Review:  ★★★★★

It’s been four quality issues of comic fun, but all good things must come to an end. Issue #4 left poor Spencer in the grasp of the worst bully ever: HOCK. A some what overlarge young man that has seen the inside of Rottenville High School too many years. The first half of the fifth issue simply puts Hock and Rufus at odds with each other during the Bully Wars. A fun game of cat and rat if you will. It all leads to a quality standoff involving the Dodgeball Deathblaster 3000. The book ends with some clever thinking at the head of Rufus. It’s a satisfying ending that merits this 5 issue series. Aaron Conley puts together some wild art with some great detail and action. It’s nice when exaggerated character fill their space with belief. Skottie Young points out the benefits of treating people decently. He show that if you working together with someone you don’t normally do, things can turn out ok.  The story allows for forgiveness and the chance for people to do better. I hope this is a look forward to what Young and Conley can put together.
