ICv2 Checks Out Capt'n Eli

Steve Bennett checks out Jay Piscopo's "The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli" graphic novel series for ICv2.  Read all about it at this link.  

Writer/artist Jay Piscopo was good enough to send me copies of the first three volumes of his series The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli and they’re right in my wheelhouse.  The premise (young genius Eli, his dog and talking parrot travel together in a mini-sub of his own design) is wonderfully reminiscent of the adventure cartoons of my youth.  Frankly, that would have been high enough of a premise for me, but Piscopo quickly piles on more and more complications, creatures and fantastic (some strangely familiar) characters.  Until young Eli finds himself at the center of an epic undersea fantasy war which puts the entire world at risk.  These collections are available via Diamond and any retailer wanting to build up a kid-friendly section of their store should give them a try.
