Amazing Adult Fantasy #21

It’s always a bit odd to read these diary comics in anything other than sequential order.  After all, you are reading about the lives of these people, and in this case things jump ahead 5 months.  Oh well, it’s my own fault for getting a random selection of these from the cheapie Poopsheet sale.  This time around Tim is running a comics shop, so there’s lots of inside info on that, and who among us who reads comics isn’t at least a little curious about the specifics behind the stores?  Also included in this issue are strips about playing a gig alongside accidental hippies, talking to one friend on the phone when you think you’re talking to another friend of the same name, a text rant about how it’s impossible to be a good rich Christian, being too fat to fit in your good clothes, going on a diet, choking on broccoli, destroying a toilet, and offending Spielberg fans.  There was also an annoying turn for the last third of the comic as Tim was starting up some sort of mystery project but was unable to talk about it, finally revealing towards the end that his comic store had taken over another store.  Why the mystery?  Were these things printed daily or something?  Oh well, it did let him go nuts with the random imagery.  He also announces in this issue that it’s only going up to #24, which he apparently stuck to.  All told, it’s a fun series.  A bit of a time capsule, granted, but it’s funny on occasion and insightful, which is all you can ask for from these things.  Like I mentioned in the last review, these are $5 for collections of 6 issues, which would make on nice beefy comic.
