Farlaine the Goblin Book 7: The Final Land

   With this issue we bid a sad farewell to Farlaine the Goblin, whose search for a home finally reaches its end in this, the final chapter in his story (at least so far).

   This has been a terrific series as the title character visits strange new lands (which reminds me a bit of the classic Hot Stuff comics), he's taken part in adventures that require him to use his plant-growing skills, cleverness and good sense to survive (which reminds me of the great Uncle Scrooge stories), and he's made some amazing friends along the way, all while looking out for his dear friend Ehrenwort (who happens to be a plant) - and over it all rides a positive, upbeat, optimistic spirit, which we don't see enough of in comics today.

   Written and drawn by Pug Grumble, this is a wonderful story for readers of all ages, charged with imagination and a can-do spirit.

   Highly recommended!

Grade: A
