Captivating Cover: Sigma 6 Issue #4
Ready for an understatement? The Sigma 6 cartoon series is not well regarded. Part of the 4KidsTV block, it was a good-looking show, but weak plots and mediocre voice acting killed any excitement I might have had for it. That’s right, I actually looked forward to the show. I realize it wasn’t aimed at my generation (or age for that matter) but Sunbow it is not. On the positive side, at least Hasbro put forth an effort to create a playable toy line along with media tie-ins.
I spotted the comic on the racks, and had a quick thought or two about picking it up, but decided against it. Again, it just wasn’t for me. This issue’s cover employs an age-old comic conceit: portraying a scene that doesn’t represent what’s inside. Scarlett and the Baroness do fight in this issue, and a part of the story is set during a fashion show, but the two ladies don’t go at it on the catwalk. I bet the cover did manage to pull in a few teen and older fans with its subject matter.
