I would debate whether you would actually call the contents of this zine “comics.” Is it illustrated? Absolutely, but one panel a page, one illustration per “thought.” There aren’t speech bubbles in most of the strips. It feels more like you’re reading a series of short stories with the occasional art break every page or so. Sorry guys, but I can’t give this a pass just because it features a mini-documentary comic on the Rhythm Chicken. (Also, fact checking note: they refer to Rhythm Chicken having an “oversized bunny mask” when it’s clearly a chicken head.) Grade: C-. –Bryan Static (
