    Final Verdict: 9.0 " Rarely does a premier issue manage to elicit as many left field laughs while managing to hook readers into the narrative as effectively as “Bronze Age Boogie” #1 does. We need more books like this. Read Full Review

    I didn't know what to expect before reading this, but whatever those expectations were, consider them shattered"in a FANTASTIC way! This may seem like wall-to-wall insanity, but it's an absolute party full of ideas that I'm all in for hanging around and seeing what more madness they develop into. A nostalgia trip that'sdone in a completely original fashion. Nothing is explained to you and it makes everything all the more exciting. Give this book a read if you want something completely different to everything else on your stack. Read Full Review

    Whether you're a nostalgia fiend (guilty), or one who enjoys experiencing what new creative talents have wrought (also guilty), Bronze Age Boogie #1 feels your pain. Its struggle between eras strives to parallel your own and provide crooked smiles along with perspective. Mirthful snickers are spurred by delight with talking chimps. Others by fierce barbarian warriors unexpectedly bellowing battle cries born of situation comedies. No matter how inconsistent our devotion to nostalgia may be, the smiles from this book are unwavering. Read Full Review

    There is also a bonus within this issue, as we get another story from a different creative team and its also a ton of fun. MAJOR URSA is penned by Tyrone Finch and illustrated by Mauricet. This is a 1950s sci-fi B-Movie in comic book form. Which, for me, is a genre that I absolutely love whether its on screen, in a novel or indeed a comic. What if the space race used Bears instead of Chimps and what if an accident during a test imbued one of those bears with human intelligence? At only eight pages long, we only get a very brief introduction to this series but its a fun take on the genre that Im looking forward to seeing more of. Read Full Review

    If you are willing to jump in without testing the water, Bronze Age Boogie is a fun dip into weird waters.

    I am not always a fan of strange or weird stories. Some writers of the weird create idiosyncratic tales that are little more than exercises in style with scant dramatic purpose. I find little value in looping plots filled with absurd characters that exist for no other reason than to be peculiar. Fortunately this first issue from Ahoy Comics walks the line of intriguing and strange without crossing over into ridiculousness.

    Employing a wide range of bizarre characters, sword and sorcery, talking monkeys, zombie-dinosaurs, time travel, and some funky 70’s nostalgia, Stuart Moore’ ‘Swords Against Dacron!” do more
