First Impression:  O.K.

This is the weakest of all the treasury’s that I’ve read. You’d think it be the first one but it isn’t.  Even the running commentary isn’t as strong in this volume. IDon't like rat’s stories. They usually involve too much reading (obviously I like reading but comics should be short and sweet) They annoy me. The Political one on page 25 killed me. Commentary as well.  But I miss the crocodiles!!!!!  The crocodiles finally show up at the end, so that was good.  But this book was a bit disappointing. As always, I love the cross over strips though most of the ones in this treasury weren’t as good as others.  I do like the good, the bad and the ugly section which shows strips that didn’t run or were censored or altered.
