Sonic the Hedgehog Disney Lumberjanes All-Ages or Small-Ages?
As teenage protagonists so often are, there’s an innate arrogance to his actions and speech patterns that demonstrate how confident he is in his abilities. While this can so often grate on older audiences, it’s very easy to see past all of this bravado to the damaged and scared child below. Bringing in regular flashbacks and morsels of information, Monroe allows you to quickly piece together who he used to be before all of this drama began and you quickly develop a rapport. Adam is your archetypal orphan with an under-appreciated talent, but seeing everything that he’s capable of allows you to discard your misgivings; watching pure and awesome skill unfold will never stop being entertaining.
One of the best things that a series with a mystery at its core can do is make you feel smart as you read it, without having to explicitly spell it all out for you. You could very easily read this miniseries as a pre-teen, use the protagonist as a vessel of escapism and have a merry old time. I keep coming back to this miniseries as one of my favourites due to all of the little details that are included in both the narrative and the art; something that you might miss the first time through will pop out the next time around thanks to you acquiring a wider context for the situation. There’s a very minor plot point surrounding a stolen watch that appears in the very first scene, but travels between characters as a display of their power over the current situation.
There's an unstable quality to Evy that puts her firmly onto the negative end of the moral spectrum. The way that Navarro draws her, she always has this rictus grin that posits that you don't have all of the information; she has the upper hand in each situation and she knows it. It adds another layer to what might otherwise be a straightforward antagonistic relationship as you're constantly attempting to second-guess who's going to come out on top. The art plays this up beautifully and prevents any of that cartoonish black-and-white morality from gaining any traction.
