AVERAGE SCORE 8
There's actually very little in the debut issue of Brain Fantasy #1 that could not have been published in a mainstream comic book. There are four featured stories, and I particularly like the last one by David Parker and Rick Shubb, "Where Do We Go From Here?" The front cover art is pretty cool, though I would've preferred a more gruesome character than the gloopy dude on center stage here. Or maybe some hot damsel-in-distress chick with her clothes melting off.
