Over the Garden Wall Vol. 2 Reviews
4/5 I love the continuation of the story in the first half, but the second half is a side story about the school they visit in the second (or third?) episode and it just seems meh to me.
Following the continued adventures of the wayward brothers questing for the "Hero Frog". Both recount meeting apparitions in totally different moods. We really see how Wirt is very melodramatic and overthinks himself, while Greg takes everything in a bright friendly way as a child. They become separated and find their own adventures on the way. The second half oddly returns to Miss Langtree's School of animal students and their lives. They gain a new elephantine exchange student and must rescue some of their troublemaking students playing hooky from school. Hope to see what the brother encounter in their later quests!
Now having read two volumes of Over the Garden Wall I realize that it's also a bizarre maybe-for-kids, maybe-for-adults TV series on Cartoon Network. That explains a lot. Like why the first story involves a pair of brothers having, basically, a tooth decay-related nightmare. That story is funny, though, even if it totally dark and weird. The second story, about an elephant who doesn't fit in at his new school, is fundamentally dull, even if I were a member of the six-year-old target audience. Decent beginning, terrible ending for this volume.
Those who loved the Cartoon Network mini series Over the Garden Wall will want to pick this up! I personally adored the original series and think this is a great addition to it. The comic series continues the story of Wirt and Greg but also gives us insight on the sode characters in the show as well. The characters are true to themselves and just as lovable as in the original series! ~Elisa
Looking for Hero Frog, Wirt and Greg get separated. That portion of the story was really interesting. And the beginning from each of their perspectives was fun.The 2 bonus stories were ok. I liked the Pooree elephant one a bit better, it was cute. The last one on the raft was kind of boring.
This was a delightful start to my day. The first story showed the quest for Greg's 'hero frog' through Greg's adorably optimistic worldview and Wirt's lens of fear. It was a clever way to contrast brothers that are as different as potatoes and molasses. (Episode 3 reference, look it up!)
This was just weird. The first story involved the boys & their epic journey to find home (told from both viewpoints). The next stories were entirely unrelated and just a bit odd.
