Gladstone’s School for World Conquers-Advanced Review
Published on Monday, May 2, 2011 by

Narrated to tell the reader how this cartoony comic and the school it is named for came into being, this is a fun throwback book. The art is cartoony. The story is fun. The narrator is intrusive. The characters are fantastically created to be whimsical and fierce which works for the light cartoony tone.

“Those who can do do, and those that cannot do, they teach.” This comic applies this old cliche to a down on his luck inept super villain who starts a school to help enrich the villain society. He fails, but the school prospers in a very comical manner.

After the instructive narrator the book moves into telling tales of students from the school. The reader can infer that this book will loosely follow the adventures, and misadventures, of students from the school in future installments.

This is a fun light-hearted comic that seems thus far to be appropriate to older children, teens, and adults. The scripts are simple and direct and the splatter is almost non-existent. This comic harkens back to a time before the blood and gore dripped from the heroes fists when comics could be enjoyed by children of nearly all ages.
