    Another thing about this arc, if you can call it that, is Laphams commentary on big box retail stores. The Brown Bag stores, an obvious commentary on Wal-Mart type stores, sells literally everything a town needs, the the extent they own the entire town the story is set in. Brown Bag sells everything from coffee to designer fur coats to plastic surgery and even houses. In a world where Wal-Marts are becoming famous for driving out local businesses, Laphams Brown Bag town is a scary almost-reality far too close to home. This is reflected in the art as the entire issue has become brown and washed out. While the characters can be seen in very vibrant clothing, the world they inhabit is almost featureless and certainly devoid of any vibrancy. Read Full Review
