“From the crazy creators of Sumerian’s Paranormal Hitmen (now in development as a TV series by eOne) comes the wacky new all-ages series Toy! Follow the adventures of Rockledge’s greatest inventor, Toy, as he and his pals deal with the evil Lily Buttercup and her gang of goons. In this action-packed first issue, Lily Buttercup terrorizes the town with her new ginormous mechsuit. Will Toy be able to stop this evil kitty before she destroys his beloved town? Or, will this kitty have executed the purrrfect plan?”

Do you remember that feeling you got watching cartoons in the 90s? Watching a story that was fun and sometimes epic, but no matter what reset itself by the next episode like Ren and Stimpy? Well, Toy has that exact same vibe. It is an all-ages comic that has plenty for adult readers to enjoy as well, especially if you were a fan of 90s cartoons.

Brett Murphy brings all kinds of humor into this story, from fart jokes for kids to nuanced jokes about corporations for adults. I absolutely enjoyed reading this issue and the whole cartoonish vibe of it. The villainous characters are hilariously named and give the comic a fun level of silliness.

Wilson Gandolpho’s artwork is as excellent as always, but in a whole new style that we did not get from his art in Paranormal Hitmen and Kingdom Come Deliverance. He is able to showcase his range of skills in this comic, bringing that 90s cartoon nostalgia onto the page. The way the comic flows it truly feels like watching Saturday morning cartoons again.

If you’re looking for a fun book to read with your kids or if you are itching for some nostalgia, you don’t want to miss Toy from Keenspot entertainment!

Toy #1 is on FOC 2/13/23 and releases in March 2023!
