Matt has sent me another parcel of his stamp art comics. I wish he wouldn't. I can't think of any new ways of telling you how great this little books are. These issues are up to the usual imaginative standard, with the sheet music and tunes that look to be catchy.

There are even a few new features on offer here. #41 takes the form of a photo novel. I don't usually like this format, but as illustrations for lyrics it was a success. Special#49 and Music Comics #38 both aim for some social commentary, with the story Roboto reflecting on the advertising media, and December Song reminds us that the story of Jesus isn't just about buying presents or Easter eggs.

So there you go, that's all I can come up with. Pitiful isn't it.

In a Word: Lyrical.
