I already gave Panter a positive review for "Jimbo". I reckon this is the sequel. It wd appear that the RAW publishers (deservedly) had more money by now. This has a little color in it & it's thicker than the earlier one. All in all, I'd say that Panter's graphic sense is even more.. GRAPHIC here. One cd say he outdid himself. Different levels of drawing detail on the same page help keep things lively. If you like drawing (wch most of the time I don't actually care that much about but I make an exception here) this is for you. C. Carr of the Village Voice sums it up nicely in a promo blurb on the back:

"If punk America-style was like a baby dropped in a shopping mall at birth and left to grow up as best it could - Jimbo's been there, innocent and outraged."
