There’s something to be said about a book that lives up to its tagline… unfortunately THIS book’s tagline happens to be: “Who Says A Comic Book Has to be Good??”
So yeah – today we’re looking at something altogether different… a “Just the X, ma’am” dive into Marvel’s attempt at Silver Age Satire… Not Brand Echh!
I know humor is relative… and I also know that, perhaps yer humble host can be a bit too serious at times… but, hoo boy, we’re in for quite the ride with this one! Thankfully this story is full of weird pop-culture references, which kept me researching and entertained… too bad I had to keep coming back to talk about the story itself! The Doom Patrol show up… so, at least there’s that!
Plus: As I own this physical comic, I’m including our usual Essential back-matter… we’ve got a Letters Page and smattering of weird ads to talk about!
