Matthew's Rockin' World Superstars, written by Matthew W. Reese, is a comic book that narrates the adventures of the main protagonist, M Kool, with his roommate, J Epic. Traveling through portals to other worlds, the two of them encounter several obstacles, including angry villains, beasts, and even godlike creatures.
To overcome the obstacles, they must join forces with their friends, but that may not be enough to secure victory. However, M Kool and J Epic have a secret weapon that will rock everyone’s world. What is this weapon I am talking about? You have to read the book to find out.
All in all, I had a lot of fun reading Matthew's Rockin' World Superstars, as the storyline was entertaining. Indeed, I devoured the book in one sitting and was left wanting more. Featuring time travel, futuristic technology, and superpowers, the book also made for a rather thrilling read. I hope the author creates a book series, as I will definitely love to read more.
Further, I thoroughly enjoyed the humor included in Matthew's Rockin' World Superstars. In my opinion, humor was the best part of the book, as I love to laugh. It also increased the fun factor and made it a quick read. As they say, time flies when you are having fun.
The one thing that I liked most about the book was the sudden twists and turns in the plot. Truly, it is an understatement when I say that it was wildly unpredictable. Furthermore, I believe it is easy to predict a book’s storyline when it presents a hero versus villain scenario; however, Reese did a fantastic job with the storyline and managed to surprise me throughout. Indeed, every single time I thought I had the plot figured out, something unexpected always happened.
Evidently, I cannot review a comic book without commenting on its illustrations, which were superb by the way. Reese, the multitalented author and illustrator, created scenes and characters that narrated the story far beyond the words on the pages. By just looking at the characters' facial expressions and body gestures, I could easily predict what was happening in a scene without reading the words.
Considering the above points, I rate Matthew's Rockin' World Superstars 4 out of 4 stars. I found nothing to dislike about it. Also, I believe it was exceptionally edited, as I found no errors in it. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading comic books. However, I do not think it is suitable for anyone below the age of eighteen, as it contains strong profane words. Lastly, there were some ideas about false gods that I think devout Christians or religious people may not like.
