'Fiji Random' by Justin Raimey is a collection of webcomics. There is an overall story with some breaks for intermission stories and some four panel comics. It's all explained a few pages in by a couple of the main characters.
Fiji has problems like getting to school on time and being attacked by little pirates. There is also the news that there is a new exchange student that will be living in her house. To top it off, she has a mean teacher that likes to flunk students at the drop of a hat.
The art is cute enough, but seems a little rough still for a book. The strips and gags kind of feel like they should be in a high school newspaper, although some of the humor is a little off color and strange for such cute characters. Some of the spelling was wrong, and that really bothered me. To top it off, the main story didn't flow well, and with all the four panel breaks and intermission breaks, it took a while to get back into the story. It really wasn't for me. It might be best to find the comic and characters online and see if you like them. If you do, then your mileage may vary and you may like this more than I did.
I was given a review copy of this graphic novel by Black Streak Entertainment and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
