REVIEW SCORE 6
The second issue of Monday Funnies introduces a second color (red!) to the printing and doubles the number of pages from the first, but most important of all, it introduces my favorite strip in the series, "Business Man"! The initial strip from Mark Rademacher certainly whets your appetite for much more. Alas, we will only get two more installments of the series.

Monday Funnies
#2 also features improved artwork from several contributors and (since it has twice the pages) more cartoons from more creators. Monday Funnies doesn't get a great review score because, like so many underground anthologies, the weaker work brings the score down, but the parts of it that stand out are certainly worth reading.

It is currently unknown how many copies of this comic tabloid were printed. I would say probably not more than a couple thousand. It has not been reprinted.
