Shenanigans and hi-jinx continue in issue number two of Boom! Box’s wonderful Goonies-inspired story, Misfit City, and it’s just as fun and full of laugh-out-loud moments as its predecessor. While the first issue of Misfit City introduced us to the girls, their dynamic, and the humdrum day-to-day life in Cannon Cove, the second issue focuses more on kicking off their treasure hunt. And where there’s a treasure hunt, there’s bound to be a few unsavory villains.

After initially examining the treasure map that they stumbled across in issue one, the girls pay a visit to the rare books room of their local library which is, coincidentally, my favorite part of the story so far (and there’s a whole lot to like here.) It’s in the rare book room that affable, mousy Dot truly begins to shine through as a wonderful character. Hours spent studying under her mother’s thumb finally seem to pay off as she puts two-and-two together and realizes that their treasure map contains a rebus that could lead them to another clue.

As mentioned before (and as Goonies and Scooby-Doo have taught us) with treasure often comes a menagerie of villains (goth Team Rocket and a mysterious, Captain Haddock-looking fellow I’m as of yet undecided on), and the girls soon discover that they’re not the only ones in Cannon Cove looking for answers… and possibly pirate gold.
