Given to a new artist :( 19 Feb. 2012
By Liddell - Published on
Format: Paperback
I picked it up today without even opening it. I was so happy to see it on the shelf. I literally squealed. I have been snooping about looking for info on it for a while, There's not been much. I love Naifeh's art so much and I've introduced countless people to Crumrin and Polly. I could not wait, so I went right to the coffee house next door and got a coffee and sat down and opened it. I was sooo so disappointed to see Polly looking like a cross-eyes floozy and lighting that my eyes strain to interpret. And then it clicked. It's not Naifeh's art! I feel totally jipped. It's like when they just recast new actors and get a new director -but keep the same writer- in a sequel to a movie you love. So much of the charm of the first one was in the visual aspect, and it's really hard to warm up to the new constantly pouting, doe-eyed Polly. Boooo!

Arrr....the pirates return! 9 Feb. 2012
By Kat Lyn - Published on
Format: Paperback
(Originally rated on Goodreads) *SPOILERS*
Another thrilling installment centered around the new pirate queen of the seas (and also the sky here). I do miss Naifeh's style a bit and had to take time to recognize the past characters. But the new style does give more individual characteristics/nuances to the pirate crew now. It kinda grows on you. I found it great fun to go back, and see how Polly brings the crew together again to help thwart an enemy takeover. I had some irks with when they stopped the new baddie. They then had to go through a lot of politics, which may have gone over the head of younger viewers. I'm also perplexed as to whether Polly Pringle's dad (who may be the Red Poppy) is the one who gave her the poppy note. Only because the silhouette shown seemed to make me think of a past character (a certain pirate king's son). Then again it could be red herring to surprise the readers. But I found it cute that Polly may now have another admirer next door at the story's end.

Makes my heart hurt 9 Mar. 2012
By Siobhan - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was so excited when I found this book. I've been waiting and hoping for it for so long. I opened it and instantly saw that Polly had a Derp face. She wasn't the same at all. She wasn't even pretty. I couldn't get over it. I'm not happy that they chose a different artist for this book. I like the original style far better and am only giving it 2 stars because I love Ted Naifeh's writing. I just wish that he had chosen to draw it too. I won't be buying more of the comics drawn by Robbi Rodriguez. He doesn't do the story justice at all and I just can't get into the book with Polly's derp face everywhere. I'm sorry it's just not good enough.

Meh 4 Feb. 2014
By Bethany Poston - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved the first vol, so i was hoping for more of the same. But for some reason this vol didn't click with me. It might have been the drawing style (which i normally don't have a problem with) or it could have been the story. But Mystery of the Dragonfish is totally lackluster compared to the first volume.

unfortunately, a let-down 27 Aug. 2012
By Hope I. Help - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 10-year-old daughter, a lover of graphic fiction and a huge reader of book series, adored the first POLLY & THE PIRATES. She was craving more, and so I purchased this despite the reviews. Oh well. She, too, was disappointed by the change in style and tone.
