GUYABANO HOLIDAY GN
Dan Abdo and Jason Patterson, the creators behind the very sweet Blue, Barry and Pancakes series, hit the ball out of the park with their latest creation, pithily billed as “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power meets Dav Pilkey’s Dog Man”. That’s not a bad description, really, as we meet Barb, a berzerker who is out to free her people from the clutches of Witch Head (excellent name). With her trusty sidekick Porkchop the Yeti, Barb faces down all manner of foes: giants with smelly feet; snot goblins; and vampire goats! This is a wonderful all ages creation with a fierce little girl at its heart, filled with comedic banter and fun action that smaller kids (and right minded adults) will eat right up. And happily it’s the first in a series!
