Double Review: Three Stooges Astronuts and Laurel & Hardy #1
Laurel & Hardy #1 (it has yet to be seen if this series will have normal numbering or will follow in the Stooges' footsteps by having all #1 one-shots) presents three stories, all in color. The first one written by S.A Check, is well done, and I might hazard to say his style may be a better fit for Stan and Ollie than the Stooges. The second story is written by Jordan Gershowitz, and captures the feel and tone of the classic Hal Roach two-reelers. Both stories are drawn by Jorge Pacheco, who perfectly interprets the classic Larry Harmon character designs with a slightly more modern look. The third story is a classic Larry Harmon-era reprint and holds its own opposite the new material. This issue earns a B+.
