Episode CXXIX - Lucky Acme Freakout!

Though mainstream comics play such a pivotal role in the influence and production of all comics created anywhere ever, at times it behooves us to lay certain waste-scrappings at the gnarled feet of the so-called 'independent' breed. The esteemed creators Chris Ware and Gabrielle Bell get a dose of the old neighborhood-ribbin' in this good-natured, harmless, and legally-sanctionable 'review session.' Bell's "Lucky" is first up, followed by the latest edition of Acme Novelty Library. Both are available from some hoighty-toighty shop on the internet. They probably have cool websites, too. Much better than this shitty-ass blog. But a digression has been made, and must be eradicated. Enjoy the recording from the following link.

Good episode. I found a couple of excerpts from “Lucky” online and it doesn’t seem that terrible in one or two panel comic strips. However, I would probably shoot myself if I had to read a whole book about somebody’s shitty life. So, thanks to alerting me to another pretentious indie book to avoid. Keep up the good work.

Dear Anonymous Female Fan-
Wait 'til you hear my follow-up ACTUAL review (I read it, for once.)

You may want to re-visit your decision. Or maybe not.

Thanks for listening, Sweetheart. Tell a couple of your girlfriends about the show, too.
