This is the shortest comic I've reviewed so far with only one panel, but what they manage to pack into that one panel is a stunning feat of comic craftsmanship. The main character is a nameless and moustached waiter, elegantly presenting the reader an abstract meal in the shape of the words Top Shelf. The artwork has a nice pop art style, with the blue and orange coloring attracting even the casual reader in for a closer look. While the writing, or more accurately lack of writing, makes it a brief offering it acts as a good base for the readers enjoyment and hey it's free!

In a Word: Absorbing.
