Things are working out pretty good for Stunted Growth's career, but they'll find a way to screw that up. Things aren't so hot for Brian Slade, but he's oblivious, and these are all Martin's problems anyway. Plus: don't miss this issue's background feature and Spotify playlist!

    Success and failure play in a crisp narrative stereo feel that works impressively well this issue. The build-up to the end of the issue is punctuated by a fun couple of pages that have Rougvie writing the rough copy for a total evisceration of the doomed album by a fictitious music critic. As the issue ends, its already apparent that the album is bad. Its a nice little stylistic punctuation for Rougvie to go into detail on just HOW bad it is in the narrative text at the end of the issue. Read Full Review
