Video game characters such as Lara Croft, the various Pokemon and even Mario and Luigi live in richly detailed virtual worlds all their own. Perhaps that’s why I found it a bit disconcerting to have KINGDOM HEARTS, one of my son’s favorites suddenly pop up with anime-style Disney characters! The graphic novel version seen here features young spikey-haired traditional anime/video game hero Sora teaming up with sidekicks Donald Duck and Goofy! As their quest goes along they have encounters with Alice, the Cheshire Cat, 101 dalmatians, Chip and Dale and more! It’s all so…so…weird! Game’s kinda cool though!
