Amusing little tale. Nothing special, but it fills itís large page-count amicably enough raising a smile or a chuckle on nearly every page. 7/10

  -I wholeheartedly dispute Gerber's claims that he wrote all this sh*t sober.

  Started out hating this but gradually enjoyed it more and more.

  Right, I've had my share of Howard at this point..

  Ha! I must be the only one that loves Howard at this point. This was a hilarious break from the order.

  I generally enjoy these as well. They are what they are meant to be: silly, weird, and not to be taken seriously. Fun.

  OK, I'm not saying these are in anyway funny, worth my time, or amusing; but I am beginning to understand some of the jokes. I noticed a couple puns, the magic phrase gag, and the missile launcher on the magic mule firing not quite the missiles you'd expect.

  This was a fun one. I think Mayerik's art is better suited to the dark weirdness of Man-Thing than the goofy weirdness of Howard, but he clearly was all in on the sight gags in this one.

  The...magic words for opening the door....oh man, that's good. 5 stars just for that.

  Big Mac jingle as magic words is pretty funny

  I started out hating this. Then it somehow got worse. Lucky to get 1 star.
