Mondays are Blue Again
The first issue of the new BLUE MONDAY miniseries by writer-artists Chynna Clugston is out, after a multi-year hiatus for the BLUE MONDAY characters. Clugston seems to have benefited from the time away from the series, because her already-impressive art is sharper than ever. It shows more attention to design and to balance of whites and blacks in the interior art. As for the story, Clugston continues to depict early-90's teens obsessed with mid-80's music who are relatively smart, but nevertheless do dumb things -- much like real teens. That judgment part of the brain takes a while to develop. Highly recommended.
