Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (5 ):

As long as there are James Bond films, there wil be send-ups of them, and this goofy version hits the funny bone with a sure aim. Spy School: The Graphic Novel by Stuart Gibbs and Anjan Sarkar keeps the action lively, serving up ridiculous (in a good way) plot twists and action sequences. Like a PG-rated Austin Powers prequel, it skewers the clichés of spydom by giving them a middle school twist. The result is funny and suspenseful, the vibrant and kinetic artwork well matched to the subject. Young fans can look forward to further volumes in this engaging comics series.
