Gets a 2 point deduction from my actual score just for saying something is better than The Cure. (PS. Nothing is better than The Cure)
Gets a 0.5 point bonus for punching Hitler.

The dialogue goes from incredibly bad to outright cringe-y at times, with its only decent point being the art by Quinones.

First of all, given that she was born in a lesbian utopia in a parallel dimension with no actual concept of what latina, latinamerica or even the United States is -- why is the cover a homage to Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA" album?

Isn't "Pa'lante" usually a slang puerto rican drag queens use?
