    Mark Russell, DC's secret best writer (after not-at-all-secret best Tom King, of course) is back with the vengeance. In Exit Stage Left, he tells a story of America of the 50's, a scary time of McCarthyism, the Cold War and the persecution and blacklisting of innocent people under fals...

    While the rest of DC is writing about people fighting crime in their underwear, Mark Russell is over in his own corner reinventing our childhood cartoons as sociopolitical diatribes. Snagglepuss is our way into some real life drama, now a gay playwright based in 1950's NYC and loosely ...

    Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles is a clever reinvention of an iconic 1960s cartoon character. Snagglepuss was originally a pink swishy wannabe actor and actual mountain lion in the Yogi the Bear cartoons beginning in 1959. This comic, set in 1953, casts Snagglepuss as a ...

    Hmm...I am really torn on what to rate this. This is probably more like a 4.5, but I couldn't go all the way to 5 stars. Since I read mostly TP, I have been waiting and anticipating this release for MONTHS - I absolutely loved Russell's Flintstone series and Snagglepuss sounded even be...

    I'm not sure how I feel about this collection. I liked it, but it was so bizarre. Having the cartoon character Snagglepuss be a stand in for Tennessee Williams is just such an odd idea. It works, in a weird way and there are some really great moments. ...

    This book is a dark look into a dark time period for creative types. it is beautifully done- I cried so much over issue 5 and 6. Closet sexuality, communism, and a look into depression that I never expected. I will be buying this trade in a few months to read it again. ...

    Woah... I'm just blown away at this adaptation of Snagglepuss We see Snagglepuss and other Hanna Barbera characters living in NYC in the 1950s. This run takes on the Red Scare, the gay rights movement, and art as it was in the '50s, with many political and cultural icons of that sce...

    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) A special thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this book! Though I feel like I watched a good amount of Hanna-Barbera cartoons as a child, one character that I don?t have specific memories of is Snagglepuss. I reme...

    A wonderful, humanistic story with lots of satire and a generous heap of touching lines, the Snaglepuss Chronicles are a prime example of the theory that DC Comics still has the potential to make good stuff, even if it's done as part of yet another multi-universe deal taking advantage ...

    DOROTHY PARKER IS IN A COMIC BOOK! Kind of fangirling here for a moment, but I love the fact Parker and the Algonquin Round Table are in this book. Only for a brief cameo, but they kid of set the stage for what this comic book is about. If you liked the Flintstones comic book, you'l...

    I'm kinda torn about this... on the one hand, it's a great period piece about the Red Scare, but on the other I almost would rather it NOT have been with the Hanna Barbera characters.. it was just kinda weird seeing them in the same panel with Marilyn Monroe and Joe Dimaggio. I'm al...

    After not enjoying DC and Mark Russell's The Flintstones, Vol. 1, I completely passed on this title in issue form, even though I thought the premise: Snagglepuss as a southern playwright during the age of McCarthyism, was an entertaining angle. That was a mistake. This book is pr...

    Subversive is the tone they were going for, and they nailed it, but since our media overlords have decreed that all portrayals of blackface are evil wrongthink, this volume must be condemned for its repeated displays of human actors made up as caricatures of other races. ...

    Heavens to Murgatroyd! Hanna-Barbera has permitted artists to reimagine its intellectual properties in ways that I don't think Warner Bros. or Disney ever would, and comics fans are all the better for it. In this gorgeous graphic novel, Snagglepuss the mountain lion is pitch-perfect as...

    Exit Stage Left: the Snagglepuss Chronicles, is a series that takes a very serious look at a ridiculous character. In this story, Snagglepuss is reimagined as a gay Southern playwrite who takes Broadway by storm in the 1950s, only to be target by the House Un-American Activities Commit...

    It's a serious accomplishment, what Russel has managed with his HB properties. Flintstones was an incredible examination of humanity as a whole, while Snagglepuss hones in on 1950's McCarthyism and the Committee of Un-American Activities. Exit Stage Left is a breathtaking character stu...

    This is the story of Snagglepuss, a playwright from Mississippi, making it big in New York City in the 1950s. He also happens to be gay. I love how much of history is woven into this miniseries, and makes the events of this fictional character that much more grounded in this alternate ...

    Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles is perfect in its timeliness and message. It takes center stage in its argument for the freedom to simply live our lives with integrity to ourselves. By revisiting the pink scare of the mid-20th century, it reminds us of the history of what h...

    Heavens to Murgatroyd, Mark Russell is at it again. Fresh off his successful reboot of The Flintstones, the master of making Hanna Barbera cartoons hip, fresh, complicated, and a mirror of our current society, Russell tackles the Trump era by looking back at the 1960's through McCarthy...

    Unlike the Flintstones and the other Hanna-Barbera imprints at DC, this comic was super bad-ass (wait I forgot about Scooby Apocolypse, that too was cool). The Snagglepuss Chronicles was unlike anything I expected. It's set in the 50s at the heart of McCarthyism and Snagglepuss is a pl...

    This was surprisingly good. And surprisingly poignant and apropos for the current times. The story centers on the McCarthy Era, the House Un-American Committee, the Hollywood "blacklist," and how it effected people in the LGBTQ community. Having this story feature realistic anthropomor...

    Kdyz jsem to zacal cist, tak se dostavil sok, vubec jsem necekal ze tohle bude socialni drama o homosexualite a ocerneni hercu a spisovatelu co davali do svych del kritiku. I pres prekvapeni prvotni se jedna o super ctivo ktere nabizi trefne komentate na tehdejsi i dnesni spolecnost a ...

    Snagglepuss reimagined as a Tennessee Williams type caught up in the House Unamerican Activities Committee trials of the 1950s. Huckleberry Hound as his gay-William-Faulkner best friend. Cameos by Augie Doggie, Quick Draw McGraw, and others. This one was far better than it had any rig...

    This was not for me at all. I don't know what other kind of reviews it got, but no. Thank you though. ...

    My mind is BLOWN. How the hell did he pull this off?? ...

    Bardzo mi si? podoba? tylko, ?e nie pokazuj? ?adnej pozytywnej postaci lesbijek albo drag queens, nie mówi?c o osobach biseksualnych. ...

    Excellent, even better than the reimagining of The Flintstones ...

    Probably deserves six stars. A comic about a nearly-forgotten cartoon character turns out to be a profoundly moving, thought-provoking historical drama. It's about Mccarthyism, sure, but also about the price you pay for both lacking and having personal integrity. This doesn't transcend...

    A wild concept that shouldn't work as well as it does. ...

    Subversive is the tone they were going for, and they nailed it, but since our media overlords have decreed that all portrayals of blackface are evil wrongthink, this volume must be condemned for its repeated displays of human actors made up as caricatures of other races. ...

    Heavens to Murgatroyd! Hanna-Barbera has permitted artists to reimagine its intellectual properties in ways that I don't think Warner Bros. or Disney ever would, and comics fans are all the better for it. In this gorgeous graphic novel, Snagglepuss the mountain lion is pitch-perfect as...

    Exit Stage Left: the Snagglepuss Chronicles, is a series that takes a very serious look at a ridiculous character. In this story, Snagglepuss is reimagined as a gay Southern playwrite who takes Broadway by storm in the 1950s, only to be target by the House Un-American Activities Commit...

    It's a serious accomplishment, what Russel has managed with his HB properties. Flintstones was an incredible examination of humanity as a whole, while Snagglepuss hones in on 1950's McCarthyism and the Committee of Un-American Activities. Exit Stage Left is a breathtaking character stu...

    This is the story of Snagglepuss, a playwright from Mississippi, making it big in New York City in the 1950s. He also happens to be gay. I love how much of history is woven into this miniseries, and makes the events of this fictional character that much more grounded in this alternate ...

    Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles is perfect in its timeliness and message. It takes center stage in its argument for the freedom to simply live our lives with integrity to ourselves. By revisiting the pink scare of the mid-20th century, it reminds us of the history of what h...

    Mark Russell, DC's secret best writer (after not-at-all-secret best Tom King, of course) is back with the vengeance. In Exit Stage Left, he tells a story of America of the 50's, a scary time of McCarthyism, the Cold War and the persecution and blacklisting of innocent people under fals...

