This comic book is a fresh reminder that simplicity is very effective. This throwback styled comic uses less dialogue, more direct but minimal storytelling and few colors to bring to life this woeful tale of the age-old triangle. This story involves a beautiful woman, her love for her man and her struggle against the other woman. Plus, ya know, there’s radioactive stuff, foul language, sarcasm, sex and humor.
So, I ask you…what’s not to love????
The first thing I noticed about this comic was the throwback style and I was immediately taken by its cover art. Then, I noticed that this whole thing was done by one guy…mad respect. But, the simplicity…genius!!! Not only does Heshka use the most basic color palette, he also writes the story seemingly using as few lines as possible. These two things coupled together are the core of the throwback feel.
Here we have a beautiful woman, changed forever (along with everything else) by radioactive material into a frog-woman. And she tries with all she has to make her husband happy at home but, soon his eyes wander to the neighbor lady next door. Oh, that ugly situation of a scorned woman that every man dreads! Only now it’s a scorned radioactively altered frog wife. Is that something, well, someone you’d want to have pissed at you? I think not.
So, what’s a frog wife to do? With her broken heart and philandering husband…

This comic has a quick pace. It’s well written with perfectly placed puns that are absolutely hysterical. Fantastic artwork and adult humor round out the whole issue. It definitely left me wanting more to read, it was that enjoyable. I highly recommend this one, especially for classic comic fans.
