Locked away with a Brain, an Athlete, a Basket Case, and a Princess. It’s detention time for Bandit. The Hero Cats of Skyworld meet for the first time!
Ok, this time I don’t feel like I’ve suddenly come out of some comic wormhole and trying to get my bearings. After getting adjusted to this brand new environment in the last issue, I was actually looking forward to seeing what happens next. So, why don’t we do that and get into issue seventeen with our Hero Cats of Skyworld.
Quite unlike him, Bandit finds himself captured in this new world and his fellow prisoners are the homegrown Hero Cats. Doing his best to explain the events involving the Crow King on Earth, he also tries to convince this band of cats to fight back here, in Skyworld. After getting freed by Robot, Bandit and his new companions agree to come up with a plan to take down the Crow King.
I’d probably have to attribute my slightly increased appreciation for the art to the fantasy setting. There’s always been bright and enjoyable visuals in this series regardless of where the cats have adventured. So, when you start adding things like magic and dragons and even crow minions, it’s just going to look cooler.
With Bandit taking charge of these Hero Cats of Skyworld, we may just finally see the Crow King defeated for good. Even if we don’t though, it’s going to be another great story to add to the collection. You shouldn’t need to go to another world to get this issue, so there’s no excuse not to.
