Reception

I don't think Chris Jordan is even trying to copy, in the second puzzler, that which flitted through the airwaves, but that's quite all right. His "ultra-hip" artwork--something you may find in the cartoons of non-gritty small press books--brings the essence of the gang to Las Vegas.

Writer Joe Edkin plugs in some imaginative lyrics to the Elvis tunes that accompany the exploration into the disappearance of Alvin Parsely--ouch, but perhaps most ingenious is how he fools you with a literal red-herring. I don't know I might have been sleepy : ). He may not trick you, but you'll still enjoy the ride. [1]
