Sergeantstein and his Mauraudin’ Monsters – Pete Von Sholly

Sergeant SteinWell that was weird. It’s a collection of short stories about a military unit composed of Universal Monsters such as Dracula, the Wolf Man, the Mummy, etc.

Despite being a modern printing it feels more like a 70’s comic with narration describing what is going on in the panel. The humour, and it is supposed to be funny, is largely weak slapstick and puns galore. The kind of thing you would expect in the Dandy or Beano. While reading it you keep thinking you hear the canned laughter from an early Scooby Doo cartoon.

The art is probably digital and insanely garish. It is all colour and there are no outlines or inking visible which is quite a striking style.

Sadly no thumbs today.
