BUZZ! - Softcover
Artist: Tessa Stone
Webster is a bundle of nerves headed into his first day of high school, but whatever academic and social horrors he feared are nothing compared to what’s in store for him as he stumbles into an unsanctioned street level spelling bee! And this ain't no staged production, either – letters fly like jump kicks and the losers leave bruised and beaten more often than not! Soon he’s propelled into the fast-paced world of competitive spelling by the mysterious Outlaw King and his cohort the Black Queen. Does Webster have what it takes to get the spelling world buzzing? Find out in this word-based battle royale from web-sensations Ananth Panagariya (Johnny Wander) and Tessa Stone (Hanna is Not a Boy’s Name)!
- "Stone’s art style manages to make two people spelling obscure words seem extremely dramatic which is a helluva feat by itself. The opponents Webster go up against are also similarly outré from an immortal who has seen every language develop since man first appeared to a sorceress who magics up words. ... (think Dragon Ball’s tournaments but with a much larger vocabulary)" - That'll Do
-"I can't wait to read this in print and I really hope they come out with a second volume in the series. I can see middle school aged and up enjoying this fast paced enjoyable comic, and who knows it might even create some new spelling champions out there? I give the book 4 out of 5 stars." - Andrew Shuping; Goodreads
- " The comic is fast paced, with spelling used like a sort of super power. There's a number of street fights, official battles, and a death match or two. ... The art is just as exciting as the action-packed Spelling Bees it features, color in black and white with yellow as the highlight colors. Each page is balanced well, the characters' styles are dramatic and interesting, and the whole thing is generally a lot of bold fun."- Alaina; Goodreads
-"Fans of "Scott Pilgrim" will enjoy this. It's set in a world where Spelling Bees are strictly regulated due to their potential for physical injury and even death. " "Quirky but rarified. The art was great, the plot was clever, and fun" - Goodreads
