despite claims by some, does not give the impression that everyone is
shouting - and is also much easier to read. (And just looks better!)
The bad news 'though, is that long-running stalwart, ROGER
balloons, which are far too large, dominate the panels, and are
not only sore on the eyes but utterly uninviting. I didn't even bother
trying to read the strip, which is populated by basic, unappealing,
bug-eyed jellyfish-type doodles, 'illustrated' in the 'How to Draw
Comics Quickly and Without Much Effort' style that the
artist is (in)famous for.
The editor, the same man responsible for the decisions behind
what comic art should look like, he knows best. We can only hope
that what is so far only a small irritating rash does not turn into the
same full-blown terminal disease that doomed The Dandy.
Fingers crossed, eh?
