  -I avoided this title like the plague in my youth. I'm not sure exactly who they were aiming this at, because the characters are wee, but the dialogue is not.
-The art is nice and I guess it wasn't so f*ckin' bad--but it totally smacks of a 80s-style TV show...I wonder why. :-)

  A comic for the smaller children, so it was a bit bold to kill off the MyLittlePony in the first issue.

  Whitey looks so 1980's.

  The Kymellians are ridiculous, but I'm digging the family dynamics and the "actual kids" feel of the characters. The idea of aiming this at kids seems off, though; kids tend to like older, aspirational characters and this reads like a title written by parents for parents, dealing with the quirks and growing-up of youngsters. Maybe it would've been good for parents to read to really young kids, but that doesn't seem too likely?

  The premise is a good one and the characters are kind of adorable. Four children, running around barefoot, playing pretend as superheroes. Only here, they actually became superheroes. Too bad the story wasn't as good as the premise.

  This is going to be childish, I can already tell. Even so, I was oddly entertained.

  Not exactly what I suspected. Interesting at least, if not very amazing. Curious how this goes, but the comments here make me nervous.
