    I am going to buy the collected work as soon as it comes out. It will rest on a bookshelf next to other great works of literature. You should too. When you get to the ending and that post-script, if you are a Gen-Xer like me, I dare you not to get goosebumps. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jun 6, 2018

    This is a very powerful story that I wish had lasted longer than it did. Ultimately, it accomplished what it set out to do, and delivered a powerful and emotional ending in doing so. Read Full Review

    This is the last issue of Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles, and I'm really sad to see it go, but Mark Russell and company did a wonderful job of wrapping this miniseries up in a natural and authentic manner. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Elias Rosner Jun 11, 2018

    A poetic and bittersweet ending to a series that is more historical fiction than a "funny animal cartoon" adaptation. The back-up, despite its creativity, should have ended last issue. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 7, 2018

    It's the conclusion in Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles #6, Mark Russell's historical, melancholy trip into the history of the Cold War, the red scare, and the gay rights movement as told through obscure Hanna-Barbera characters. If you told me that I would love a comic with that logline, I would laugh at you, but Russell is nothing if not the king of DC political satire at the moment. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Jun 6, 2018

    Wordplay remains a highlight of the series along with a few visual gags, but there's not as much beneath the surface as the narrative suggests. The result is an enjoyable enough comic with an original premise, simply one not worth lingering on. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Jun 9, 2018

    A downbeat ending to a highly unusual series, this issue sees Russell revisit some old characters and themes and offer very little that we haven't already seen. Mike Feehan's art is lovely but the story is meandering and lethargic and even Russell's normally engaging dialogue feels flat and repetitive. Throw in a back-up that makes little sense for all its comedic energy and you're left with a rather unsatisfying experience. Read Full Review

    Most issues of ESL: Snagglepuss Chronicles get an easy 10 from me. They've been brilliant and Russell's work has been brilliant generally. I'm knocking off half a point only because I wasn't utterly blown away by the finale. I wish this series had been an ongoing. It's been as strong as anything on the stands these days. Beautiful art as well.

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    The issue begins 5 years later. Time has pasted and we see that SP is basically ruined, alone, and hasn’t worked since the hearings. We see a man that tried to put his stamp on the world and prove society wrong but feels that he came up short.

    SP visits his father in the home only to find out that even though his father appeared mean, miserable, hated his sons lifestyle choices, and couldn’t remember anything due to his dementia, he still felt regret for how he treated his son. Being a parent, we sometimes lose track of what’s important for more
