"The Legacy" (96 pages, DragonFish Comics) is the graphic novel debut from writer Andrew McGinn and artist David Neitzke that takes aim at the long-standing tradition of passing a comic strip down from father to son. (Or to put it another way, the long-standing tradition of refusing to end a strip even though it pretty much had run its course by, oh, 1969.)
Inside "The Legacy," it's just like Sunday morning. Only funny. You'll be tickled by the military cutups of "Cheeseburger Hill"; delighted by the domesticated pirate life of "The Blackbeards"; and riveted by the serialized drama of "Morgan Parker, Notary Public." Reading "The Legacy" will soon become one of your favorite pastimes, up there with jogging, Party Poker, making bagels and whatever else you love doing! It will find its way into your heart, whether or not you are a big comic strip fan. It's just a charmer like that!
Then there's "Simple Pleasures," starring that mischievous imp next door, Dougie Riggle, who's been stuck at the age of 9 since 1961.
So what are you waiting for? Put down that lavish hardcover volume of "The Complete Buster Brown" and get this instead!
