The Return of Stickman #1037 and The Comic Critic Reviews Zombieland

I’d hoped some fellow members of CLAW would also be able to make it, but it was just the small group of us. After the film, as we waited through the credits to see what sort of surprise might have been tacked on, we had the following discussion:

“Tell me what rating you would give it.”
“I’ll have to think about it.”
