Yuck! #1

 
[32pages, digest size, edited by Mr. Slime, sam_drane@hotmail.com ]

It's always great to see a new comics anthology pop up (especially an Aussie one) and this looked real promising, with a front cover by Ross Radiation and back cover by Glenn Smith. Alas,what lies between. Since the comic is called Yuck!, editor Mr. Slime no doubt instructed his contributors to come up with something YUCKY! Something to make the reader squeal, 'Eww, gross!' Sad to report, the only people this stuff is gonna gross out will be Girl Guides and your grandmother. It's not all lame though. 'How I Met Your Mother' by Ed Traquino is excellent, featuring a Lovecraftian monstrosity seen by all as a perfectly charming and handsome young man. The other is Matt Emery's strip 'Rapist Rapist', where the punishment fits the crime.
Well, it's only the first issue. It can only improve. I hope to report that result when Yuck! #2 appears.

From the pages you posted, one would think this mag would really kick ass. Pity that it doesn't.

From what you've posted there, this looks amazing. It's too bad the rest of it isn't as good, because I'd be ordering right now.

Hey, that's just my opinion. What do I know? Don't make me feel bad! Aw, now I feel rotten. I think it's mostly miss, but the few hits are worth it (especially that one by Ed Traquino - I gotta get that dude in Blackguard) and I'll definitely be chasing up #2.

hm .....
So, any official website I can find this one on ? Also, how could I get my hands on it considering I'm from Europe ? I understand the comic is an Australian release from what you wrote...

cheers

Re: hm .....
Best idea would be to email Mr Slime: sam_drane@hotmail.com and ask him how you can score a copy. (And yes, it's an Australian comic.)
Cheers.
