Rating: 🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁

My Scooby Doo-loving inner child is delighted with all of these paranormal but fun comics and shows that are popping up. If you liked Gravity Falls, Lumberjanes, Paper Girls, (and maybe even Stranger Things?) there’s a high chance you’ll like The Backstagers too!

Backstage, there’s a set of mysterious corridors that function like a mix of the Tardis plus the staircases and rooms in Hogwarts: you never know where they’ll lead you, or what you’ll find once you get there, or even if you’ll find your way back. (Very reminiscent of House of Leaves!)

The colors are super bubbly bright and cheerful throughout.

I enjoyed it thoroughly and I’d like to read the next volume ASAP!!
