Comic Review: Dinopopolous

Review: Dinopopolous / Written by: Nick Edwards / Illustrated by: Nick Edwards / Published by: Blank Slate Books / Release Date: Out Now

Nick Edwards is a London based illustrator with a love of science fiction, dinosaurs, robots and cats. His first comic book sees him teaming up with the guys from Blank Slate Books to bring us Dinopopolous.

Nigel is a 13 year old school boy from Chipton and is in love with his classmate Martha. Sounds normal enough you might think, apart from his mystery solving partner in crime and best friend, Brian the dinosaur.

When Nigel receives an urgent email from Lancaster Perrifold, desperately requesting his help to hunt down The Miracle Bird of Ndundoo, how could he refuse? But what makes The Miracle Bird on Ndundoo so special, well it excretes jewels, that's what! The only clue he has to go in is a Ndundoo artifact, encased in sand and covered in weird symbols. This doesn't hold him back and Nigel and Brian are off on their adventure with their nemesis Justin and the Evil League of Lizards hot on their heels.

This brilliant comic book is like something from a Nickelodeon cartoon crossed with a Day of the Tentacle, Lucas Arts style computer games. Back in 2009, Nick Edwards won The Cartoon Museum’s Under 30’s Young Cartoonist of the Year and this comic is a great testament as to why. Some of the pages have so many little details in them, you could see something new every time you look at it. With dinosaurs wielding laser cannons, underground monsters, treasure pooping birds and the overall psychedelic, fun packed style of it all, there's nothing I didn't like about this comic.

Nick Edwards appears to be an indie comic gem to keep an eye on and I really hope there's more coming from him soon.
