Kingdom Bum is a story of sadness, betrayal, friendship and rebirth. This story follows a group of bums in a city that cares nothing about them. The bums are being ruled by the axe, and must bend to his will. If not, they can expect to have their thumbs lopped off. Many think that an iron fist is the only way to rule, but a young idealist named Simon has other ideas.
Kingdom Bum is a very exciting book. Upon reading it, I was a bit thrown off by the art style. However, I continued to read it and grew to like the style. Reed has a very distinct style. Though it may not be what people would normally like, it is dynamic and complete. Hickman’s colors are well done. Some parts of the drawings can be a bit much, like the bulging eyes The story itself is great. Wollet and Marshall know how to keep an audience entertained. Just when you think that all is well in the story, a surprise comes at you.
It is unclear whether or not the story is going to follow a certain character, or if it will continue to show what is happening with each character. I wouldn’t mind either way because it wouldn’t take anything away from the book.
