Connor, Leighton; Albert, Samantha; Connor, Abigail – The Electric Team #2



The Electric Team #2

Parents who are reading this, you must love comics or you wouldn’t be here, right? Maybe you’ve already figured this out, but what’s the best way to get your kids interested in comics at a young age? Why not help them write the comic that you’re putting out together? That’s the case here, and don’t fret, it’s a solid story even for non-parents like me. And frankly, Abigail’s art on page 4 (she drew one of the characters, but it made sense in the context of the comic) is better than what I could do already. If you’re curious, the whole family did the story, Leighton did the script, and Samantha did the art (except for page 4). So what about that story? We start off with a flashback to the character on the cover from when he was a kid, and how he dreamed of growing up and becoming a hero. We then switch back to his modern day perspective, and how being a hero in real life isn’t as great as he thought it would be. From there we meet the whole crew of adventurers and get a little insight into where at least a few of them came from, although I don’t think it was ever made clear where exactly they were headed. Or it was made clear in the first issue, but I only got the second issue at SPACE this year, so that’s on me. It’s an eclectic bunch, and we see them run into some creepy (but somehow still cute) pandas with bat wings along with what looks to be the big villain of the piece. I’m curious about that team, how they all came together and how they’re going to get out of their current jam, which I think means that the comic was successful. And how could you not support a comic made entirely by a family? That’s just a wonderful thing. Check it out, help make sure this kid retains her current love of comics! $4
