DXXL| There are some things better than discovering a brand new (to me) comic book. That feeling you get when you are walking between the shelves and that one cover catches your attention, it says “read me, your going to love me” so you add it to the haul and head out the door……..

Perhaps the most striking thing about this cover is the tease above the title. “Based On A True Fantasy”, right there I’m had and I think most of you will be too. Adding to this absurdity is the bottom right corner where we are told it contains “Immature Content”. I can think of no better way to advertise a book than that.

Gate-fold, gold foil, 18 variant type covers are not as good as the cover of this book. This cover also has a Wombat running from a saber-tooth and it is a cool piece of art work, but those two seemingly simple statements put this comic cover in the Top 10 covers of all time for me.

….The story is just what is advertised on the cover. There is action, drama, and funniness abounds. Brady Canfield takes all the things that are so serious about our “real” world and mashes them into dust in the land of Rue.
