Bandette 2 Review – Stealing your wallet and your heart with a smile
Bandette 2 Review Short Version: Bandette 2 is a delightful read, following the carefree thief as she tries to foil a bank robbery by… Letting the thieves go? Still, at the end of the issue, things take a serious turn when the criminal community tires of Bandette’s meddling. I doubt she will be impressed by their efforts.
Bandette 2 Writer: Paul Tobin
Bandette 2 Artist: Colleen Coover
Is there a more charming comic book on the market than Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover’s Bandette? Somehow I doubt it. In Bandette 2, the eponymous thief/heroine is faced with a bank heist that she must foil at the bequest of the police chief. Bandette‘s tone is so consistently entertaining, so unerringly lighthearted that I fidn it impossible to not be absolutely enraptured with the series. Beyond that, Coover’s art really adds such an air of whimsy and artistry to the whole thing. If it sounds like I’m gushing, it is only because I am. Bandette is the sort of heroine that you enjoy watching succeed. She is delightful precisely because she seems to lack any grasp of the extent of her own competence and the impossibility of the tasks that she is faced with. Still, at the end of Bandette 2, it seems that the bad guys in town are sick of Bandette’s meddling and are looking to eliminate her from the picture entirely. Honestly, I can’t think of a reason for you to not take a look at Bandette. The book only costs $.99 from ComiXology and is so charming, so utterly disarming that I have a hard time believing there are many people that would not be enraptured by Tobin and Coover’s creation.
