That’s why this towing service is so expensive.

“Cut To The Chase”

WRITER: Chris Duffy

INKER: Dave Hunt

Last time we saw a flying saucer picking up the Mystery Machine. It was actually the Professor, who built a working flying saucer. Then they follow the aliens to Area 51 and uncover their actual plot. Unfortunately we’re back to two stories an issue and Area 51 is a still-active military base. I don’t think a bunch of crooks could be using it as a base to steal technology. Still it’s not a bad ending.

Our second story has the gang on a tour of famous homes when they see a tar monster go into the home of the “Groovalicous Lovelies”, a 70s bad who also used to work on a discount Josie & The Pussycats show writing chase music. One of their songs became a one-hit wonder but they’ve fallen on hard times, but get re-inspired to make music when watching the monster chase the gang. It’s a nice tribute to the chase music from the old Hanna-Barbera mystery shows but it doesn’t work as well in comic form as it would in a TV show.

Overall this was a fairly decent comic. The conclusion to the story from last issue was okay and I respect the attempt of the second story. It’s not a must-own issue but not a bad one to check out.

    Everybody needs to enjoy any print comic book copies they have because I have read that new comic books won’t be released for months due to the coronavirus crisis. In fact, one article mentioned how comic companies will lose much money over these next few months, and as a result any new comics that are around after the crisis will only be posted online instead of in print form. Comic book stores are hurting real bad from these business closures that will likely stay in place at least through June 1st. It’s even been predicted that many comic book stores will end up closing their doors permanently. Pray for the owners and employees of the closed comic book stores throughout America and the world.

    I may never know how Masters of the Multiverse ends as issue #6 (the last issue) won/’t be coming out now on April 15th if ever!
