Fresh from DreamWorks Animation’s new film Home, Titan Comics bring you the all-new adventures of the friendliest and most inept world dominators you’ve ever seen! The Boov are an alien race trying to make Earth their home, but they really don’t get human culture…
Since their huge burst onto the big screen until today, I have always loved computer animated films. Not that I don’t appreciate a good classic animation piece, but I can’t help but lean towards those driven by ever growing PC technology. Taking one of the newest of those and bringing it to the comic medium, our first peek at Home lets us follow along in the comfort of our own.
I have to be completely honest, I have never even heard of this movie. Whatever the reason may be, I was still curious enough to see what it was about. With Home, we join a girl named Tip and her alien companion Oh. As an obvious stranger to the planet, Oh learns the ins and outs of Hide and Seek. Naturally, he adds his own personal technique to the game with amusing results.
Although this is based on the work of a computer animated movie, the art returns to the traditional comic look. They are definitely as clean and sharp looking as that of its original appearance though, offering up very nice looking artwork. The colors are really vibrant and make every page of strong lineart pop making for a visually appealing read.
Being targeted more towards an audience of the younger side, this book isn’t going to be for everyone. It’s definitely a fun read, and one that I can imagine being fully enjoyed by families with small children. I don’t know that I’d really want to read more, but have no problem suggesting this as a good pick up for a good family comic day.
