FINAL THOUGHTS

This is a delightful issue and a perfect way to enjoy more of the adventures of Rapunzel until the premiere of Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventure. The colours are vibrant, the charm of the television show is captured with each pencil stroke through expressions and character movement. IDW and Disney continues to enchant many with their comic book adaptations of their television shows. It makes me more eager to see the upcoming Big Hero 6 comic in July.

Tangled the Series #2 is an enjoyable read for all ages, the colour and character expressions are more than enough to guarantee multiple re-reads in your family.

 

RATING : 8 out of 10
