More newspaper headlines with Mr. Peewee, this time by Ferd Long. This run, however, eschews the narrative-driven comic strip format, focusing solely on the fantastic and misleading headlines. It's a shame, really; Mr. Peewee was an interesting little character, but here he's relegated to reaction shots. If the newspapers acted as the Greek Chorus to Peewee's pitfalls in his strip, here the tables have turned and it's Peewee who's relegated to standing to the rear of the stage and pointing out the jokes. Still, the headlines were always a fun part of the last feature, and they still are here.
