Maxwell’s Mini Reviews Swag Patrol# 1

I’m back and while I was gone I got to read a number of comics. One of those comics was “Swag Patrol” and while skeptical at first I decided to give it a shot. It’s the story of the Rashad, Maya and Chris, a trio of friends doused with a chemical concoction one day, while playing around in a high school chem lab. During the night each of them awake to find that they have been endowed with extraordinary powers. With the help of their science teacher Dr. Tre they struggle to understand their abilities and try to make a difference in the world.

 Story hopes to convey a positive message.

-        Characters lack depth
-        Dialogue is laden with Exposition and Cliche
-        Scenes that are meant to expound on characters seem trite. Also things that are supposed to be character development are used as plot device.
-        Spelling errors throughout.

Rating: 1.5/5
