Miraculous forever! Lady Bug and friends continue their close relationship with our beloved stickers as the years go by and new collections keep coming out. Not only that, we can also add that the quality improves and the editorial offer too.
Sometimes it’s even nice to repeat yourself and we do it. If you want to judge Panini, don’t stop at the static football albums (even by force of circumstances, we don’t even feel guilty about it, on the contrary, we like tradition in this case), but let yourself be carried away by the imagination and variety with which the albums are made on cartoons and comic series. Small and big jewels of the world of stickers.
The new Miraculous album follows the current line that we like to call the New Wave of Panini Albums. Satisfactory paper quality again, the price of the sachets which still settles on human figures, considering the period and without thinking of when the sachets cost 100 lire, other times, very distant, unfortunately, but not only for the cost of the sachets. Above all, it is the editorial proposal that convinces us, no useless and expensive cards, pages full of content, fun stickers to attach, a central poster that acts as an insert and somehow even a story in itself.
Total number of stickers 192, we are at the maximum limit of acceptable stickers for this type of album but we are still in a collection that is not impossible to complete.
The album is renewed giving little space to the individual characters but letting us be carried away in the heart of the animated series, each page is a story. No hesitation, you immediately enter the action! The right mix of captions and stickers that find ample space in the album, luckily at least with this type of collection the trend of not sticking the stickers has not yet arrived, it would be a real shame. The fun is reading the album like an illustrated book and then filling it with content through our little paper friends.
You’ll be spoiled for choice, forget the repetitive format, on this occasion we have rectangular, round, shaped, special stickers. Not as big as in other collections but with that charm that only comic and cartoon stickers can have, since the legendary albums of the 70s and 80s.
Central poster which is a real insert, dedicated to the special episode of the series set in Shanghai. Choice of quality, however, keep the same type of paper, always opaque and therefore resistant, furthermore the total opening of the pages allows to safeguard the album. It is not necessary to detach the insert, you can easily complete it and keep it intact within the rest of the collection.
Albums among the best of this first part of 2023, the “French cousins” are not only good with Asterix, Blueberry and the masterpieces (among others) of Moebius and Bilal, in addition to the classic comics, they can also have their say with animation series !
