Bill Watterson, Newspaper Comics, Hugo Pratt, Jimmy Olsen, Lois Lane And Whatever Happened To Magazines?

Don reviews the wonderful Exploring Calvin And Hobbes: An Exhibition Catalogue. This leads the boys to a trip down memory lane, as they talk about their favorite comic strips including The Far Side, Bloom County, Peanuts, Pogo, Krazy Kat, Doonesbury, Popeye and Flash Gordon. Don continues his review streak and talks about “Corto Maltese: Under the Sign of Capricorn” by the legendary Hugo Pratt.

The entire gang discusses the wonderful absurdity of 50’s comics such as “Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen” and “Superman’s Girlfriend Lois Lane” (as well as the impact these books have on modern books such as All Star Superman by Grant Morrison) Finally, Al relishes in monster magazines both old and new, such as Famous Monsters Of Filmland and Scary Monsters Magazine.
