    One thought on “Fantasy Sports 2: The Bandit of Barbel Bay”

    1. * I was sent this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review *Another pleasant surprise as this book is one which I found both enjoyable and fast-paced. I think that this series is slightly silly, but in a great way. It combines fantasy worlds and adventures with sporting activities to solve problems. Definitely a series I think children would really like, and one I find myself more drawn to each volume! 3.5*s

    2. This entire series is incredible. Bosma's pacing and visuals have floored me in both books, and the weird, goofy sense of humor throughout makes the story a delight. Read it!

    3. I loved Fantasy Sports back when it was just a tiny little black-and-white comic called Fantasy Basketball. Loved it more when it got expanded (in every sense) into the first volume of Fantasy Sports. And now that I've read volume two, I can happily say that the series hasn't lost one bit of the joy that it started with. And beyond only wanting to see more of a good thing, as of this volume I'm just as invested in the developing story lurking under the surface of it all, too.Now I don't give a c [...]

    4. This series is about as close as I'll ever come to willingly reading about sports, and I enjoy it immensely. A fun world for stories, and the artwork makes both aspects of the series title vivid and entertaining.

    5. I always love how lush and colorful Bosma's art is in his comics! It's neat to learn a bit more about the worldbuilding as well, and I look forward to reading the next book.

    6. This series is fantastic. The first book pitted Wiz and her blustering mage-partner Mug against a necromancer in a fast-paced game of basketball. This second book starts a little slower, with some backstory about how Wiz was discovered by the mage organization. But before the end her and Mug are competing in another magical sports competition- beach volleyball against a set of sea-god champions. Sam Bosma also works as an artist on the show Steven Universe, and the art in this book shares a very [...]

    7. No, this series just isn't doing anything for me. This time, Mug and Whiz show up on an amphibian/fish people inhabited island. Their treasure is stolen and added to the Big Clam. Only way to get it back is to win the tournament. Volleyball this time. All the volleyball action scenes are just plain boring for me who has no interests in sports. I do like the art, though; there are two new characters who look very similar to Dragon Ball-style people. I won't read any more of this series as it isn' [...]

    8. yoooooo!-WIZ BACKSTORY yo! Wiz's parents! yo!!!! tiny Wiz with huge eyes and Huge Determination!!! yo yo yo-WORLDBUILDING-a town with a lot of fishes. fishy. (very spongebob, in a good way)-volleyball match against two siblings(?). one is cool, the other poses a lot (and seems to also probably be cool)-(whispered) wiz backstory and worldbuilding !!!I wasn't expecting this series to grow a 4realz plot but it's happening!! fantasy sports 3 will be GOLF? good and great. I will be back with another [...]

    9. Excellent follow-up to the first Fantasy Sports series. Charming book featuring a young female mage named Wiz and her bruiser wizard co-hort Mug as they must enter a volleyball tournament to win back their stolen gold. The concept of sports and magic adventure sounds strange, but the combination is a winner full of heart and wonderful illustrations as well.

    10. I am not a sports fan, so I'm always pleasantly surprised when I come across a movie or graphic novel with a sports theme that actually manages to draw me in. This volume sustains the energy of the first while throwing in a little intrigue that makes the hero start questioning her chosen mission in life. Looking forward to No. 3.

    11. I liked this so much better than the first one! Maybe it was all the awesome fish people. The humor really hit well, I liked the conflict between the wizards as they think they are and the evidence of wizards not acting so nicely. Looking forward to 3.

    12. I really love this series! Bosma creates a world full of all the things I love. Sports! Fantasy! World building! A world where everything isn't black and white! Recommended for anyone who loves comics.

    13. Cute, fast read. Builds on the first volume nicely and ends with a question that leaves you wanting the next volume. I liked the art style a lot. This was definitely a nice surprise and better than the first volume.

    14. Another fantastic Nobrow publication from Sam Bosma. A shift from basketball to volleyball, but with all of the detail, humor, and fantastical elements intact. May this series live long.

    15. aaaaaaaaaaaa! Deepening plot, fun creature people, betrayal, and beach volleyball! I really like where this series is going.

    16. As always, Sam Bosma is incredible. His work is charming, and his worlds have such personality! Fantasy Sports continues to impress.
