Well, it isn’t the worst idea Pete’s ever had, that’s for damn sure. While FW has long been hailed for being the very first comic strip to incorporate radiation into its stories, it’s refreshing to see it being used for laughs for a change. At long last Batom has harnessed the mighty power of the atom to generate comedy instead of using it to generate those annual puff-piece interviews in the Akron Daily Bugle Sunday supplement. Although “comedy” might be overstating things a bit.
I do like how Chester is apparently leaning on the potentially deadly box, absorbing its mysterious powers in a desperate attempt to do whatever a marketing team and legal department would do. If the casualties are limited to these four nitwits, no harm done.
