BRIAN POSEHN, GERRY DUGGAN & SCOTT KOBLISH reform Voltron (metaphorically only) from their days on Deadpool (also not appearing) to tell a true story and lost chapter from our nation's sad and failed war on drugs.

The year is 1985. The First Lady decides to crush Northern California cannabis farmers and deploys the biggest tool in the armed forces: Scotch McTiernan (collectible first of many hilarious appearances). "If it weeds...we can kill it." Scotch puts his boots on the ground in Humboldt and does what he does best-but what happens when he gets high for the first time?

This one-shot has it all: laughs, tears, heart, a more

    Graphic Policy - Ricardo Denis Mar 30, 2022

    Duggan, Posehn, and Koblish do more than enough to keep the conversation going on what is still a hotly debated topic. They condemn bad practices while making an honest plea to eliminate a problem that has no business being considered a crime in our times. For the benefit of all, they enlist lizard people, 80s action heroes, and a weed version of Swamp Thing to lend a hand in fighting the good fight. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Mike Eakins Apr 20, 2022

    When the EiC threw this book at me to review, I knew that in order to write a proper review, this needed to be written while high. In the first half, I succeeded, but in the bottom half not so much. Also, I need to say that I have moved on to a super dope version of Widespread Panics Bust it Big from their show at Red Rocks in 2013. B.P. may not approve but the kush wants what the kush wants. Final thoughts about a book that dispels the bullsh*t surrounding marijuana and the bullsh*t laws that keep it hampered its badass! If this was a party, this creative team definitely brought their own weed, and its gas! Read Full Review

    A corny goofball one-shot that gestures towards some deeper themes. Read Full Review

    It's a romp and doesn't aim to make an argument that most sensible voters have already heard and embraced, although it does provide some useful sources at the end. Regardless of your habits, there's fun to be found in this issue and the rating below will likely seem too low if you're reading it while celebrating the holiday this Wednesday. Read Full Review
