AVERAGE SCORE 10
Arcade #6 is perhaps the most enjoyable issues of the series. Robert Crumb returns to his wicked satire after a couple of maudlin and historic excursions in the past two issues with "Those Cute Little Bearzy Wearzies." Justin Green is also in good form with "Dad for a Day."

S. Clay Wilson, Aline Kominsky and Spain Rodriguez all provide solid contributions to this issue, which also memorializes the unfortunate and tragically youthful passing of Willy Murphy with a portfolio of some of his fine comedic stylings.

HISTORICAL FOOTNOTES:
It is currently unknown how many copies of this comic book were printed. However, the Print Mint printed about 20,000 copies of issue #5 and 25,000 of issue #7, so it seems likely the print run on issue #6 was either 20,000 and 25,000 copies. It has not been reprinted.
