Read full description of the books:
Every page in Doug TenNapel’s Cardboard pops to life with color, action, imagination, and heart!
Cam and his Dad are going through a rough time. Both trying to find a way to live without Cam’s mother. Loneliness, grief, and fear show up throughout the story in heartbreaking quiet ways and not so subtle ways. Add no job, financial woes, bully troubles, and a birthday—well these guys have their hands full! Cam’s father needs a miracle or a bit of magic to afford a gift for his son’s birthday. And magic is just what he finds in a cardboard box. Magic and trouble! Father and son twist, bend, and build people out of the cardboard. People that come to life. And that’s where the trouble begins…
Strong father and son messages color and fill these pages. Fathers trying to find a way to communicate and bond with their sons. (view spoiler)[ I really didn’t want to mention this, but the women characters need work here. Very flat. Tina!--the man will move on when he is ready! Sorry just needed to get that out. The next door neighbor drove me nuts! (hide spoiler)] I loved Cam and his father’s banter and relationship, but about half way through, the story seemed to shift more towards understanding Marcus—the neighborhood bully. To be honest, I really didn’t like Marcus. His eyes gave me the creeps. Huge pools of creepiness! I realize that isn’t the greatest reason to dislike a character, but it’s the truth. Haha…Plus I may have overdosed on the sad, misunderstood bully characters and tales lately. I wished the focus and spotlight had remained on Cam and his Dad.
This comic book is built around a brilliant idea! Cardboard people and monsters that come to life! Love it! But it had a few bumps for me. We never truly learn why or how the cardboard comes to life or any concrete reasoning behind the rules of the box. I’m all for mystery and magic--sometimes not knowing fills a story with wonder and power. But here it just felt a bit lazy leaving so many unanswered questions.
A fun adventure packed with action that will find an audience. But for me, this tale lost its bite and magic about half way through.
I will be on the lookout for more from Mr. TenNapel though. I highly recommend his Bad Island.