    While the rest of DC is writing about people fighting crime in their underwear, Mark Russell is over in his own corner reinventing our childhood cartoons as sociopolitical diatribes. Snagglepuss is our way into some real life drama, now a gay playwright based in 1950's NYC and loosely ...

    Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles is a clever reinvention of an iconic 1960s cartoon character. Snagglepuss was originally a pink swishy wannabe actor and actual mountain lion in the Yogi the Bear cartoons beginning in 1959. This comic, set in 1953, casts Snagglepuss as a ...

    Hmm...I am really torn on what to rate this. This is probably more like a 4.5, but I couldn't go all the way to 5 stars. Since I read mostly TP, I have been waiting and anticipating this release for MONTHS - I absolutely loved Russell's Flintstone series and Snagglepuss sounded even be...

    I'm not sure how I feel about this collection. I liked it, but it was so bizarre. Having the cartoon character Snagglepuss be a stand in for Tennessee Williams is just such an odd idea. It works, in a weird way and there are some really great moments. ...

    This book is a dark look into a dark time period for creative types. it is beautifully done- I cried so much over issue 5 and 6. Closet sexuality, communism, and a look into depression that I never expected. I will be buying this trade in a few months to read it again. ...

    Woah... I'm just blown away at this adaptation of Snagglepuss We see Snagglepuss and other Hanna Barbera characters living in NYC in the 1950s. This run takes on the Red Scare, the gay rights movement, and art as it was in the '50s, with many political and cultural icons of that sce...

    A wonderful, humanistic story with lots of satire and a generous heap of touching lines, the Snaglepuss Chronicles are a prime example of the theory that DC Comics still has the potential to make good stuff, even if it's done as part of yet another multi-universe deal taking advantage ...

    DOROTHY PARKER IS IN A COMIC BOOK! Kind of fangirling here for a moment, but I love the fact Parker and the Algonquin Round Table are in this book. Only for a brief cameo, but they kid of set the stage for what this comic book is about. If you liked the Flintstones comic book, you'l...

    Snagglepuss reimagined as a Tennessee Williams type caught up in the House Unamerican Activities Committee trials of the 1950s. Huckleberry Hound as his gay-William-Faulkner best friend. Cameos by Augie Doggie, Quick Draw McGraw, and others. This one was far better than it had any rig...

    Bardzo mi si? podoba? tylko, ?e nie pokazuj? ?adnej pozytywnej postaci lesbijek albo drag queens, nie mówi?c o osobach biseksualnych. ...

    Excellent, even better than the reimagining of The Flintstones ...

    Probably deserves six stars. A comic about a nearly-forgotten cartoon character turns out to be a profoundly moving, thought-provoking historical drama. It's about Mccarthyism, sure, but also about the price you pay for both lacking and having personal integrity. This doesn't transcend...

    A wild concept that shouldn't work as well as it does. ...

    This was so not what I was expecting. I remembered Snagglepuss from my childhood as a rather vain and silly cartoon character. Now I will remember him in a completely different way. Mark Russell has used S.P., Huckleberry Hound, Quickdraw McGraw and others to create a world in which an...

    Mark Russell, DC's secret best writer (after not-at-all-secret best Tom King, of course) is back with the vengeance. In Exit Stage Left, he tells a story of America of the 50's, a scary time of McCarthyism, the Cold War and the persecution and blacklisting of innocent people under fals...

    While the rest of DC is writing about people fighting crime in their underwear, Mark Russell is over in his own corner reinventing our childhood cartoons as sociopolitical diatribes. Snagglepuss is our way into some real life drama, now a gay playwright based in 1950's NYC and loosely ...

    Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles is a clever reinvention of an iconic 1960s cartoon character. Snagglepuss was originally a pink swishy wannabe actor and actual mountain lion in the Yogi the Bear cartoons beginning in 1959. This comic, set in 1953, casts Snagglepuss as a ...

    Hmm...I am really torn on what to rate this. This is probably more like a 4.5, but I couldn't go all the way to 5 stars. Since I read mostly TP, I have been waiting and anticipating this release for MONTHS - I absolutely loved Russell's Flintstone series and Snagglepuss sounded even be...

