"POUND FOOLISH MAKES A CASSEROLE"
Every house is a haunted house, from the kitchen to the attic.

This funny-haha anthology of dejected jesters takes a trip to the grocery store, with art by Eisner winner GABRIEL WALTA.

    Life lessons, grease paint, and a pretty decent cauliflower casserole recipe. Haha has been consistently brilliant, especially given that it's an anthology. Chapter five is in strong contention for best installment in an amazing mini. I'm a fan. Read Full Review

    While this is a series of six issues, the only ones I would invest in is #3 and this one, #5, thus far! Here is hoping that #6 that is coming up is half as good as this one! If you have an extra dollar in your budget, you need to read this one! Especially if you have an older parent or grandparent still around! Sigh".. great story! Read Full Review

    Despite the more macabre subject matter of previous issues, this one is less unsettling and more bittersweet, reminding us that there are people underneath those jovial exteriors and, rather than hiding who they really are, instead enjoy embracing the sillier and more joyous parts of life.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 26, 2021

    Haha, has had a genuinely diverse series of moods. The penultimate issue is a perfect match for the strange patchwork of stories that Prince has crafted for the series. Theres no telling what Prince might do in the interest of wrapping up his appealingly quirky, little journey in July. As ephemeral as each story from each issue has been, its going to be sad to see the final chapter saunter its way to the rack next month. Itll be a bittersweet moment for the indie rack to see this series come to an end in July.  Read Full Review

    This issue is one part killer art and one part insightful storytelling, with a great recipe sprinkled on top. Delicious is the word that suggests itself. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 1, 2021

    This is a remarkably sweet story, wrapped in nostalgia and designed to undermine everything you know from 'It.' Totally worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford May 27, 2021

    Haha #5 delivers a strong heartfelt, if bittersweet, narrative that both surprised as well warmed my heart. Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone May 26, 2021

    This series is a collection of short stories drawn by different artists giving a very unique and different type of comic book experience. These stories are for those people who want something different to superheroes from their comics. I think HA HA is a bespoke level of storytelling with some lovely artwork but is an acquired taste.
