If you’ve been following my work here at Biff Bam Pop! you’ll know that I’m on something of a journey to discover comics that are beyond the limited spectrum of mainstream super hero books. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a weekly reader of my favorite heroes and escapist adolescent power fantasies. In fact, I’m the first to argue that there’s some really great work being done by the Big Two publishers right now if you’re willing to look for it. However, I’m always left wanting more.
That’s where’s Clonsters from Amy Shand, Pat Shand, and Vanessa Cardinali and comes in. An all-ages book from Space Between Entertainment appeared in my inbox recently and given that I fall under the banner of all-ages I decided to give it a try. Did I find the “more” that I was looking for? Find out after the jump!
