    This issue was completely misleading. It said it was to be a comical issue…….Ummm…………..not hardly. there were maybe 3 pages with some incredibly cheesy and not funny comics, but there was no humor anywhere else in the issue. when you tout the issue as comical, there should be more than just a few pages with bad comics. You guys keep getting worse and worse.

    Did I mention that the comics were not funny? Because they weren’t. Not even a little bit. Nope. Not even a chuckle.

    I’ll bet you guys were desperate for some stuff to fill your issue with, because, forgive me, but the comics were just horrid. I would keep looking for a good cartoonist if I were you. Just drawing a funny looking character with a speech bubble does not make it funny.
