What do ancient Egyptians, talking tunas, women with beards and a chocolate-covered polar ice cap all have in common?
Apparently enough to cram them together in the latest “what the …?” effort by off-beat writer Grant Morrison (JLA, New X-Men).
In the simplest terms, Seaguy is a story of a man in a world without heroes, who sets off to do a brave thing to impress a girl.
But in another effort that is somewhere between so eccentrically genius that it’s inaccessible to the common reader and just plain nonsensical, Morrison departs from any kind of logic and just vomits random ideas out for three issues.
Toronto’s Cameron Stewart does his best to bring all this together with his usual excellent art, but not even the best drawing of a flying, talking tuna can save the notion that it’s a flying, talking tuna.
