Read full description of the books:
The Bravest Warriors continue their uniquely warped journeys across the stars! In this volume, much like last volume, which focused on depression and guilt in teens, the Bravest Warriors encounter self-doubt and shame of self-image. That sounds really bleak. It's actually fun! I promise!
I think these comics do a much better job of having high-octane, funny adventures, with fantastic character dialog, a constant stream of jokes and gags (even taking queues from Ryan North's Adventure Time with jokes hidden in the footers!), and generally light-hearted, for-all-ages space shenanigans, played out with dour, almost downright depressing, teenage slice-of-life plots, than the webshow does. I love the webshow a lot, don't get me wrong, but it's really cemented in this volume how much more analogous it is; our likable cartoon heroes are put through the same ringer as all growing humans are, only, in space, and one of them has their brains put into a giant killer robot for reasons.
I enjoy it immensely, with the action hitting harder and the stories hitting closer to home than the webshow has really done. The opening issue here, with Beth sneaking "undercover" in a Miss Teen Universe pageant, before pulling a bazooka on the judges, has more timing and pay-off than a typical single episode of the webshow, and I find it's much more convincingly illustrated, too. That's a really impressive feat, because, as I must reiterate, the webshow is fantastic. But I'm consistently reminded of how much of the Bravest Warriors formula works because of the characters, and the comics, I find, make better use of them.
This volume also marks the introduction of Catbug to the comics, the lovable, half-cat half-ladybug sidekick/acquaintance of the Bravest Warriors. His appearance does several things. One: it lets fans of the critter read about Catbug. He's pretty funny, and the breakout star and icon of the web series, so it only makes sense that he'd be a draw of the comics, too. Two: he provides apt comic relief to a story that is, by and large, pretty dark - one of perpetual adolescent body issues, kidnapping (albeit, kidnapping brains), and a bizarre amount of body horror. Without Catbag, a lot of the scenes here would be particularly disturbing - his presence eases the tone, and it's quite welcome.
As Joey Comeau and Mike Holmes continue their stellar work of taking the characters of Beth, Danny, Wallow, Chris, and Plum, and being absolutely faithful to the source material while (I think) succeeding it on a sheer technical level, so too does Ryan Pequin continue to spice up proceedings with fantastic mini-stories, with a far more solely humorous tone, that really does a fantastic job of opening up the Bravest Warriors universe, and providing a lightness to the volume that would otherwise have gone missing if it focused just on the whole kidnapped girls/teenage face-hating/robot Danny plot. And, as with last volume, the gallery of alt covers for the series is stunningly beautiful, and easily the cherry on top of the entire collection.
Bravest Warriors kicks all kinds of ass, both with its cartoon silliness, its dry wit, and its continued allegory to the hang-ups of the teenage mind. This time, they've thrown in Catbug, too. It doesn't reinvent the wheel, sure, but it keeps up the great work, and that's all it has to do to get a recommendation from me - I'm absolutely smitten.
