Review:

"Acrobat, quick-change artist, and thief: is there anything Bandette can't do? She certainly has the skill to capture your attention in this gleeful, cheery adventure by married creators Tobin and Coover (Banana Sunday, Gingerbread Girl). Like Raffles or the Saint, Bandette is a thief with a heart of gold, rescuing common folk in distress and liberating stolen works of art (saving a few for her personal museum, of course). Tobin's characters deftly tread the tightrope between saccharine and caricature, and Coover's colorful, fluid art gives homage to the European fine-line illustration of Hergé, without slavishly copying it. Coover's gorgeously rendered Paris architecture, lively and energetic figures, and especially the whirling dervish Bandette, are rendered in a soft-toned, impressionistic painting style that immediately differentiates the many characters and highlights the script's comic timing. A rich treasure trove of backup pieces include short 'Urchin Stories,' focusing on Bandette's supporting cast of accomplices and antagonists, and Coover's step-by-step guide through her art and computer-coloring techniques. This is a wonderful gateway comic for readers of all ages — one of the brightest, and most fun, comics of the year. (Dec.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
