Lions, Tigers and Bears (Issue 4)
By Mike Bullock and Jack Lawrence
Published by Image Comics

Review by Kathryn Ramage

This fourth issue of the childrenís comics series continues the adventures of a little boy named Joey and his feline friends, and concludes the first phase of their story.

Previous issues of Lions, Tigers and Bears introduce the set up: one night, Joey is drawn into a magical world where his stuffed animals--Pallo the lion, Minerva the black panther, and two tigers (one orange, one white), named Venus and Ares--become huge jungle cats who do battle against grotesque ape-like ogres called the Beasties who are threatening the animalís world. The Beastiesí nefarious deeds also include the kidnapping of a little girl named Courtney.

At the end of issue 3, Joey and the big cats attempt to rescue Courtney, but things have gone wrong. The cats need rescuing too before the adventure is at an end, and in this issue, itís up to Joey to find his bravery and use his imagination to save both them and Courtney.

The graphics are dramatic, with vivid colors on a black background. The cover art is especially striking. The story maybe be a little scary, but not too scary, for small children, and contains a not-too-terribly preachy lesson or two about growing up. There are also some cute hints of future romance between the two children--even though Joey is still in the Ďgirls-are-ickyí stage--and darker hints that the Beasties havenít finished with them yet.

Iím looking forward to what happens to Joey and the big cats next.

See for my review of Issues 1-3.
