Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong
Jul 26, 2013 Issue #45 - Winter 2013 - Phoenix
Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong is a nifty story, written by Prudence Shen and illustrated by Faith Erin Hicks, that largely concerns a couple groups of high school rivals teaming up to compete in a robot arena battle competition in an effort to raise money for various school programs.
Charlie, a basketball jock who boasts more complexity than his classmates may give him credit for, is the chief protagonist among a fairly diverse cast of characters, including science nerds, cheerleaders, and Charlie's parents: his work-absent dad and his out-of-state mom.
While Hicks' art-clean, cute cartooning-is the star of the book, the story is fine all-ages fare as well; it should be approachable and enjoyable for anyone who enjoys high school/family stories that are light on the drama, if poignant in places, and heavy on the amusing interactions of the characters.
