Misfit City Vol. 1 Read Online Free - Nothing’s happened in Wilder’s hometown since they filmed that cult kids’ adventure movie there in the 80s...Until one day, she and her friends come upon a centuries-old pirate map!
Smothered by her backwater hometown and frustrated by its 1980s cult-movie fame (The Gloomies...have you seen it? It’s a real classic, y’know.), Wilder is pretty sure she’s seen everything Cannon Cove has to offer. She’s desperate to get away from home as soon as she can, and move on to bigger, better, and less annoying things…even if that might mean leaving her best friends behind.
But when Wilder discovers a centuries-old pirate map, she may find out that REAL adventure was in their tiny town all along...and they need each other to get to the bottom of it! It’s a rip-roaring adventure written by award-winning screenwriter Kiwi Smith (10 Things I Hate About You, Legally Blonde) and Kurt Lustgarten, and illustrated by Naomi Franquiz.

A FEMALE GOONIES RIP OFF?! FUCK YES! I'm all over this like genital warts on a frat boy.
There isn't much to dislike here - the kinda Goonies rip off Gloomers references, the art, the all female leads. If I were to come up with a graphic novel this is what I'd be aiming for. But m...

It's like all those 80s, 90s, etc. movies with male groups of friends that you grew up wishing GIRLS HAD.

I do wish the characters had a bit more depth, there are a lot of them and they don't get developed too...

I loved the art in this but as far as character and plot, it felt like it was trying really hard to be Lumberjanes. The characters, setting, and plot could have been better developed. The action started happening before I felt invested in the characters and cared what happened to them.

This book desperately wants to be a madcap adventure filled with pirates, hidden treasure and quirky female protagonists. The adventure is mild, and the characters really don't consist of much beyond their quirks. It seems more like a book trying to get on a bandwagon (see: Lumberjanes, Ms. Marve...

A cute, fun mystery adventure comic. Nothing really deep or surprising about it, but it's an engaging, endearing and thrilling ride nonetheless, filled to the treasure trove brim with interesting female characters.
Set in a cove, which was new to me in graphic novel reading, 'Misfit City' is an h...

The premise is fun, but it doesn't quite succeed in what it's trying to do -- at least in the view of this reader. I fully expect others will be more forgiving, and I imagine those looking for distraction between Lumberjanes releases will find some satisfaction here.

A Goonies reference wrapped in a Goonies reference covered in everything you love about the Boom! Box imprint of comics. Great first issue.

What happens when you live in the town where they filmed The Goonies and you have to deal with fans overrunning your burger shops, libraries and museums desperate for any film lore or souvenir they can find and then you find a treasure map? I actually have no idea, but I can't wait to find out!
