Is this to be the final issue of the Flintstones?

According to Professor Sargon, it is he has done the calculations on his state of the art computer and worked out that an asteroid is on its way!!

A more serious issue this time for Fred and the gang with some pretty big topics being touched upon, loneliness, mass hysteria and day to day stress all being seen throughout Bedrock, it is not however without its humour! my personal favourite was the Mothadone clinic and I can’t not mention the sex!! my God how they got away with so much scratching going on in one issue!!

I’m so glad that they are keeping in one of my favourite parts of the cartoons where the appliances get their say, this time it’s the bowling ball and the vacuum cleaner having a rather touching moment and coming clean with how much they mean to each other.

This comic really easily captures the essence of the cartoons in humour and dynamics but with more of Bedrocks residents coming to the foreground to share their story which gives it a more rounded appeal and opens up much more room for storylines that don’t necessarily need Fred or Barney in the lead role  awesome work

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
