Mildly interesting, but the blasé cliché spy character brings nothing fresh to the genre. This feels like “spy satire” but isn’t.

The art is fantastic! The linework is very clean, the color palette is perfectly selected, and I love the general style Tommaso's anthropomorphized characters.
As other reviews have stated, the narrative is somewhat choppy in parts--there are a few moments in the book that I thought would be expl...

Rich Tomasso’s “Spy Seal” is an homage to Tintin comics that is pretty to look at but doesn’t quite work on a character level.
The main character is learning to become a spy and works with a ton of new animals throughout the book. His relationships with the multitude of characters introduced is c...

Three and a half stars. This is a fairly enjoyable romp, with a naive spy dumped into the deep end of solving international espionage cases. The story seemed to jump about wildly near the end, which is too sudden and clearly set up for sequels - although as the hawk is as drop-dead sexy as the se...

Objectively, I feel like this wasn't a great comic. However, it operates with enough ridiculous, self-aware flair that I found myself enjoying the experience anyway.

A great throwback to the great Belgian comics of the 30’s and 40’s. Has kind of a Wes Andersony vibe thrown in. As a huge Tintin fan, can’t wait for more.

So much fun. The best parts of Tin Tin and James Bond, but, y'know, with talking animals.
