I’ve come to expect a great deal from Aaron Blabey’s Bad Guys series while reading the first three books. They were really well illustrated, simplistically funny and all around fun to read books, even for a teenager. Which is why, the minute after I posted my review for Bad Guys: Episode 3: The Furball Strikes Back, I reached over my bed and picked out my copy of Episode 4, determined to get some laughs into my day. What I found was a good book, but it didn’t click with me the way the previous three books did. I was SO EXCITED for what Aaron Blabey would do with Zombie Kittens eating everything in sight, people included, but the book fell a little short. The last few books were funny without trying too hard, but I felt like this one was trying too hard. For starters, the evil genius granny had a personality that was no different from ANY of the Bad Guys, specifically Mr. Snake. I feel like since she was features SO PROMINENTLY in this 140 page book, she should have been eccentrically different not more of the same (even though I love those same) More than that, there was something missing from the book, and I think I would attribute it to the SAME dialogue happening between the characters, which go along the lines of, “I’m going to eat you,” and “why are we the good guys?” and I sat there waiting for more content. Don’t get me wrong, this series is still REALLY funny and enjoyable, I just feel like with a few changes, the dynamic between characters has remained the same throughout the books. Still, I would DEFINITELY recommend (at least) the first three books in this series! Book five comes out in May and I’m very excited for it. 3 stars.
