Delusion Dispatch edited by Karl Kressbach
Iâ€™m honestly not sure if itâ€™s fair to review this now. Today is 3/5/09, six years after GW Bush started one of the dumber wars in history, and this comic has a fair amount of strips that are from that early time period. Making fun of GW was still considered a mildly subversive thing to do (instead of something every sane person did) and it was easy to rail at the inaction of the completely indifferent population. So letâ€™s just leave it, huh? The strips are between funny and mildly amusing, but theyâ€™re of more use as a time capsule at this point. That still leaves a fair amount of comic that isnâ€™t quite as political to go over, so how about it? The first strip (for students of comic making only) deals with a character and his dog challenging the boundaries of the panel and failing miserably. Next up is a brief strip about a man who makes a comic to try to help starving people, but nobody reads comics. A couple of shorties follow (and Iâ€™ll leave them as a surprise so I donâ€™t ruin absolutely everything), then a strip about a man, at the end of his rope, walking off into the distance. Very slowly. No, it didnâ€™t do much for me. All told thereâ€™s more than enough funny stuff in here to warrant $1, and if you prefer your GW bashing a little quaint then youâ€™re not going to want to miss this.
