With a character called Caca what do you think Astro Mouse and Light Bulb vs the Troublesome 4 is about?
Well, Fermin Solis created a book about a Mouse called Astro Mouse, a space explorer who is as bright as a burned-out light bulb. There is a Light Bulb (that is robotic like and floats along) who is smart and who has a crush on a lamp. There is a Lamp that likes having adventures with Light Bulb. There is a funky Space Chicken, talking bubble gum people, Dumpling people (living on a planet made of dumplings, in houses made of dumplings and who eat dumplings), a Skunk Woman and more.
Even though some of the characters of book one show up again, you can read this graphic novel without having known the adventures of before. Out of all the things I disliked about this book, that was the main thing I enjoyed. I had not realized this was book two, therefore, being able to start with it, and not be too lost, was a nice surprise. Of course, I recommend reading book one as you will be introduced to Astro Mouse and some quirks are best explained by knowing book one.
This second book in the Astro Mouse series has everything a Cartoon Network cartoon would have. Bad jokes, bad morals, and simple art. I am starting to get bored with the “Hero/Main Character” being clueless, none to intelligent and having an ego. Jim Salicrup’s afterwards is more humorous for me than the entire two-story arc I had read before it. But if you like that goofy, off beat, bathroom humor, the universe is the limit and you probably should read this book series.
