Ancient Joe – Scott Morse ♦♦♦♦ [four out of five]

It takes about five minutes to read most Scott Morse collections.  He has such a streamlined style that extends even to the word balloons / lettering that you can zip through a story and get the gist without time wasted on pesky things like enjoyment.  I wouldn’t even suggest that you’re missing out on some deep thinking via a more patient panel-by-panel review, as Scott’s stories are generally pretty straight forward, but ‘Ancient Joe’ is a perfect example of Mr. Morse at his compressed best – it can be everything and nothing depending on how you read it.

I lied, you are missing out on some deep thinking.  It’s because you’re dumb.
