Well, we're at the end of our short trip as far as looking
back at the covers to the 26 issue run of WHAT THE - - ?! goes.
Hopefully you've enjoyed the journey, along with our occasional
detours into NOT BRAND ECHH territory - I know I have.
Y'know, one of the most tedious comics I've ever read
is FANTASTIC FOUR ROAST, published back in the early '80s.
I usually enjoy FRED HEMBECK, but it just went on forever and
it seemed that it would never stop. However, I suspect that not every
What The - - ?! story was an unparallelled example of joyous jollity
and could probably rival the unceasing turgidity of FFR.
One day I'll sit down and re-read them and find out for sure.
(I re-read Roast last year, and almost lost the will to live less than
halfway in. As I was reading it in the loo at the time, my legs
had lost all sensation by the time I got through it.)
Anyone got any favourite stories from any of the featured
issues that they'd care to recommend? If so, feel free to share
your picks in the comments section.
