Envy...self-loathing...jealousy...self-destruction...backstabbing-and that's just Monday in this business they call show. Ruff and Reddy are not ready for this maelstrom of malice that's a daily affair in the entertainment-industrial complex, while Pamela Chyron, their increasingly hard-bitten agent, finds herself cleaning up one mess before she's finished burying another. It's hell out there in Hollywood!

    Imay have said this before, but Mac Reys artwork is perfect for the material.Clearly identified figures against a vague but identifiable background give theartwork an animated appearance. Id be curious to see his interpretation ofother properties, to see how he would render more traditional comic book farein a variation of this same style. I hope he sticks around and that DC is ableto find him a suitable project when this six-issue series concludes. Read Full Review

    Overall, it's an interesting experiment, but it lacks the punch of the social satire in Flintstones or Jetsons. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Dec 27, 2017

    While an improvement on previous installments, this issue feels like the story is only now getting going and there's simply not enough of it to make this a memorable or overwhelmingly enjoyable comic. Mac Rey's cartoon cel-inspired artwork continues to captivate and impress, and Chaykin's script delivers some laughs, but this is still a series that seems curiously reluctant to tell a proper story. There are encouraging signs, though, and I hope for better things next time round. Read Full Review
