A tiny wee comic this. I mean the title says it all My Crow, get it. As the crow on the cover says, "That has got to be the lamest wordplay ever." Appropriate though as it is really nothing more that a four page eulogy to a dead shrimp.

Eight pages [including the cover] of lightheated silliness but at fifty cents what do you expect. This really is the comic equivalent of a coffee break. It doesn’t really change anything but does make you feel a little better for a while [until the caffeine wears off]

It is nicely drawn but ultimately quite meaningless. As I think this is its intention then I would have to say that it is very successful. Impressive nonetheless, I mean how many of us could even be bothered immortalizing the death of a shrimp by drawing a comic about it. The memory of Shrimpy lives on [on yellow coloured stock]

In a Word: Lilliputean.
