Empecé con el primer número de la compilación cuando lo encontré gratis en la app de Comixology, y acabé comprando el primer libro.

Hace años que no leo o releo cómics que no sean los de siempre de Marvel, pero este me ha parecido curioso, y me ha recordado un poco a unos dibujos animados de mi infancia, con un toque de reflexión tras unos muñecos que a primera vista parecían algo más infantil.

Probablemente siga con la serie para ver cómo se desarrolla la historia. ( )

The boogey man steals the toys boy out of his bedroom. The toys go into the closet to save him. I love the way the characters became more real in the dark. I loved the drawing style and the toys were so easy to love, even when they weren't the most lovable characters. Much like toy story movies a lot of time is spent dealing with the fact that boys grow up and stop playing with toys. It adds a major element of sadness and really makes the toys motives a major part of the story. ( )

Gr 5 Up-Most children can remember losing a favorite toy, but what happens when a group of favorite toys lose their boy? The Colonel and his hastily assembled team of rescuers enter "the Dark"-the mysterious world inside a closet, embarking on a mission to save the child. Once inside, they are up against the nearly unstoppable Boogeyman, a creature made from nightmares who has his own designs on the boy. After a trip to the city of Hopscotch, where life is nothing but a game, the toys are branded "rule breakers" and forced into a game they may not be able to win. This eerie graphic novel, set in a quiet Brooklyn home in 1944, uses muted sepia tones and realistic artwork to present the unimaginable world the protagonists are thrust into. From the insane Jester's murderous glee to Max the Bear's raging ferocity, readers can see every emotion on the characters' faces. It almost feels like a children's story gone horribly wrong in the most wonderful way. The images of battles and violence are definitely not for the timid.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345521005, Paperback)

 
The year is 1944. As Allied forces fight the enemy on Europe’s war-torn beaches, another battle begins in a child’s bedroom in Brooklyn. When the nightmarish Boogeyman snatches a boy and takes him to the realm of the Dark, the child’s playthings, led by the toy soldier known as the Colonel, band together to stage a daring rescue. On their perilous mission they will confront the boy’s bitter and forgotten toys, as well as betrayal in their own ranks. Can they save the boy from the forces of evil, or will they all perish in the process? The Stuff of Legend is a haunting and ultimately redemptive tale of loyalty, camaraderie, and perseverance.

This edition includes a brand-new story featuring the Colonel’s war journal, maps, sketches, and other original material!
