Spy Seal, Vol. 1: The Corten-Steel Phoenix Reviews

  • Theediscerning

    Three and a half stars. This is a fairly enjoyable romp, with a naive spy dumped into the deep end of solving international espionage cases. The story seemed to jump about wildly near the end, which is too sudden and clearly set up for sequels - although as the hawk is as drop-dead sexy as the seal hero says, that may be no bad thing. (And if that sentence never sounded like making sense to you, this may not be a book to your taste.)

  • Zack! Empire

    I really enjoyed this! The artwork and the color is so great. The story is a bit silly, but it's a great way to spend a half hour.

    I'm really happy that Image Comics decided to publish this in the European Album sized format. It goes great with the story and art style.

    I would definitely pick up a second volume.

    Rich Tomasso’s “Spy Seal” is an homage to Tintin comics that is pretty to look at but doesn’t quite work on a character level.

    The main character is learning to become a spy and works with a ton of new animals throughout the book. His relationships with the multitude of characters introduced is confusing. He has adventures, but there is no double-cross, no reveal, or any other plot point that makes this a great spy story.

    The art is fantastic. I could look at the smooth linework and rich color palette all day long.

    I’m eager to see where this book goes from here.

  • Ricky Vigil

    The art is fantastic! The linework is very clean, the color palette is perfectly selected, and I love the general style Tommaso's anthropomorphized characters.

    As other reviews have stated, the narrative is somewhat choppy in parts--there are a few moments in the book that I thought would be explained in later pages, but they never are--and the characters have very little depth. Still, I'm invested enough to give this series one more shot.

  • Nicola Mansfield

    Just one look at the cover tells you how Herge-esque the art is in this book. A spy story set during the cold war with all the characters being animals. Malcolm is a seal and the newest MI-6 recruit; this is his first mission. Entertaining juvenalia which while not exciting held my attention.

  • Rumi Vd

    nice short spy story in the style of the Herge Tintin comics, with some very nice humor like a Wes Anderson movie, also its pretty damn cool that Rich Tommasso did everything on this book, the colors the lettering, the story. everything. really dig that.

  • Ben

    An anthropomorphic seal becomes a spy in an unmistakably Tintin-esque adventure. I would probably give another volume in this series a chance, but it didn't blow me away. The art is great and very "Hergé", and the concept itself is interesting. The execution was just OK, the plot was average, and the overall effect, for me, was a wistful pining for an actual Tintin escapade that I've probably read 30 times over.

  • Donovan

    Mildly interesting, but the blasé cliché spy character brings nothing fresh to the genre. This feels like “spy satire” but isn’t.

  • Alex Sarll

    Yes, it does exactly what it says on the tin; a seal who's a spy, albeit not a very good one as yet (for reasons unrelated to being a seal). Tommaso here resurrected a character he's been doodling for many years, to general acclaim; I have my usual disconnect from comics set in a world recognisable as ours, realistic enough to have not just revolutionaries but tankies, yet inhabited by anthropomorphic animals. Still, the Tintin-styled art (and plot, for that matter) do make for some lovely lands
