  3 stars for the Link Brothers staying connected!!!

In The Shadows - I wonder who was the mysterious boss that they kept talking about?!

Tweak - At the end they ask if anyone wants to see more of the Link Brothers, and I guess the answer was no. I wonder then, who decided to make Joshua Link the Gemini of the Zodiac??

'Nuff Said - "Now up against the car and spread your legs wide--I want to be sure you're all "clean"-Dirty Damian Link

  No, I don't want to see anymore of the brothers Link. I saw plenty of em in the town I grew up in! They owned Link's Mensware. I took one of their daughters to prom when I was a junior. I never suspected that the Link brothers had such a colorful past!

  You know the comics code is loosening up when you have cops shot in passing and guys getting threatened with acid baths.

  Wasn't there a third brother? Maybe he's the Missing Link.

2 stars. Curious story, but I probably would've voted "no thanks" as well.
