As I mentioned in the overview, there are some halfway decent stories and artwork in Shock Therapy #1 (or rather, Shok Therapy #1 as it is unintentionally titled here), but it's mostly snippets of prose and panels or pages of illustration. Taken as a whole, this book is actually pretty crappy. Howard Priestley and Tony Webster could both draw; they just hadn't attained a very polished look when this book came out. However, I give them kudos for the enthusiasm they show in the book and their willingness to admit their own weaknesses.
