|"Another week, another comic, as reviewed by Salen Stormwing. This week, Catharsis. A loving story about a girl, her pet dragon, and a squirrel with a bad attitude."
"Catharsis isn't very serious, nor does it handle hard hitting issues. It's actually probably a lot closer to the sort of comic you might expect to read in your local newspaper. You don't have to really start from the beginning to enjoy the comic, but it doesn't hurt either."
Artwork: "While the artwork starts off fairly plain in the beginning, it does change some as the comic continues, and with the addition of color, its not a huge leap forward but it doesn't really hurt either. Plus, colors are nice to see, if just because it lets you see things in colors. Yeah, that'll indepth reviewing at its finest." Salen facepalms and sighs.
Characters: "Well, lets see, you have Gwen, who's your not-so typical working girl, with a tomgirl 8-year old alter-ego. Weee. Then you have Rremly, who's her dragon, but to everyone else he looks like a dog. Did I mention he's not exactly the smartest egg in the nest. And then you have Baxter, a squirrel who ends up being the cause of many problems for Gwen, or maybe just one really large headache."
"Then there are dust bunnies, cute guys, and work, and other things like that. If you've read the Sunday comics page, you'll probably have an idea on the interactions that happen."
Writing & Plot: "Remember what I said about typical Sunday comic interaction? Thats about the same here. I guess I'm not sure how to really explain it. There are a few things that do follow a plot arch, every now and then. I found it entertaining though, but then again, I read 50+ comics a day, I'm not exactly picky about what I read."
Overall: "Don't ask me why, but I like this comic. Its cute. Its not very serious. And I find it entertaining. I guess in the end, you should read the comic for yourself, and see if you enjoy the light humor. If you don't, there are plenty of serious comics for which you could read."
Score: 7 3/4 Wild Cherries out of 10.
PS: Sorry this review is so short. I don't feel well currently. x_x I'll do better next week.
