Seaguy Slaves of Mickey Eye #2

Written by Grant Morrison
Art by Cameron Stewart

Once again, things don't really make much sense on the surface, but there is a strong internal logic to this comic. Seaguy is rescued from the mental hospital, and set up with a secret identity - El Macho, the bull-dresser. It soon becomes clear though that Seaguy's friends aren't really his friends, and that the only person he should trust is the dead tuna that keeps appearing out of the corner of his eye. Like I said, all perfectly logical.

Stewart's art here makes even the weirdest scenes seem plausible, and the book mostly feels like Morrison just enjoying himself after spending way too much time on editorially-mandated commercial cross-overs.
