    Reviewer Comments:
    One look at the title, and you have an idea of what type of content this book may serve. Hereís the thing: this book is not the type of book that I would normally buy, but itís a nice little retro art trip. This book wonít be for everybody, but fans of Red Sonja and Jungle Girl will really enjoy this indie title. This book reads like an anthology, but all of the stories are by the same author. Art duties are divided up between five very capable artists, and they all come together to present a rollicking throwback book thatís worth a look.

    One of the things thatís always a concern in anthology books or collections is that the quality of art can vastly vary from page to page. This team did a great job of bringing together a very solid showing that displayed a great range of styles to meet with the different stories. Stories range from trippy carnival tales to sci-fi stories reminiscent of 60ís and 70ís B-movies. Also included is a fantasy tale similar to Red Sonja and a modern tale set in the jungles of South America (drug lord from Panama included).

    This book is about having a good time, and youíre either on board or youíre not. However you feel about it, you certainly canít discount the quality of this teamís work.

    Get a great look at the art over at their store page at IndyPlanet.
