“Kindergoth is the story of sarcastic tattooed and body pierced kindergartners saving the world from an alien invasion. All the while still having to deal with bullies, bad cafeteria food and the horrors of public school.”

This is one funny comic book. The stories are more “kid friendly” but they have an upbeat tone to them. Kinda Calvin and Hobbes like, where people of any age should enjoy them. A very cool and fun read, with great artwork on every page.

Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
I highly enjoyed the look of the two stories in this issue. With two different artists I thought that there might be different styles but both were able to stay true to the characters, which was nice. Neither had a different look, matter of fact if I didn’t know in advance I would have said there was only one artist working on this. The art style is straight out of the Sunday funnies but it is what is expected for the kind of story. Great work.

Story: 4.0 out of 5
There are two shorts in this issue and both are solid reads. Sure your not going to get anything that is in depth, but you get some pretty good humor here. The first story was my favorite, especially the girl who is a liar saying her dad made elephants. That had me cracking up. If you like the upbeat fun comic style books this is one to check out. Very nicely done.

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
Overall this issue contains all the elements it needs to make itself entertaining. You get a fun comical story on top of nice artwork. Fans of the DC Kids and Archie books should give this one a read. Plus if you want your kids to check something out that isn’t the norm it’s worth the money. I sure wasn’t let down once and I want to read more, because I love humorous comics.
