Synopsis: Way back in the swinging ‘70s, movie producer Sol Schick was the guy behind such cheesy classics as “Quarry: Bigfoot!,” Noah’s Ark: Found at Last!” and “Heavenly Visitors from the Hell Above.” But when he’s murdered – at a film festival! – with a piece of Noah’s Ark! – THE LIBRARIANS are drawn into the mystery.
Review: As a fan of the television series. I was looking forward to this and I’d say that my excitement was justified.
Writer Will Pfeifer has picked up the individual character voices up really well and seems to have done a great job of getting a handle on the fun banter that we often see played out in the TNT television series.
When legendary film director Sol Schick is murdered in plain sight by his long time friend. The librarians spring into action and begin an investigation that takes them on a merry old chase.
The opening few pages of Flynn, Cassandra, and Baird watching a Sol Schick movie were a lot of fun. Especially given that Flynn was getting a hard time off of Baird about his choice in movies.
The real fun starts when all the Librarian’s come together at their base of operations to discuss events.
Much of the second half of the book pairs Cassandra and Ezekiel up to question Orville the narrator on most of Schick’s movies and the guy that stabbed him.
The final page of this first issue leaves things with a cliffhanger that will have fans drooling with anticipation for the second issue.
The art work by Rodney Buchemi works out pretty well. He captures the likenesses of the main characters well and he has lots of fun with Ezekiel Jones in particular.
I also enjoyed the fact that the writer used a B-Movie film director and a mystery concerning Noah’s ark as the means for the first comic book adventures.
Looking forward to the second issue. Highly recommended to fans of the TV show. Well worth a look.
