This collection of short comics is a good sampling of some adult material with work by the Hernandez Brothers, Robert Crumb, Dan Fogel and others. The range of art styles is interesting, though I felt like I was in a time warp with some of the material dating from the early seventies such as the Robert Crumb Mr Natural piece and a few stories that looked like the artists on Mad had put them together on their tea breaks.

There probably isn't enough porn here to keep the trench coat brigade entertained for long, but being an adult's only collection, a few of the stories have fairly explicit sexual content, and in the case of a couple of strips we get some really dumb turd jokes. This is a shame because the 50 percent of stories that are entertaining like Avenue B Girls might be missed by the readers who don't like or can't obtain R18 material. Of the adult content only Demi-locks & the 3 Barezoids makes the grade as entertaining pornography.

In a Word: Directionless .
