really liked it

Really awesome, really underrated comics. I grew up reading these, thanks to having cool parents. I loved the characters and the art back then, and it holds up today.

The creativity here is off the charts and is a must check out for any comic reader. It's got a great blend of dark humor, goofball humor, over the top action, and a touch of love but without being corny. All this takes place on the streets of a grimy, crime-riddled city and an imaginary tribal land. All characters are likable including the "bad guys."

The artwork is dark as can be yet brilliantly splashed with color. Dialogue is hilarious and I've found myself laughing out loud quite a few times already on my current read through the series.

Michael Barron I also grew up with this series but never got around to the ending. Is it worth it?
