Spy Seal, Vol. 1
Journey into the thrilling world of international espionage as one of Britain's most covert MI-6 divisions, the Nest, recruits a brand-new secret agent to their team: Spy Seal! Follow the newbie spy and his furry colleagues on exciting train rides, high-speed car chases, high-flying air adventures, and down secret underground tunnels, all in an effort to hunt down a dangerous British-turned-Soviet double agent—a slippery spy who poses as an upscale art dealer while covertly killing off important figures of Parliament. What is the reasoning behind this double agent's terrorist actions? Why are three masked bunny rabbits vandalizing paintings at every London gallery? And just what is this elusive Corten-Steel Phoenix anyway? Check out this deluxe format edition to decipher the answers to these and other puzzling questions in RICH TOMMASO's (SHE WOLF) latest series, visually reminiscent of such classic comics as The Adventures of Tintin and Usagi Yojimbo.Collects SPY SEAL #1-4

Spy Seal, Vol. 1 Review

    Mildly interesting, but the blasé cliché spy character brings nothing fresh to the genre. This feels like “spy satire” but isn’t.

    Yes, it does exactly what it says on the tin; a seal who's a spy, albeit not a very good one as yet (for reasons unrelated to being a seal). Tommaso here resurrected a character he's been doodling for many years, to general acclaim; I have my usual disconnect from comics set in a world recognisable as ours, realistic enough to have not just revolutionaries but tankies, yet inhabited by anthropomorphic animals. Still, the Tintin-styled art (and plot, for that matter) do make for some lovely lands Yes, it does exactly what it says on the tin; a seal who's a spy, albeit not a very good one as yet (for reasons unrelated to being a seal).

    Three and a half stars. This is a fairly enjoyable romp, with a naive spy dumped into the deep end of solving international espionage cases. The story seemed to jump about wildly near the end, which is too sudden and clearly set up for sequels - although as the hawk is as drop-dead sexy as the seal hero says, that may be no bad thing. (And if that sentence never sounded like making sense to you, this may not be a book to your taste.)

    God bless Rich Tommaso and his insane, passionate pursuit to cover every single freaking genre out there. Sometimes all in one book (She-Wolf), sometimes separately, like in this spy spoof/homage/whatever this is. It's fun enough and the art is great, so if you're not yet fed up with the secret agent fare, check it out.

    Story took some odd leaps that made me feel like pages were missing from the book. Too bad, as it was otherwise quite enjoyable.

    So much fun. The best parts of Tin Tin and James Bond, but, y'know, with talking animals.
