'Doodle Jump' is a graphic novel based on a video game. I've not played the game but the comic based on it isn't too bad.
The comic opens with Doodler in a strange winter world being chased by killer penguins. He finds a new friend named Stripanza Von Spackle, or Triple for short. Triple is the kind of overconfident friend who will either get you out of or into danger. Doodle is good at jumping, but not so good at walking. The two find themselves on a quest to figure out where all the little black holes are coming from. Along the way they meet more enemies and a few people who want to help them out. The enemies outnumber the friends, but Doodle and Triple find out they are all they need.
The art is a bit crude, but very much in keeping with the game art I've seen online. The story feels a bit like a video game with different levels and quests. I like the interaction between Doodle and Triple and feel like this book is completely appropriate for fans of the game and younger readers. I actually enjoyed reading it.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, Dynamite Entertainment, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