    I'm not sure how I feel about this collection. I liked it, but it was so bizarre. Having the cartoon character Snagglepuss be a stand in for Tennessee Williams is just such an odd idea. It works, in a weird way and there are some really great moments. ...

    This book is a dark look into a dark time period for creative types. it is beautifully done- I cried so much over issue 5 and 6. Closet sexuality, communism, and a look into depression that I never expected. I will be buying this trade in a few months to read it again. ...

    Woah... I'm just blown away at this adaptation of Snagglepuss We see Snagglepuss and other Hanna Barbera characters living in NYC in the 1950s. This run takes on the Red Scare, the gay rights movement, and art as it was in the '50s, with many political and cultural icons of that sce...

    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) A special thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this book! Though I feel like I watched a good amount of Hanna-Barbera cartoons as a child, one character that I don?t have specific memories of is Snagglepuss. I reme...

    A wonderful, humanistic story with lots of satire and a generous heap of touching lines, the Snaglepuss Chronicles are a prime example of the theory that DC Comics still has the potential to make good stuff, even if it's done as part of yet another multi-universe deal taking advantage ...

    DOROTHY PARKER IS IN A COMIC BOOK! Kind of fangirling here for a moment, but I love the fact Parker and the Algonquin Round Table are in this book. Only for a brief cameo, but they kid of set the stage for what this comic book is about. If you liked the Flintstones comic book, you'l...

    I'm kinda torn about this... on the one hand, it's a great period piece about the Red Scare, but on the other I almost would rather it NOT have been with the Hanna Barbera characters.. it was just kinda weird seeing them in the same panel with Marilyn Monroe and Joe Dimaggio. I'm al...

    After not enjoying DC and Mark Russell's The Flintstones, Vol. 1, I completely passed on this title in issue form, even though I thought the premise: Snagglepuss as a southern playwright during the age of McCarthyism, was an entertaining angle. That was a mistake. This book is pr...

    Subversive is the tone they were going for, and they nailed it, but since our media overlords have decreed that all portrayals of blackface are evil wrongthink, this volume must be condemned for its repeated displays of human actors made up as caricatures of other races. ...

    Heavens to Murgatroyd! Hanna-Barbera has permitted artists to reimagine its intellectual properties in ways that I don't think Warner Bros. or Disney ever would, and comics fans are all the better for it. In this gorgeous graphic novel, Snagglepuss the mountain lion is pitch-perfect as...

    Exit Stage Left: the Snagglepuss Chronicles, is a series that takes a very serious look at a ridiculous character. In this story, Snagglepuss is reimagined as a gay Southern playwrite who takes Broadway by storm in the 1950s, only to be target by the House Un-American Activities Commit...

    It's a serious accomplishment, what Russel has managed with his HB properties. Flintstones was an incredible examination of humanity as a whole, while Snagglepuss hones in on 1950's McCarthyism and the Committee of Un-American Activities. Exit Stage Left is a breathtaking character stu...

    This is the story of Snagglepuss, a playwright from Mississippi, making it big in New York City in the 1950s. He also happens to be gay. I love how much of history is woven into this miniseries, and makes the events of this fictional character that much more grounded in this alternate ...

    Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles is perfect in its timeliness and message. It takes center stage in its argument for the freedom to simply live our lives with integrity to ourselves. By revisiting the pink scare of the mid-20th century, it reminds us of the history of what h...

    Heavens to Murgatroyd, Mark Russell is at it again. Fresh off his successful reboot of The Flintstones, the master of making Hanna Barbera cartoons hip, fresh, complicated, and a mirror of our current society, Russell tackles the Trump era by looking back at the 1960's through McCarthy...

    Unlike the Flintstones and the other Hanna-Barbera imprints at DC, this comic was super bad-ass (wait I forgot about Scooby Apocolypse, that too was cool). The Snagglepuss Chronicles was unlike anything I expected. It's set in the 50s at the heart of McCarthyism and Snagglepuss is a pl...

    Mark Russell, DC's secret best writer (after not-at-all-secret best Tom King, of course) is back with the vengeance. In Exit Stage Left, he tells a story of America of the 50's, a scary time of McCarthyism, the Cold War and the persecution and blacklisting of innocent people under fals...

