Comments: Doris Danger is a photojournalist who wantsto prove giant monsters exist. The art style here will definitely remind you of the "King", Jack Kirby.
"Poo-Twah!" This story has a Giant Monster loose in Philadelphia. The dialogue is done in such a style to be humorious beyond belief. It is also done from the point of view that it is real. The way it is written to talk to the reader as well will entertain. This section focuses on Doris and other characters she interacts with.
"Wa-Hooie-Wah!: When Beats The Slavery Drum!" Are people turning into Giant Monsters. The stories focus on the people more than the monsters they are like background.
The pin-ups of Giant Swamp Monsters are gorgeous to see they are a feast for the eyes and artisticly inclined monster lover.
Lee, Lieber, Kirby and Ayers are all mentioned in this comic as inspiration for it. They were and are all greats in the field of comics. The tribute here to them is a wonderful show of respect.
Doris travels the world going on all kinds of adventures and meeting all kinds of people and beings. Plus of course Giant Monsters. Doris even travels into space.
All the Giant Monsters presented here show an imagination. The names for these creatures as well are not something you will encounter anywhere else.
Beautiful art, a great story make for one exciting imaginative filled comic.
