All Hallows Eve vs. Fantómas III: Kiss and Live to Tell and 3 Chimps and a Chump Comic by David Eveleigh

Happy Wednesday! What a beautiful fall Wednesday! I’m glad I don’t have school today. Or tomorrow. Or the day after. 🙂

I have a great thing for you today – A DOUBLE review! Since Halloween is *just* around the corner (don’t believe me? Go to the nearest Wal*Mart, Target, Costume/Decoration store, etc.!), I’ve decided that I’ll review a Halloween-y book (actually “books“) starring my favorite pumpkin-wearing super hero!

[Summary from Smashwords] In the final, thrilling chapter of Eve’s battle with Fantomas, the Lord of Terror has taken our beloved heroine’s friends captive. Can she and an army of superheroes defeat the one villain who always wins?

This was a great ending to the Fantómas trilogy Mr. Eveleigh wrote. I like the pictures he put in, and I like how he explains how the super-heroes are “all super neurotic” – a “brain bomb” which makes everyone in the radius insane. I found that interesting. It was a bit sad too, especially because one of Eve’s friends got the blast. I like the action, and the plot twists. Very surprising. I like that everything turns out OK too (hey – I like happy endings). Eve is a great superhero. She is an inspiration to everyone who thinks they “aren’t good enough.” I like that Eve has doubts about herself and she seems like a typical teenager. It makes her character believable (well I guess until you get to the whole super powers thing 😉 ). I love how Mr. Eveleigh puts positive messages in his books too (like believing in yourself and saying no to drugs).

[Summary from Smashwords] The excitement of the Silver Age returns as our beloved heroine stars in her first full comic story! When a mysterious villain transforms three harmless chimpanzees into rampaging behemoths, there is only one superhero for the job. Can All Hallows Eve courageously contain this clan of crazy kongs before they callously crush all of creation? [I love the alliteration!]

In this colorful comic, there is everything a [comic]book geek could want – action, suspense, and hard-to-brush hair! 😉 The other All Hallows Eve books I’ve read are actually novellas, but this one is an actual comic. I actually like seeing the characters from the books in comic form. I am a fan of comic art and I like Mr. Eveleigh’s style. I love the humor Mr. Eveleigh writes in this story! This book is perfect for young comic readers because Mr. Eveleigh writes clean and has good images. There is a great message about not smoking at the end of this comic book too.

I give both of these books 5 out of 5 book worms!fivebooks

  1. I remember this series from your earlier reviews. Comics aren’t really my thing, but I’ll run these past M-man and T-man!

  2. Hmmmm…why no school? We don’t read comics much either but free makes it worth checking out. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am not a big comic fan, but I love that you are including them in your reviews as they have a big audience.

    Have you decided on your costume yet?

  4. I actually love comic art. It’s an art form unto itself.

  5. Can’t believe Halloween is just around the corner. Kids will enjoy the comic art. Great to let them know in advance!

  6. Thank you once again for such a glowing review, Erik. My copy of “The Adventures Of Tomato And Pea” just came in the mail today. I’m looking forward to reading it 😀 Maybe I’ll write you a review when I do.

    Hopefully, Eve’s next adventure will be ready in time for Halloween. Keep your eyes peeled for “All Hallows Eve In the 21st Century”! In the meantime, enjoy this sneak peek at one of the villains and ask yourself, who is Zomb-Eve? have a fun day off school, Erik ^^

  7. Well, that Eve looks pretty super alright! I know some kids who are into comics and might like this a lot. Hope you have a good holiday!

  8. Nice! They do look like fun books. And I like that Eve has great taste when it comes to awesome boys. 🙂
