Comment:
Some of the dialogue comes off as hokey and possibly a little offensive, but it's all in service of an absurd, stylized short TPB. The dialogue is rather sparse anyway, which gives focus to the image. Every single one is captivating and seems almost animated. I love the ridiculous vibe of this book. I didn't much care for the original origin story at the end, but it is what it is.
