4 out of 5 stars on GoodReads

Wax is determined to be the best DJ in the world, but when his mixes accidentally answer an interstellar challenge, he’ll have to be the best DJ in the universe to protect his family and friends from the robots of Discotopia, where he fights against the evil King using the ancient art of Sci-Fu, a martial art that uses sound waves as weapons.

I’m not much of a fan of rap music, but I am a musician, so I was more than intrigued about a comic that uses music to fight off alien robots! I loved all the rhyming and rhythm. I could almost hear the music in my head as I was reading the book!
The plot surprised me and kept me guessing with lots of great twists. The dialogue is snappy and kept me laughing. The characters have some great development, and I loved seeing how they each interact with each other, building trust and working together to protect their planet.

The illustrations are full of vibrant colors and it gives a very energetic feel to the panels. The fight scenes are wonderfully put together, and the action is clear and interesting.

The world of Discotopia is imaginative and playful. Even though the battles are serious, and we feel the suspense of everything being at stake for our characters, there is also such amusing humor too, so that it never feels too heavy.

A delightful read!
