    I may be loopy from pain medication I pretty much always am but I thought this was hilarious It also managed to reference virtually every kids cartoon and toy range since the 1960s OK, this might not have been the most cerebral comicbook I ve ever read but I had an absolute blast reading it It probably wins the award for Most Dirty Jokes in Any Marvel Comic Ever , too.

    Reading single issues Note that, as of this writing only the first 4 issues are out yet And I m surprised at how much I m enjoying this title Though to be fair, I do have a penchant for both B list characters and titles with a slight goofiness to them I realize this title isn t for everyone, but if you liked SquirrelGirl, Great Lakes Avengers, Howard the Duck, or Damage Control amongst others give this title a try.

    Slapstick That s Not Funny No really, it s not The only reason I ordered this to my hold shelf at the library was a goodreads review that stirred the same nostalgia in me that it did in that reader s heart and mind I remember picking up Slapstick 1 at my neighborhood grocery store in 1992 In my city, that s where we went for a limited selection of comics and Marvel collectors trading cards I can picture some of the art, but I don t remember anything about the story, and I m pretty sure Slapstick That s Not Funny No really, it s not The only reason I ordered this to my hold shelf at the library was a goodreads review that stirred the same nostalgia in me that it did in that reader s heart and mind I remember picking up Slapstick 1 at my neighborhood grocery store in 1992 In my city, that s where we went for a limited selection of comics and Marvel collectors trading cards I can picture some of the art, but I don t remember anything about the story, and I m pretty sure I only had one part of that limited series which apparently was voted Best New Comic by Marvel readers that year so it wasn t much of a story.The original Slapstick was a thing of its time the same time period that Animaniacs and The Mask and several other Jim Carrey moves came out and were much quoted and imitated by adolescents and high schoolers in the U.S Having recently re watched the first few seasons of Animaniacs on Netflix, I know that series was far ahead of its time and still stands the test of time Read this hilarious look back in time at an imagined pitch meeting at Warner Brothers for Animaniacs It introduced a new generation to the Marx Brothers comedic style, combining political savvy with slapstick, and even gave us insight into films of the time that our parents were probablyfamiliar with.On the other hand, I d wager that rewatching The Mask, Ace Ventura, or Dumb and Dumber would be rather painful experiences at this point in my life.Slapstick That s Not Funny is just a lot of dick jokes and references to popular cartoons, toys, and cartoons derived from toys from the second half of the 80s into the early 90s It s not the worst comic book I ve read after all, I was able to get through every panel of all 6 issues collected but it s not one I would recommend to anyone I would not even recommend it to the presumed target demographic of teenage boys fueled by sugar and a new influx of sex hormones, because we can do better, and they really don t needof this garbage.my review is at

    That s not funny sums ups my experience pretty well.Marvel Infinite Comics are not my favorite to start with, but I expected Slapstick to be, worst case scenario, a rip off of Dark Horse Comics The Mask, but if failed at being a toon in most ways.Slapstick won t move a muscle unless he s getting payed and is obsessed with getting his wangdoodle back, to the point of hiring a villain who he betrays instantly when confronted by the good guys.Slapstick spends most of the comic fighting That s not funny sums ups my experience pretty well.Marvel Infinite Comics are not my favorite to start with, but I expected Slapstick to be, worst case scenario, a rip off of Dark Horse Comics The Mask, but if failed at being a toon in most ways.Slapstick won t move a muscle unless he s getting payed and is obsessed with getting his wangdoodle back, to the point of hiring a villain who he betrays instantly when confronted by the good guys.Slapstick spends most of the comic fighting pop culture parodies and it feels like the people behind this knowabout popular cartoon than classic toons , he fights a He Man parody, My Little Pony centaurs and meets G.I.Joe dog people.The minimum I expected of Slapstick was for him to be able to take a beating, but most of the people he meets know his weak point, the best I got was Slapstick getting an imprint of a fist on his face, speaking of which, you d think he d pullfunny faces, but we don t really get much in that department either.His cartoon powers seem to limited to invulnerability, except he s not, a mallet called Gertie, which is kinda tiny, magic pockets , from which he just pull pop culture references and a grenade or two It looks like he can change costumes, but only uses this power to dress up for women he wants to impress.I ll end this with a minor spoiler that proves they don t seem to know what to do with a toon The big baddie is defeated by an anvil, but they don t show it because the baddie wasn t a toon at that moment Like I said before they fail at toon faces and instead of having a flat head, pained expression and stars flying around, it s just a panel with the anvil falling and the next panel has the anvil on the floor that s it that snot funny

    I got this comic for 20 cents and sometimes you can find some gems that are worth MUCHthan what they re at.YeeahNoth this one tho Well, I know that sounds insolent, my bad, but this really is not funny The premise sounds fun enough, a teenager who was mutated into a cartoon character blessed with the ability to beat the shit out of everyone he makes a buck out of, and point out he no longer hasman parts I already cursed once I ll spare you now.That brand of humor can be quite enj I got this comic for 20 cents and sometimes you can find some gems that are worth MUCHthan what they re at.YeeahNoth this one tho Well, I know that sounds insolent, my bad, but this really is not funny The premise sounds fun enough, a teenager who was mutated into a cartoon character blessed with the ability to beat the shit out of everyone he makes a buck out of, and point out he no longer hasman parts I already cursed once I ll spare you now.That brand of humor can be quite enjoyable when used right.I get it, the protagonist is purposefully made super annoying It would have been an interesting dichotomy, however, to show how the world is different that this cartoon How the story and circumstances create a fun narrative and the protagonists just keeps ruining it He then regrets it, making him relatable and then he actually learns.But nah.The whole cast is annoying as well with predictable jokes that might work for a younger audience, but if you re gonna show gore and violence it would make sense to add solid mature jokes as well.That solidifies that this story should be taken seriously but it does not take itsef too seriously.It got half of it right The whole way I was blown awayby how someone would choose to leave this in a published book with your name attached to it Some missed opportunities, and not a very good read.I ll acknowledge maybe this wasn t the most exciting project to undertake but it didn t seem like they tried The creators should not be remembered solely for this, I guess you can call it a bump in the road.Stay groovy fellow reader

    I honestly thought this was a rather funny comic I picked it up from the library on an impulse and would recommend it to others It uses slapstick s cartoony look, along with other cartoon parodies of predominantly 80 s cartoons, as a contrast to the rest of the art in the book The art is where it s most interesting but it some humorous discussion on the challenges of being a cartoon character It s short, sweet and extremely fun and the main thing is I had fun which is what I expected
