The story in this ashcan-sized comic is complete. It follows the misadventures of two young kids, John and Cori. They receive a big box of powdered monkeys from a mail order company and rather than follow the instructions to the letter they add too much water and end up with a giant monkey. So how do they stop the giant monkey? Getting it to eat a giant banana shaped sponge to soak up all the water seems like a good idea. I dont want to give away the ending so Ill stop here but you get the idea. John & Cori is a wacky, all-ages comic.
And its also a well done, amusing little romp. The art is cartoony and nicely polished. If youd like to read this issue in its entirety you can hoof it on over to their web site at www.panel1.com/abdo [alas, it's a dead link now] where youll find a copy on-line.
Issue #1 was supposed to have hit stores in October but I dont recall seeing it and their web site hasnt been updated so maybe the issue is delayed. Heres their address for more information: Abdo Entertainment, P.O. Box 422, Napanee, Ontario K7R 3P5, Canada.
