Little boy, furry friend

Joe The Barbarian #2, by Grant Morrison and Sean Murphy

This, on the other hand, is only for people who have convinced themselves that everything Grant Morrison writes is genius. The art here is nice, but the story is a hackneyed tale of a young lad falling into a fantasy world where all his toys have come alive and he is a chosen hero who has to yadda yadda yadda etc. etc. etc.

Seriously dude, you're going to have to start reading these before you review them. Didn't you notice anything else at all in the comic? He spells it out fairly directly on page 20 (short of a label on each page saying "This a massive diabetic incident")

Thanks for your well mannered post. I will check with my diabetic friends whether their condition ever makes them drop into a clich├ęd fantasy world in which their toys come alive.
