The Angry Birds comics are based on the popular mobile game. All of the characters are featured from the games. It was fun to discover each of the different type of birds have their own personalities. They story is simple and great for younger readers who are also fans of the games.
The artwork resembles the little comic strips that pop up in the game in between levels. The layout is easy to follow with its basic square panels; this makes it ideal for younger readers. The bottoms of the pages have a Christmas themed picture that can be a bit distracting at first. Assuming it’s there to give the feeling that someone is telling the story and to help set the theme.
