Review: ★★★☆☆

In an effort to write this review I decided to get high to do it. Wanted it. Need it…didn’t do it. The story starts out with the little high school things like a teacher telling his students not to do drugs. We’ve all heard the story and Andy is that good in school that wants to just live a little. Andy is our main character that well goes against what his parents says and sneaks out to have a like fun. It becomes an opportunity to save the world. I haven’t decided what the creators are trying to tell us here. Smoke a little weed and see something out of the norm. The comic doesn’t take itself totally seriously, but comes off as an odd teen comedy with an odd twist that justifies illicit drug use. The art from Geoffo is fun as the cover suggests with it’s green somethings or other. As a parent, I’ve actually the same conversations with own kids…I can relate. The book is an easy read with much more story to tell…hopefully we recover from the withdraw until the next issue.
