It’s Tuesday which means it’s time for Crossroads Comics!
This week we’re taking a look at PMD: Stars Above by Cloudpool. By now we all know the drill, it’s the story of a human turned pokémon who has lost all their memories. This time our hero takes the form of a Glameow, a human with no memories except for that she was once a human and that she remembers a few things like type match ups. Everything else, including everything from her name to ice cream has been lost. Rescued from the dungeon she first woke up in, Cleo is determined to figure out what’s going on, so she joins forces with Hollis the Electrike and Azura the female Nidoran to form Team Stars.
This comic stood out to me in my recommendations due to its very cute art style. I actually quite like how in more recent pages, the author has stated they will actually be switching up styles depending on if we’re in reality or in a dream sequence. I think that’s a really nice touch to the setting and I hope to see it used more in the future since it’s very reminiscent, to me, of the dream sequences from the original Red and Blue Rescue Team games. Cleo is also a very fun and jolly protagonist to follow, as despite having seemingly no knowledge of battling, she seems quite enthusiastic and confident about her abilities. We will just have to see how that turns out in the future.
So be sure to check out this comic and Cloudpool on Smackjeeves!
