Strange and wonderful. I'd give it 3 1/2 stars if it were allowed. I'm looking forward to volume 2, which will have Capp penned Shmoo adventures, as opposed to this volume, which was written entirely by his staff.
Be sure to check out the annotations at the end, which are entertaining and informative.
