    I'm guessing the younger reader might find this issue enjoyable, as Bart's adventure is a pretty straightforward read. The threat is rather familiar to a longtime reader like myself, as it's been a staple plot device ever since writers discovered that having the villain tie the hero's girlfriend to the train tracks is an ideal method of testing a hero's mettle. Still, the action in this issue is never presented as anything too dangerous, and Bart doesn't really have to do anything all that clever, or inventive to secure his victories. Also, while this issue looks to be aimed at the younger reader, this issue does very little to engage the interest of the regular reader, as even Bart's reunion with Carol & his mother is rushed, and lacking any sense of importance. Sure the message it makes is nice, but for sheer entertainment value this issue is pretty dull, as Todd Dezago simply doesn't deliver any thrills sweeten the medicine he's offering the reader.
