    Mildly interesting, but the blas clich spy character brings nothing fresh to the genre This feels like spy satire but isn t.

  2. says:

    Yes, it does exactly what it says on the tin a seal who s a spy, albeit not a very good one as yet for reasons unrelated to being a seal Tommaso here resurrected a character he s been doodling for many years, to general acclaim I have my usual disconnect from comics set in a world recognisable as ours, realistic enough to have not just revolutionaries but tankies, yet inhabited by anthropomorphic animals Still, the Tintin...

    The art is fantastic The linework is very clean, the color palette is perfectly selected, and I love the general style Tommaso s anthropomorphized characters As other reviews have stated, the narrative is somewhat choppy in parts there are a few moments in the book that I thought would be explaine...

    I really enjoyed this The artwork and the color is so great The story is a bit silly, but it s a great way to spend a half hour.I m really happy that Image Comics decided to publish this in the European Album sized format It goes grea...

    Just one look at the cover tells you how Herge esque the art is in this book A spy story set during the cold war with all the characters being animals Malcolm is a seal and the newest MI 6 recruit this is his first mission Entertaining juvenalia which while not exciting held my attention.

    nice short spy story in the style of the Herge Tintin comics, with some very nice humor like a Wes Anderson movie, also its pretty damn cool that Rich Tommasso did everything on this book, the colors the lettering, the story everything really dig that.

    Story took some odd leaps that made me feel like pages were missing from the book Too bad, as it was otherwise quite enjoyable.

    Spy Seal is a fairly conventional spy story, except starring a seal man and various other humanoid animals, from a busty Russian bunny to a busty British kestrel in this book all the women with any role to play are defined by the main character s attraction to their level of bustiness That said, pretty much all the characters feel simple and lack layers, even the titular Spy Seal himself The art style, including the cover, is a clear and strong callback to Herg s Tintin cartoons, and that retro vibe fits the story and the weird humour well Last year when we read The Red Circle and Seven Deadly DaughtersThe Red Circle and Seven Deadly Daughters for our comic book club, I said I appreciated the uniqueness but it wasn t really my thing A lot of people recommended I try Spy Seal as a lighter and completely different example of Tommaso s work I also saw it on a lot of best of lists for 2018 I did enjoy it a littl...

    Political Adult Disconnects Story Our story begins with Malcolm the seal and Sylvia the bird discussing world politics and visiting an art gallery, which leads to Malcolm becoming a British spy and going on a spy adventure.Language Based on themes and sexual references, this is aimed at adults, despite the Tintin looking cover Overly filled with stereotypes of all sorts and attempts at dry humour, it ends up just falling flat The pacing is also really strange as action sequences are condensed into just a few frames, sometimes making it unclear as to what is even going on.Characters Each of the characters is an animal and for the most part irrelevant as to what animal There s a huge disconnect as characters from the beginning just disappear while dozens of new on...

    This comic is sure to attract many Herg lovers, and Tommaso pays homage to him quite a bit, from the ligne claire art style to the general adventurous spirit of of the main character who s reminiscent of Tintin That said, the latter stages of this volume felt like they were ripped straight out of The Black Island which soured my opinion of the work a little.More broadly, I thought this was a pretty pleasant read, although the dialogue seemed a little laboured at times Instead it s the overarching plot where were Spy Seal s main strength lies, with the story staying compelling an...
