Juuuuust a leetle too clever... - Josh
Some of the old Giffen/DeMatteis league stories are great -- triumphs of humor, drama (albeit "light" drama), characterization, pacing. And others are lame, lame like the jokes your unfunny 60-year-old uncle forwards to you. Maybe this issue had them guffawing at the DC offices, once upon a time... but by god, is it stupid by today's standards.
That said, stupid is not the same thing as COMPLETELY unfunny. So I give it a "4".
