A Madonna comic book? Sounds great! However, as this title shows, things aren't always as good as they seem! Take Madonna 50 plus years and shrinking it down to a single comic book is no easy task. CW Cooke, the author of this title, does well to hit on every Madonna milestone in her life and career. From her early days in NYC to her current hommage to Mia Farrow, every base is covered. The problem is the writing is weak. And like the Martha Stewart title in this series, is a bit cheesy and awkward. The art, while solid, can be a bit confusing in places and Madonna never really looks like Madonna. Mike J.C.'s work is very soft and round, Madonna's natural structure is very jagged and sharp. So aside from a beauty mark and the iconic images of Madonna--the similarity ends there.
The cover is gorgeous and any Madonna fan would surely enjoy this light, quick read. It's nice to see this titles continue to get published and hopefully more titles will continue to hit shelves!
