Tomica strips 1-16 review

Tomica strips 1-16 by David Covas Lourenco and Deon de Lange Review

The titular Tomica must break into a base. As the enemy prepares to fire on him, questions arise: just who is Tomica? What are his motives? A science fiction epic is about to unfold!

Tomica, a South African webcomic, is at the very least very, very well drawn. At this point there are a lot of questions about the origins of the protagonist and I’m curious to see where the story will go. As it is a comic strip that seems to be geared toward a younger audience it seems to be a tad more focused on comedy but only slightly so.

The series visually reminded me of Nausicaa in some regards which I really enjoyed. As said above, the artwork is really gorgeous. A lot of effort was clearly put into this work and it shows. If you’re looking for something a little off the beaten path I highly recommending checking this out even if there’s a lot of questions in my mind about it.

Tomica is available digitally from UO Comics with a print release in the works.
