Willow and Wisp are best friends and they play in the backyard of Willow’s house. They have a make-believe land of wizards and warriors, Willow being the wizard and Wisp being the warrior. Wisp lives wither her single mother. One night Wisp hears something outside and discovers someone is trying to break into her Mom’s car. As she looks outside, she doesn’t see people, she sees three creatures. They begin to chase hers and as she tries to escape a sprite Twink appears. He says the only way to defeat the monsters is the bright light, so Wisp runs to Willow’s house knowing that she has bright lights outside. As the lights turn on Wisp is transported into another world. What will happen to Wisp? Who is Twink? Where in the heck is Rainbow Brite?

I knew this was gonna be a kids comic book because Rainbow Brite is geared to kids. The writing from Jeremy Whitley is spot on for of children’s comic.  I appreciate Whitley’s girl-centric focus on this comic because you know Rainbow Brite is a girl in charge of all of the Rainbow Scouts. It looks like he’s coming from the viewpoint of she’s a tough girl who knows how to take care of herself which makes for a good beginning.

Britney in William style of artistry is very likeable in this comic, it’s almost the way manga is drawn; kids have very big eyes and a lot of expressions in a simple form. The colors from Valentina Pinto are very kid friendly, I do enjoy the different palettes that she uses. It doesn’t distract from the story or from the art but it’s a good compliment to Williams form of drawing.

This comic deserves 4 stars as I am really looking forward to seeing where the story is going and how the character Wisp is integrated into Rainbow Brite and how she is going to connect between the 2 worlds.
