Amongst the remarkable aspects of these stories is how all or nearly all of the characters are quite childish, and so many of them are reflexively vicious. If there was just one writer, then I'd be curious about his or her personal history. If there were multiple writers, then I'd wonder what caused them to unite in this bizarre project.

Chuck: Page 5 - panel 4. Oh, hell yes. Baker could draw the holy hell out of women - good or bad. Just beautiful work throughout. -- Mykal
