Ragmop

Ragmop by Rob Walton (http://planetlucypress.blogspot.com/)

When you spend $25 on a book, graphic novel compilation or not, you want to feel that you get your money's worth. In the case of Ragmop, it's definitely money well-spent and more!

There's nothing I love better than a zany romp through the Universe where everything and anything is questioned and poked fun at. And when even the most absurd accusations can ring frighteningly true (New World Order, anyone?) then you know that there's a lot more than just satire at work here, there's intelligence. Add in a slew of nods and winks at the animated hijinks of my youth (be it a Bugs/ Daffy joke or the idea of The Enterpise taking shore leave at a Starbucks planet) and the guffaws keep coming!

This book is just so much fun on so many levels that some might miss the fact that everything questioned in done because Rob truly cares about the answers, even while pointing out the absurdity of it all!

I loved the story, I loved the art, I loved the zaniness (and especially teh dinosaurs!)... I just really loved the book!

A hearty congratulations to Rob Walton for finishing this incredible tale!

Thank you for the kind review. I take all comments seriously and to heart, even if they're not from Variety or Entertainment Weekly. What readers think is far more important than what reviewers think. I'm gratified Ragmop filled the bill (and more) for you.
