Preview/Review: Bee and Puppycat #2: Magically Charming

Bee and Puppycat #2 begins with a discussion about sleep, pajamas, and some of the more mundane points of being human between Temp-Bot and Bee, who admits she’s not so great at the human gig. Fortunately, Temp-Bot quickly gives her something she can handle: she and Puppycat must fix a broken music box on “Snow Globe Planet.”

There are no earth-shattering plot twists in Bee and Puppycat, but I found myself charmed anyway. They obviously live in a magical world where holes open up between planets, where “puppycats” exist and talk back, and where robots are intrigued by what being human means. The drawings are simple but cute, and I loved Puppycat’s attitude. I also felt using QR Codes so that the reader could listen to some of the music boxes in the house was a nice touch and really innovative. I’m not sure if future issues will add to this story (and perhaps solve the mystery of why all the music boxes told sad bedtime stories?) or if each is meant to be a standalone, but either way, I’m intrigued enough to want to read future Bee and Puppycat issues and tuning in to see how the animated cartoon ties in with the comics.

I give it 4 out of 5 Lightning Bolts.

About Author

Julie Hegner has been descending the geek rabbit hole since she watched her first episode of Star Trek at age eight. A longtime fan of Trek, Who, X-Files, and the Whedonverse, it was only a matter of time until hanging out with other geek girls and repeatedly watching Tom Hiddleston led her to the awesomeness of comics. She takes a special joy in reading about ladies who kick ass, but in general anything with a good storyline floats her boat. You can tweet @julz91 on Twitter.

  2. This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a
    reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!

  3. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    However think about if you added some great images or video clips to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics
    and video clips, this site could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
    Very good blog!
