I am an old comicbook geek and totally unfamiliar with the AD2000 comics. But I can tell from this sampling that it has to be one of the funniest and most ironic of comics because without an exception that’s what all these stories are. The best I can say about this: it was fun to read. ~~ Catherine Book
