DOWNLOAD Bad Island í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Something on this island is up to no good When Reese is forced to go on a boating trip with his family the last thing he expects is to be shipwrecked on an island especially one tee. It s enough to make you want to take up brain surgery I read some comics for kids and I can hardly move through the recycled tropes and old overdone ideas cluttering up the pages Then I read a book by Doug TenNapel When the man s Ghostopolis came out last year I was delighted Sure we ve all seen the idea of the afterlife as a city done before May Bird Billy Bones etc but TenNapel s storytelling managed to incorporate this odd and uniue internal logic that I d never seen anywhere before Now I ve picked up his next Graphix GN Bad Island and while I wish I could just compare it to something I ve seen before I cannot What currently operates in the brain of this man baffles me His books read like fever dreams that make sense and if rumors about his next cardboard related comic are to be believed he s not exactly going mainstream anytime soon Sometime a kid wants a stand alone graphic novel that also happens to be epic And if it s epic you seek epic you will find in this strange near indescribable little piece Okay Here comes the tough part of the review The part where I try to summarize the plot Bear with me now Two planets Two rebellious sons In a distant universe a battle wages Giant creatures have secured the freedom of a relatively tiny species that they allow to live on their very skin The giants rely on these people to operate their battle armor and other internal mechanics which is a good thing since the tiny people s previous hosts have returned to reclaim their slaves The son of the king of the giants is determined to fight as well but his efforts lead only to his capture at the hands of the enemy and banishment to a far away world Meanwhile centuries later here on earth teenaged Reese is trying desperately to figure out how to get out of the lame family vacation his dad has planned No one seems thrilled to be taking a boat ride not Reese or his mom or his snake obsessed little sister Janie And that s before the family gets caught up in a freak storm and shipwrecks on a strange deserted island There they find creatures the like of which they ve never seen a strange artifact that appears to be leading them somewhere and a malevolent presence that wants something that they have and is willing to do anything it can to get it back I recently had a conversation with a children s author about whether or not kids vs teens prefer series books with cliffhanger endings We both agreed that in our experience kids are actually less delighted by series than their older counterparts A child between the ages of 9 12 is interested in a bit of smart storytelling Sometimes seeing a 1 on the spine just frustrates them One of TenNapel s remarkable ualities is the fact that he creates perfect little worlds that have no need of seuels None at all Now the danger of creating your own mythology is that no one else is going to buy it And the best way to make them buy into it is to make it horrendously long or the first in a series That TenNapel consistently packs whole worlds into his books without making them A 500 pages long or B The first of a 10 book series or C incoherent isn t just rare in this day and age It s near impossible to find in any other GN author for kids Thank god he actually has the chutzpah to pull it off Myth making is all well and good but what sets this book apart from the usual heroic narrative pack is the family element At the heart of this story is a tale about getting to know and care about your siblings and parents in the midst of true danger As such the book fleshes out a family that not only rings true on the page but that you want to know about I think the moment when I was completely on board with them was when Janie insisted on lugging her dead snake with her wherever the family went The gentle macabre nature of this just struck me as oddly real Then there s the change that comes over Reese s dad from bumbling to capable I was also fairly pleased that the mom could hold her own and didn t need any of the typical rescuing moms tend to lend themselves to in books of this sort I was also pleased to see that there s than a jot of humor to this story There are overt physical gags like the dad getting bitten by the snake and my personal favorite managing to light all the matches in the matchbox on fire at once But there are subtler spoken gags as well and a real family camaraderie and back and forth that makes you believe in these people Interestingly I found the sections with the humans far interesting than the ones with the giants As it should be And for the art TenNapel has a distinctive style that reveals itself in sharp jaw lines and akimbo elbows At the same time he knows how to keep a page interesting Shadows and scenes seen from different angles appear alongside variegated panel sizes and consistently interesting layouts There s a controlled messiness to TenNapel s style that serves him here With this book he can use his style to bring forth the dirt and grime of the outdoors Indeed I think he d have a harder time if he ever set one of his stories in a pristine clean robotic world His is an art of well ordered chaos on the edge of going entirely insane Nothing bad really happens to our heroes in this book but you are never in any doubt that it would take surprisingly little to change that fact The lure of TenNapel s art is that it verges on the insane Actually the book that this would pair the best with might be Don Wood s own island related graphic novel Into the Volcano In both cases you have reluctant boy protagonists coming into their own to save their family members Both also have a strange reluctance to trust an island Wood because they can always blow up or emit poison gas or try to kill you some other way TenNapel because they might one day just up and leave with you still on them On its own however Bad Island provides the mix of storytelling and action heart and excitement which many a graphic novel strives for and few actually attain There s substance to this puppy Something that sticks long after you ve read it And for many a kid that ll be enough Definitely check it outFor ages 9 12

Nope This island was populated only by hostile creatures and I think it was intentional But who would do that The military Some greedy corrupt corporation Son you ve watched too many movies Then who Canada After a forced fun family vacation turns disastrous Reese and his family find themselves shipwrecked on a remote island surrounded by strange plants and wildlife What the family soon discovers is that the island is the direct product of an ancient battle waged beyond our planet And if the family doesn t discover what their found clues and artifacts mean it will be too late This was a fun uick read definitely a good one for tween and reluctant readers I enjoyed TenNapel s GHOSTOPOLIS and the artwork in this GN is similarly strong with great coloring and action seuences I ve read how the plot in this work parallels some incidents in the tv series LOST but having never watched that show I ll take their word for it If you re looking for strong character development and an airtight plot seek elsewhere But if you take this book for what it is it s a good read one that is sure to keep a reader s interest
