Graphic Novel Review: Mighty Jack and the Goblin King

Mighty Jack and the Goblin King by Ben Hatke

Synopsis:
Like a bolt from the blue, Jack’s little sister Maddy is gone―carried into another realm by an ogre.

When Jack and Lilly follow Maddy’s captor through the portal, they are ready for anything . . . except what they find waiting for them in the floating crossroads between worlds. Even the power of their magic plants may not be enough to get them back to earth alive.

Alone and injured, Jack and Lilly must each face their own monsters―as well as giants who grind the bones of human children to feed their “beast” and a fearsome goblin king in the sewers down below.

But when Jack finds himself in a tough spot, help comes from the most unlikely person: the goblin king!

Review:
Jack and Lilly enter a land of goblins and ogres to rescue Maddy. But these scary looking creatures are not all what they seem.

This middle-grade graphic novel is a fantastic conclusion to this different take on Jack and the Beanstalk. The artwork is quirky and fun. The adventure is full of danger, suspense, and humor. And Lilly is a strong female lead that young girls will love. Hatke’s stories are always entertaining. And the story ends with a cute twist that fans will appreciate.
