I wanted to like this book. And, I did … but only a little, sort of like the blind date with the nice personality that wasn't the worst evening of your life but ended up not being followed up with a second date. On the good side, the book was fun, didn't take itself too seriously BUT never lost sight of the fact that its characters were established characters in the Marvel Universe. In the beginning, Reed Richards explains to Black Bolt that he is searching for the Infinity Gems, one of which appears to be at the Inhumans' homeland. Lockjaw overhears, and the Inhumans' teleporting dog begins the search. Besides Lockjaw, we had Zabu (who somehow didn't get any press in the blurb or promo pictures), Redwing, Lockheed, and others. With appearances by Marvel stalwarts like Giganto, Devil Dinosaur, and a certain powerful villain that one might expect to see when Infinity Gems are involved. On the negative side, the book had so many annoying aspects and inconsistencies. For starters – Frog Thor. Thor had been turned into a frog during a classic story, but returned to normal shortly thereafter – so why did we need a new character to take up the mantle? Telepathy – why can some animals communicate telepathically, while others are not able to? AND … Thanos. Come on – Thanos is able to hold an augmented Avengers squad to a standstill, so how come we didn't find the entire Pet Avengers membership squashed like bugs within two panels of the cosmic characters' appearance? Bonus short stories that have never been published outside of the Web, plus the animal edition of the Marvel Handbook round out this graphic novel. This provides additional content AND additional value, as this appears to be the first printing for each. Opinion – mixed. Rating: middle of the road. RATING: 3 stars. DISCLOSURE: This book was provided free of charge by the publisher in a random draw, in the hopes of an honest and prompt review (although such was neither required not agreed upon prior to receipt).
