Review: ★★★☆☆

Doc Brown’s boys, Jules and Verne, have been looking for their beloved pet Einstein. In the progress, Nazi spies have confused “Einstein” with Doc Brown and the real Albert Einstein. The story continues at the 1939 World’s Fair in Chicago. It’s a cool setting for the story tellers to continue their tale. Their ends up being an interesting interaction between Einstein (the dog) and Price Rufio from Barataria. It’s a nice dog moment the writers came up with. The end of this issue puts our characters in further potential danger. This episode came off more tedious and actually drug the story out more than I thought necessary. I generally enjoy reading the book, but I think I need more from Bob Gale and company. Since this is a limited series, we need our writers to up the drama a bit. The art continues to be consistent and colorful. The creators have brought some of our favorite character back to life and I would hope our precious reading time it worth it.
