Sadly, I have finished the last of Matthew Loux’s Salt Water Taffy: The Seaside Adventures of Jack and Benny graphic novels; I could happily read 5 more just like them, but it doesn’t seem like I’ll be given the chance.
Still, you should read them. Caldera’s Revenge: Part 2 resolves Part 1‘s cliffhanger nicely, although the wrap-up is perhaps on the speedy side. With a ghost whaling ship, a cranky albatross, and fermented whale blubber, how can you go wrong? Sunny the young giant squid and Caldera, a whale of monstrous proportions (and temper!), have impressively drawn personalities, I have to say–even if I still don’t love the way Loux does hands. (It bothered me again in this one, albeit briefly.) I wouldn’t vote this best in the series, but it’s not a disappointment, either. What IS a disappointment is that some of these are out of print; I did, however, manage to buy used copies of all of them. Seek them out at your library today!
