S12:E7 - The New Wave No. 11 (1986)
The Concrete Garden
This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée jam a childhood's worth of after-school specials into 26 pages when they read The New Wave no. 11! In 1986, Eclipse Comics seemed to be making books solely to broadcast their disregard for the Comics Code Authority. Case in point: When the New Wave decides to take a day off from whatever it is they normally do to visit the circus, all of the show's dirty secrets will be exposed! From coke-snorting clowns to coke-snorting acrobats to at least one audience member who simply loves crack, the reputation of this once-proud tradition of abusing animals for human amusement may be tarnished forever! It's a dark and uncomfortable tale that will leave you with an important life lesson: The circus sucks. Seriously, the food's awful, the souvenirs are overpriced, you're just gonna leave disappointed.
