VERY FINE/NEAR MINT (W) Boothby (A) Delaney, Davis
At last! Comic book-dom's portly purveyor of four-color fiction has his own comic mini-series! Just imagine what is in store for you when an entire comic book title is given over to explore the adventures and pet peeves of one of the comic industry's very own. Is Comic Book Guy destined to be the subject of a story arc that ranks among such notable classics as Watchmen, Maus: A Survivor's Tale, The Dark Knight Returns, Marvels, and X-Men: The Dark Phoenix Saga? And will he live to tell - or, at the very least, blog - the tale that will make fanboys weep and bring a nation to its knees?

BONUS REVIEW by GARY OWENS
Truly, the Comic Book Guy told me to tell you that if you don’t buy this comic, and the rest of this mini-series, he will ban you for life from his store. This issue features the death of a famous Simpson’s character, with the promise that it isn’t a dream, a hoax, or an imaginary tale. If you want the typical people who drone on about non-comic book/TV/movie activities, like Bart, Homer or Lard Lad, you will have to buy other comics, even though he grudgingly gave them brief but dreary appearances here. But be warned this miniseries expects to be bigger than the Who Shot J.R.? episode that marked the slow decline of the show Dallas. He knows, because the Comic Book Guy is still here, and J.R. isn’t.
