We’re in overtime now. Vega’s nightmares become reality, causing the world around her—and her exotic dancing crew—to burn to ash. And in “Arnie and Albert”, a drug drop money exchange goes awry when a hallucinations start getting the best of all involved. This is the last leg of The Ride.
Again, this Ride was not my cup of tea. However, I know there is an audience for such fringe comics out there.
And I am glad this forum has its place, but it became too predictable. Even the Scare Crow nod to the “Arnie and Albert” had too much Breaking Bad in it to really stand on its own.
I’m glad the Ride is now over. However, as a reviewer, please note that this is my opinion. You may wish to call a Ride of your own, take it for a spin. But be forewarned, it you like original stories, pick up only issue 4 and thumb to the back. You’ll be glad you did! The Four Stars given is that somewhere, someone is thumbing on the side of the road expected to be picked up by this Ride. I hope it finds you as it did not find me.