    While the rest of DC is writing about people fighting crime in their underwear, Mark Russell is over in his own corner reinventing our childhood cartoons as sociopolitical diatribes. Snagglepuss is our way into some real life drama, now a gay playwright based in 1950's NYC and loosely ...

    Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles is a clever reinvention of an iconic 1960s cartoon character. Snagglepuss was originally a pink swishy wannabe actor and actual mountain lion in the Yogi the Bear cartoons beginning in 1959. This comic, set in 1953, casts Snagglepuss as a ...

    Hmm...I am really torn on what to rate this. This is probably more like a 4.5, but I couldn't go all the way to 5 stars. Since I read mostly TP, I have been waiting and anticipating this release for MONTHS - I absolutely loved Russell's Flintstone series and Snagglepuss sounded even be...

    I'm not sure how I feel about this collection. I liked it, but it was so bizarre. Having the cartoon character Snagglepuss be a stand in for Tennessee Williams is just such an odd idea. It works, in a weird way and there are some really great moments. ...

    This book is a dark look into a dark time period for creative types. it is beautifully done- I cried so much over issue 5 and 6. Closet sexuality, communism, and a look into depression that I never expected. I will be buying this trade in a few months to read it again. ...

    Woah... I'm just blown away at this adaptation of Snagglepuss We see Snagglepuss and other Hanna Barbera characters living in NYC in the 1950s. This run takes on the Red Scare, the gay rights movement, and art as it was in the '50s, with many political and cultural icons of that sce...

    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) A special thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this book! Though I feel like I watched a good amount of Hanna-Barbera cartoons as a child, one character that I don?t have specific memories of is Snagglepuss. I reme...

    DOROTHY PARKER IS IN A COMIC BOOK! Kind of fangirling here for a moment, but I love the fact Parker and the Algonquin Round Table are in this book. Only for a brief cameo, but they kid of set the stage for what this comic book is about. If you liked the Flintstones comic book, you'l...

    I'm kinda torn about this... on the one hand, it's a great period piece about the Red Scare, but on the other I almost would rather it NOT have been with the Hanna Barbera characters.. it was just kinda weird seeing them in the same panel with Marilyn Monroe and Joe Dimaggio. I'm al...

    After not enjoying DC and Mark Russell's The Flintstones, Vol. 1, I completely passed on this title in issue form, even though I thought the premise: Snagglepuss as a southern playwright during the age of McCarthyism, was an entertaining angle. That was a mistake. This book is pr...

    Subversive is the tone they were going for, and they nailed it, but since our media overlords have decreed that all portrayals of blackface are evil wrongthink, this volume must be condemned for its repeated displays of human actors made up as caricatures of other races. ...

    Heavens to Murgatroyd! Hanna-Barbera has permitted artists to reimagine its intellectual properties in ways that I don't think Warner Bros. or Disney ever would, and comics fans are all the better for it. In this gorgeous graphic novel, Snagglepuss the mountain lion is pitch-perfect as...

    Exit Stage Left: the Snagglepuss Chronicles, is a series that takes a very serious look at a ridiculous character. In this story, Snagglepuss is reimagined as a gay Southern playwrite who takes Broadway by storm in the 1950s, only to be target by the House Un-American Activities Commit...

    It's a serious accomplishment, what Russel has managed with his HB properties. Flintstones was an incredible examination of humanity as a whole, while Snagglepuss hones in on 1950's McCarthyism and the Committee of Un-American Activities. Exit Stage Left is a breathtaking character stu...

    This is the story of Snagglepuss, a playwright from Mississippi, making it big in New York City in the 1950s. He also happens to be gay. I love how much of history is woven into this miniseries, and makes the events of this fictional character that much more grounded in this alternate ...

    Unlike the Flintstones and the other Hanna-Barbera imprints at DC, this comic was super bad-ass (wait I forgot about Scooby Apocolypse, that too was cool). The Snagglepuss Chronicles was unlike anything I expected. It's set in the 50s at the heart of McCarthyism and Snagglepuss is a pl...

