Shocking Humor Unbound!!!

We’ll call this the first entry in what will be many on the topic of underrated comic books. Ralph Snart is a masterpiece of American con jobs.

Here are some particularly unnecessary pages of original art from the three-issue series MARRIED… WITH CHILDREN 2099. No, I’m not making that title up. 2099. Highly collectible? I guess. Bid hard, kids! Bid hard!
