What to expect: Comic Style, Aliens, Humor, Quirkiness
Have you ever heard a child say the words I’m bored? Well, this quirky, out-there graphic novel, written by eight-year-old Matteo Moro, has all the boring bases covered with characters standing in line, taking naps, and doing homework. Only Captain Fingerman (a two-finger guy that resembles an upside-down peace sign) has an experience that is anything but boring. If galactic adventures, graphic novels, and oddball storylines are your thing, be prepared to laugh your way through the Boring Galaxy with this new children’s book character that is like no other.
Captain Fingerman dons a spacesuit and travels the universe by way of a banana spacecraft. Sounds fun already, right? When he spots an asteroid from the Boring Galaxy, call him crazy, but he wants to explore. There will be travelling via a wormhole—whoosh!— with visits to the Bored Planet, followed by the Homework Planet, and more. He has loads of encounters with dastardly characters, including aliens and an evil monkey. The comic-style illustrations are colourfully entertaining—and by colourful, we also mean wacky. Readers are bound to enjoy the ‘How to Draw Captain Fingerman’ steps in the final pages. Also included are suggestions for drawing an array of expressive faces that readers will have spotted on the captain throughout the story.
If bananas, burps, bullets (made from bananas), and bad-mannered space bandits sound like an entertaining (if not slightly eccentric) combination, then you’d be right. It is highly unlikely that a reader will feel bored after reading Captain Fingerman & the Boring Galaxy. Speechless possibly, but definitely not bored!
