Of all the '80s toy lines that you could adapt into fiction, it seems like Madballs would be the most difficult. They're just rubber balls that look like skulls or giant eyeballs or, you know, Satan. Visually striking, sure, but I mean, there's not really a narrative throughline, is there? And yet, this week, they're launching their third comic book series. Third!
But maybe I'm judging too harshly. For all I know, Madballs has a deep and rich lore that's just waiting to be mined for epic adventure and fun --- and this week, we're all getting the chance to find out whether that's the case.
