BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer


This title holds up after a magnificent start. Margaret Atwood's story is a spot-on representation of the Golden Age of the world of comics. The especially depressing cliffhanger is an amazing reminder of how the earlier days of comics were not all that steady or secure. Our hero has quickly discovered that the life of the comic artist may not be worth it. With snippets of Al's actual Oursonette comic, this is a touching look back.

I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
