book review: bad island

Doug TenNappel’s Bad Island is a comic about a family of four who go out on a sailboat vacation and end up shipwrecked on an island filled with strange creatures. It’s also about an intergalactic being who went to war despite its parent’s wishes. The comic has lots of good family banter (everyone is funny and trying to make the best of a bad situation) and excellent splash pages of pople running from rock monsters or whatever. I love TenNapel’s drawing style. The intergalactic being story was a little bit confusing with its early lack of context, but it all works out.
