Reviewed by Weird – Cereal Killer #1
Back when I was a kid, breakfast cereal was King. You couldn’t escape all the loud, colorful commercials featuring larger-than-life characters. And as kids, they felt so real, because who else was going to make sure this delicious cereal was going to get made? Even now, these sugar-coated mascots are still as popular as ever, and even more realistic looking, with them trading out their 2D looks for a more realistic computer-generated appearance.
But, consider for a moment…what if they were real? Well, that’s exactly what our friends at Bad Bug Media Scott Wilke, Kit Wallis, and Dave Lentz did, with one of their newest books, Cereal Killer #1!
Here’s the premise:
Detective B. Runch, a salty detective, finds himself in a sugar-coated clusterf*ck as he investigates the murders of famous cereal mascots.
Now, I’m sure I’ve talked about this before, but in case I haven’t, weird little stories like this, full of over-the-top characters are right up my alley, and this story definitely had me just by the premise alone! This world where cereal mascots are not only real, but they are incredibly rich and famous, is such a fun idea! This pun-filled mystery will have you chuckling at the over-the-top characters and leave you with a mystery bigger than Frankenwaffle!
This was such a fun, creative idea that you definitely don’t want to miss out on, so make sure you check out the Kickstarter, where you can get this book and TWO other books! Bad Bug Media has a great record of delivering incredible books, and that streak definitely continues with Cereal Killer #1!
