The stories are centered around the relationship between Salto & Ubba and their friends. An important theme is realizing one’s dreams. And the series also talks about body positivity. As in all, open communication is key.
In the first volume we get to know all main characters. We see how Salto gets triggered in pursuing his dreams. The first book ends with Salto wishing to set up a Bearlesque Talent Show.
In the second volume Salto tries to realize his Bearlesque Talent Show (BTS). But Ponky, his rival, has other plans. Ubba is struggling with his company and lacks some needed support from his partner Salto. Preparations for the first show are in full bloom and quite a few surprises pop up. And then, Salto’s estranged parents make an unexpected visit.
“Wilbert van der Steen made an absolutely funny and unaffectedly feel-good comic. He intentionally created it to incorporate the LGBTQ community into the Dutch language version graphic novel genre, but in doing so succeeded in making it all inclusive. Salto & Ubba part 1 will certainly leave you wanting more.”
Belgian VRT/LangZullenWeLezen’s review on Salto & Ubba 1
“I absolutely love Salto and Ubba! The characters have delightful personalities and designs and really light up the pages, and I’m already drawn into the world that’s created. Fabulous! I’m excited to see where it all goes... I’m there for the ride!”
Justin Hall, editor No Straight Lines on Salto & Ubba 1
