Graphic Novel Review: Gustav and Henri

Gustav & Henri by Andy   Matthews

Gustav & Henri (Vol. 1)
by Andy Matthews, Peader Thomas (Illustrator)

5 out of 5 stars

Gustav and Henri are playing when they lose their shuttlecock. It must have been thrown into outerspace! They construct a space ship and track their shuttlecock to the moon. But a greedy space crab has claimed the shuttlecock as a crown, calling himself King of the Moon. The two friends will have to complete four impossible tasks to reclaim the shuttlecock.

When Gustav forgets to return a library book, the two friends travel back in time to return the book with terrible consequences when they are attacked by “clock-o-dials” in the time stream.

Gustav wants to celebrate Pig Day with a wonderful cake. All Henri’s enemies are invited to watch her eat the cake, and none of them will get a slice! But the cake disappears and Gustav must become a detective to discover the culprit.

This graphic novel/ comic is so hilarious! I love the funny jokes and crazy plot lines. It had me giggling and laughing all the way through.

The art style is really cute, and it adds to the comedy of the story. Everything is in gray, white, and blue. I like the way the blue colors are used to bring shadows and light into the art.
