    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 ...

    So much fun. The best parts of Tin Tin and James Bond, but, y'know, with talking animals. ...

    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 cliffhang...

    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 att...

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

    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...

    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 defin...

    This is a spy story done in Tintin style but with animals. The art is very reminiscent of Hergé. That?s good praise, but the story is fairly uninspired. It?s probably only 1.5 stars, but I rounded up because of the style, which I enjoyed a lot. Unless you?re big Tint...

    Mildly interesting, but the blasé cliché spy character brings nothing fresh to the genre. This feels like ?spy satire? but isn?t. ...

    A great throwback to the great Belgian comics of the 30?s and 40?s. Has kind of a Wes Andersony vibe thrown in. As a huge Tintin fan, can?t wait for more. ...

    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 sex...

    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 ...

    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 t...

    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. ...

    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 cha...

    *Galley received from Image* 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. ...
