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.)

  • Simon

    God bless Rich Tommaso and his insane, passionate pursuit to cover every single freaking genre out there. Sometimes all in one book (She-Wolf), sometimes separately, like in this spy spoof/homage/whatever this is. It's fun enough and the art is great, so if you're not yet fed up with the secret agent fare, check it out.

  • Sean Kottke

    This is a pure delight. It carves out a lovely aesthetic space between Tintin, Blacksad, James Bond, Wes Anderson films, and Sally Cruikshank cartoons. There are a couple of places where it feels like a page or a few panels are missing to initiate changes in scene and resolve cliffhangers. I look forward to following more Spy Seal adventures. As a comic written and illustrated by the same person, this fulfills one more plank of the Read Harder 2018 challenge.

  • Andy Grabia

    Story took some odd leaps that made me feel like pages were missing from the book. Too bad, as it was otherwise quite enjoyable.

    Objectively, I feel like this wasn't a great comic. However, it operates with enough ridiculous, self-aware flair that I found myself enjoying the experience anyway.

  • Blaine McGaffigan

    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 p

    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.

  • 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
