The Comic Critic Reviews: The Last of Sheila. And The Return of Stickman #1093

I remember seeing The Last of Sheila on Showtime a few years after it was released. I recalled a number of scenes, but not the full storyline. Watching it again a few days ago, my faulty memory wasn’t helped by the series of sudden twists the plot takes. Viewers are lulled into a perspective on events that proves to be false. Whether or not you enjoy this film depends on how much you can tie clues together. I’ll give the director credit for not pointing to each clue with a neon sign, so viewers actually have to use their brains.

And another guest strip by Jake Morris. Thanks, Jake.
