Review: I had never heard of this show or comics/ graphic novels until Cat from The Little Book Owl mentioned them on her youtube channel. I figured that if she liked it so would I. The perfect opportunity came when I saw these volumes at Comic Con and grabbed them for myself. 
I really liked this edition. I love the drawings and the characters are fantastic! I also liked that it was humorous. The notes at the bottom (although the colour was really hard to read) were funny as well. 
I will absolutely be reading more of these since I do own a few more haha. Hopefully I enjoy them as much as this one. I would recommend these to those who enjoy shows like Spongebob.
