Toothville is a modern fairy tale set in the magical world of tooth fairies and their home town Toothville. Tilda Hillfairy is a fairy with a string of failures against her name. Unable to graduate from Tooth Academy or maintain a career in the sugar mines, Tilda finds herself stuck at home living with her parents. She spends her days and nights in her parent’s garage trying to invent Toothrot, a magical syrup that guarantees instant tooth decay. On the eve of events that will rock Toothville, Tilda finally makes a breakthrough and Toothrot is born.
However, on Earth scientist Johann Dipplurger has just developed his magical toothpaste Decayless and it is having profound effects all over the world. With the number of cavities dropping to zero the residents of Toothville are in crisis. Tilda Hillfairy and her cat Slinky journey to Earth to put a stop to Johann’s plans and discover more than she bargained for.
Toothville is a series about Tilda and the adventure she goes on to save her town. Created by Kim Roberts & Chris Allen, it is written by Kim Roberts, drawn by Gabe Ostely and colours & letters by Chris Allen.
The first issue introduces you to Tilda’s life and what is happening in her town- Toothville. The tooth Faries are struggling to get teeth because of a new dentist, this means that the whole village is under pressure. Luckily enough at the same time Tilda has invented a potion called tooth rot – you can probably guess what it does!
However her idea gets rejected and she is told to leave Toothville, this story shows Tilda’s adventure to save her home.
This first issue works well as a good introduction to the characters in Toothville. The story is well told and ends with a nice cliffhanger!
Toothville is a great comic for both children and adults and anything in between because the humour is easy to understand.
The characters are very funny but are also quite serious at times and so they are quite easy to understand and relate to.
In my opinion I’m not to fond of the art, but this is only my opinion and may be different to others.
In my opinion Toothville is a easy read and is very exciting, I can not wait to read the next issue, and I hope you love it as much as I have.
