Comment: McKenzie’s story is not successful, but it has got anyway an interesting inside drive. And if not fresh, but a different portrait of mummy’s day. Corben is in his best, in this small story, in rare face close-ups (the lower parts of pg 1, 2, and 4). Figures in panels are too far and small. Page 2 is more or less successful and harmonic.
