The Castoffs 1, 2, 3 by MK Reed, Brian Smith and Molly Ostertag comic review

Issue #1

The Castoffs #1

Goodreads / Comixology UK / Amazon UK

Art: The art is so pretty! I love the colour style, just the style in general! The world looks so interesting and the characters themselves look unique.

The intro to this comic is excellent. I was immediately intrigued. It did very well with introducing characters and the world without making it overwhelming.

I found this volume quite short, perhaps this is because I’ve not read comics before? So this may be a normal length.

It did, however, do its job. As soon as I finished it, I was scrambling to get the next one because it had me hooked.

Issue 2

The Castoffs #2

Comixology UK / Amazon UK

Art: Still loving the colour pallet, lots of warm oranges and yellows that suit it  very well.

The comic’s moving smoothly. A little disappointed by how quickly the cliffhanger from the previous comic was resolved, but I love what happened. (Haha, is the vagueness killing you?!)

I feel as if it ended too soon again. I finish it within 20 minutes easy. This may be normal for comics. I am used to mangas which are longer and, of course, novels.

Issue 3

The Castoffs #3

Comixology UK / Amazon UK

Art: I really love how uncluttered the art boxes are. The artist knows what they’re doing. I’m never confused as to which box is next, (and believe me, this has happened to me a lot.)

I like the characters so far and plot line is interesting, this particular arc is very recognizable, but still fun in this world. I feel like the climax of this part will come to head in the next volume.

Right now, there only seems to be 3 issues available, but I will be continuing this comic once there’s more. (Hopefully there’s more because the last issue released December 2016.)
