Uglydoll: Goin' Places! Review (Viz Media)

What It Is

Uglydoll: Shhhhhhhh! and Uglydoll: Goin' Places! are two comic books that feature the cuddly and monstrous-looking Uglydoll stuffed animal characters. Each 77-page comic book is sold separately.

Uglydoll: Shhhhhhhh! includes 17 comic stories about secret identities, secret crushes, secret hiding places, and how to be a ninja. The stories are written by Travis Nichols with artwork from Ian McGinty, Michael E. Wiggam, Chanmen, Peter Fowler, Bwana Spoons, Phillip Jacobson, Sun-Min Kim, and David Horvath.

Uglydoll: Goin' Places! includes 18 comic stories about the Uglydolls going into space, traveling back in time, and sailing the seven seas. The stories are written by Travis Nichols with artwork from Sun-Min Kim, David Horvath, Ian McGinty, Phillip Jacobson, Mike LE Kelly, and James Kochalka.

Is It Fun?

For kids (and adults) who love Uglydolls, these comic books are a must-read. Kids will love reading these colorful and silly stories about the Uglydolls getting themselves into all sorts of crazy scenarios and eating lots of cookies while they're at it. Because there are so many different illustrators for each book, the artwork varies from story to story, and it's really interesting to see each artist's interpretation of the characters. It might even inspire kids to try drawing their own comics for their favorite Uglydolls.

Who It’s For

Uglydoll: Goin' Places! is for ages 8-12.

What To Be Aware Of

Two additional Uglydoll comics are also available, Eat Dat! and My Hero?, sold separately.
