The Comic Critic Reviews King of California and The Return of Stickman #884

Silly pratfalls and slapstick have their place, but don't need to be in every comedy. Sometimes you want a thinking comedy. The laughs don't have to come from punch lines, pies to the face, or other obvious juvenile behavior. Sometimes you just want quirky, seasoned with a bit of sad and a whiff of aggravation. King of California delivers on those fronts. For a take-this-home impulse item from the library while I was in the midst of a Netflix lull, it proved to be a wonderful surprise.

The Comic Critic and The Return of Stickman is a product of Monlux Illustration, “Home of the Creative Mind!”™