    It's a serious accomplishment, what Russel has managed with his HB properties. Flintstones was an incredible examination of humanity as a whole, while Snagglepuss hones in on 1950's McCarthyism and the Committee of Un-American Activities. Exit Stage Left is a breathtaking character stu...

    This is the story of Snagglepuss, a playwright from Mississippi, making it big in New York City in the 1950s. He also happens to be gay. I love how much of history is woven into this miniseries, and makes the events of this fictional character that much more grounded in this alternate ...

    Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles is perfect in its timeliness and message. It takes center stage in its argument for the freedom to simply live our lives with integrity to ourselves. By revisiting the pink scare of the mid-20th century, it reminds us of the history of what h...

    Heavens to Murgatroyd, Mark Russell is at it again. Fresh off his successful reboot of The Flintstones, the master of making Hanna Barbera cartoons hip, fresh, complicated, and a mirror of our current society, Russell tackles the Trump era by looking back at the 1960's through McCarthy...

    Unlike the Flintstones and the other Hanna-Barbera imprints at DC, this comic was super bad-ass (wait I forgot about Scooby Apocolypse, that too was cool). The Snagglepuss Chronicles was unlike anything I expected. It's set in the 50s at the heart of McCarthyism and Snagglepuss is a pl...

    This was surprisingly good. And surprisingly poignant and apropos for the current times. The story centers on the McCarthy Era, the House Un-American Committee, the Hollywood "blacklist," and how it effected people in the LGBTQ community. Having this story feature realistic anthropomor...

    Kdyz jsem to zacal cist, tak se dostavil sok, vubec jsem necekal ze tohle bude socialni drama o homosexualite a ocerneni hercu a spisovatelu co davali do svych del kritiku. I pres prekvapeni prvotni se jedna o super ctivo ktere nabizi trefne komentate na tehdejsi i dnesni spolecnost a ...

    Snagglepuss reimagined as a Tennessee Williams type caught up in the House Unamerican Activities Committee trials of the 1950s. Huckleberry Hound as his gay-William-Faulkner best friend. Cameos by Augie Doggie, Quick Draw McGraw, and others. This one was far better than it had any rig...

    This was not for me at all. I don't know what other kind of reviews it got, but no. Thank you though. ...

    Mark Russell, DC's secret best writer (after not-at-all-secret best Tom King, of course) is back with the vengeance. In Exit Stage Left, he tells a story of America of the 50's, a scary time of McCarthyism, the Cold War and the persecution and blacklisting of innocent people under fals...

    While the rest of DC is writing about people fighting crime in their underwear, Mark Russell is over in his own corner reinventing our childhood cartoons as sociopolitical diatribes. Snagglepuss is our way into some real life drama, now a gay playwright based in 1950's NYC and loosely ...

    Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles is a clever reinvention of an iconic 1960s cartoon character. Snagglepuss was originally a pink swishy wannabe actor and actual mountain lion in the Yogi the Bear cartoons beginning in 1959. This comic, set in 1953, casts Snagglepuss as a ...

    Hmm...I am really torn on what to rate this. This is probably more like a 4.5, but I couldn't go all the way to 5 stars. Since I read mostly TP, I have been waiting and anticipating this release for MONTHS - I absolutely loved Russell's Flintstone series and Snagglepuss sounded even be...

    I'm not sure how I feel about this collection. I liked it, but it was so bizarre. Having the cartoon character Snagglepuss be a stand in for Tennessee Williams is just such an odd idea. It works, in a weird way and there are some really great moments. ...

    This book is a dark look into a dark time period for creative types. it is beautifully done- I cried so much over issue 5 and 6. Closet sexuality, communism, and a look into depression that I never expected. I will be buying this trade in a few months to read it again. ...

    Woah... I'm just blown away at this adaptation of Snagglepuss We see Snagglepuss and other Hanna Barbera characters living in NYC in the 1950s. This run takes on the Red Scare, the gay rights movement, and art as it was in the '50s, with many political and cultural icons of that sce...

    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) A special thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this book! Though I feel like I watched a good amount of Hanna-Barbera cartoons as a child, one character that I don?t have specific memories of is Snagglepuss. I reme...
