Bad Island - Doug TenNapel

I actually read some of his work before, and I think I have the same problems with this one, and that is the characters are only developed on the superficial level. To make matters worse, I feel that this superficiality could easily be rectified with maybe just a couple of additional pages. Anyway, the main storyline is about a family on vacation that gets shipwrecked on an island and they must come together as a family in order to survive the strange and mysterious forces that haunt the island. No, this is not an episode of Lost, although with the jumps in time it might as well be. The art is cute and the story is not necessarily bad, but there's not enough here to move me. bad island
