Alec Longstreth’s children comics Isle of Elsi is a wonderful charming work. Full of word plays, puns and alliterations, Isle of Elsi is the tale of Rex and Sally, two kids who go on adventure in their village of Egalliv. I appreciate a good pun and being a father must have scrambled my brain into thinking all word plays are amazing, but this comic was a riveting experience. There are so many quips and funny moments, I couldn’t help but smile while reading it. I thought it was also a good way to showcase that Alec is also doing a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to publish a collected edition of Isle of Elsi. I wish him.
