Oddball Comics Live!
Ever see a comic book cover that makes you wonder, "How the hell did THAT ever get published?" Cartoonist Scott Shaw! (Sonic the Hedgehog, Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew!, Simpsons Comics, The Flintstones) returns to provide the answer to that question with his popular digital slideshow of "the craziest comic books ever published!" See why Stan Lee says, "Wow, True Believers, I thought I'd seen it all, but Scott Shaw!'s hysterically hilarious Oddball Comics is the wildest, wackiest exposé of some of the craziest comic books I've ever seen! Or, to put it mildly, Scott's outrageous opuses are a blast!" And if Stan says it, it's gotta be true, right? (You'll be laughing hard, so wearing Depends is highly recommended.)
