Bo and his new special forces unit are in a showdown with the Rasta Gang. It’s all out battle with our plushy protagonist, exosuits, ninja-girls, and Jamaican octopus controlled zombies!
I remember when I first caught wind of this book, and not surprisingly enough, was curious to see just what it could possibly be about. Let’s be honest, the concept of a gangster teddy bear, that is hilarious. And weird. Weirdly hilarious? Regardless of what you want to call it, Bo Plushy Gangsta is not your average book. Or your average bear (I couldn’t help myself)
Somehow I managed to miss issues 2 and 3, so you’ll forgive me if I’m missing any details to assist with this review. It seems in the time since the first issue though, things have certainly escalated for our squishy gun-toting bear. With this latest enemy being no less crazy than the first, it’s a good thing Bo has some awesome new companions to help in the battle. My only complaint with this issue honestly is the difficulty trying to read dialogue from our new nemesis, but that’s understandable. It’s hard just listening to Jamaican, let alone reading it.
As I had hoped would follow through the series, the strong and sharp artwork is just as powerful here. When you have battles like previously mentioned that are as intense as these, you need the art to be in your face. I particularly love how vibrant the color jobs are throughout this book, they’re really fantastic. And even with so many unusual, but awesome characters, they’re all drawn with their own unique flair.
Now that I’ve been reassured of how well this ridiculously fun this book still is, I have to go back and read 2 and 3. I will also be making an effort to catch any issues from this one forward. When a book involves things like ninja hotties, Jamaican zombies and a teddy bear with a grill, how can you not have fun? Grab onto this title if you haven’t already, it’s completely worth it.
