However, despite the wordy nature of the comic, it is delightful. Whitley writes an incredibly likable Wisp. Additionally, Williams’ art adds a lot of whimsy to the story with its cartoonish design. In a book called Rainbow Brite, color is very important. While a lot of this issue had to rely on grays, the end panels are beautifully colored and drawn. Pinto’s coloring within the last three pages of the book elevates the book entirely. The last pages smartly feature little dialogue and instead focus on Wisp’s expressions and transformation. Overall, I highly recommend this book for someone looking for a lighter read as well as fans of Rainbow Brite both new and old.
Rainbow Brite #2 is available at comic stores everywhere.
