Here’s my brief review of Truth, Justin, and the American Way.
- Co-written by Scott Kurtz of PvP fame.
- Lovingly rips off The Greatest American Hero, complete with cheesy theme song.
- Giuseppe Ferrario‘s artwork/style – The man brings to mind Sergio Argones and his characterization of Justin makes me think of Groo, The Wanderer the last great humorous comic book I read regularly.
- Sly references – I loved all the “hidden” cameos in the book: Fred Sanford and the like.
- Five Issues is not enough. Seriously. I’m going to want more.
- Considering my abiding love for humorous comics (notably Groo), I’d love to see more subtle flourishes.
- Have I mentioned it’s only five issues?
- I truly hope there are more issues later on and that Image keeps supporting humorous creators and funny comic books. We (I) need them.

I liked it, but I’m no judge of quality or art, I just know what I like, as the saying goes.
