Rocketo Volume 1: The Journey to the Hidden Sea Reviews
Can't completely buy into the story because the characters need a little more work. But that art is amazing. So many places in this where a pen would have given the artist just the right line and he resists and just uses a brush instead. Every panel is a work of art. The story is so ambitious and creative. It can only be saved by more. So much more.
When I first flipped through this book, I thought it was from Dean Haspiel as it had that same kind of "Bruiser" art. Although it wasn't, the character of Rocketo could definitely fall under that category :) Reading through this book gave me the same kind of magical excitement / feelings as I had watching those old Sinbad movies when I was younger, or Forbidden Planet. In comics, I would compare it to the Flash Gordon strips or even - in some cases, strange as it may seem - Herge's Tintin! A great Fantasy Adventure that doesn't let up.
this was a pretty fun read. lots of big ideas in the story but i felt like the writing could have been tightened up a bit. beautifully illustrated, however the art is so stylised that occasionally it's a little unclear what's going on, especially in the super kinetic action sequences. it's nice to see some decently done pulpy/retro sci-fi though, and i will most likely pick up the next volume.
Loved this story and the art. Although it attempted to confuse me at times and I would have to re-read pages in order to figure out who said what. Just a plain good adventure story here, so don't expect anything else.
Book 2 is a 2007 Cybils Graphic Novel nominee, but you know me and series...gotta read them in order.Very comic book-y. Plot seems random.
outstanding original brush style
This is such an amazing book...transporting me back to a time when well-envisioned fantastic worlds captured my imagination. Lyrically illustrated and written, I could read this over and over again.
Marvelous illustrations, terrible writing
this is the story about Rocketto a mapper and its adventures. The journey into the hidden sea is a very dangerous adventure in which he fights monsters and a storm.
