Written and Illustrated by Tim Hensley
Revealed by Fantagraphics
I’m not solely positive what I simply learn in Detention # 2, however I didn’t a lot take care of it.
It appears to have been a spoof of the outdated Classics Illustrated comics, an adaptation of a 129-year-old minor “traditional” by Stephen Crane (Maggie, A Woman of the Streets), acted out right here by solid members from Dennis the Menace, Snuffy Smith, and the Household Circus, in addition to some random Milt Gross and Don Martin characters and the Yellow Child.
It’s attainable it might have been funnier if I had been extra aware of the supply materials it’s adapting/parodying however I can’t see how.
As it’s, I fairly favored the cartooning model, apparently by one Tim Hensley (arduous to inform because the credit attempt to fail to be amusing, too), however the ebook general appeared to me a supremely unfunny slog.
If it have been shorter and had extra nudity, I might have sworn this was a Nineteen Eighties Nationwide Lampoon strip, somewhat than a Fantagraphics ebook—and apparently the second in a collection.
I nonetheless don’t suppose I might have cared for it, I’m afraid.
