The 40 Years of Comics Project - Day 868: Gremlin Trouble #19, 1999

I hope you'll forgive this, but my wrists are both quite sore today, so I won't be saying much. Today's comic puts the small people back in touch with the human world. I'm starting to be more and more intrigued by the setting. It's starting to feel like a manga version of Ralph Bakshi's Wizards in some ways.

Art's still a bit fan-service-y, but there's an aspect to it that is slightly ironic - like it's aware of exactly what it's doing, and is celebrating in its ridiculousness. Not unlike the best superhero comics do, really.

To be continued.
