sure.

I was amused to a degree by the dog-head-shaped shadow puppet. it recontextualizes plato and makes meta reference to the comic at the same time. but on the third hand it's trivial and somewhat obscure (which is worse than totally obscure). if I had a forth hand I might say all that is a positive "hip to my own postmodern self" thing warranting bonus points... so perhaps it's a bit of silly comic genius. or maybe it's just a slightly amusing bit of trivial wit concerning literary hoodoo that really has nothing at all do with with hell and I wonder why tat felt it necessary to take plato out of context just to make a funny, unless it was just to make this particular funny and this was his only chance to do so, in which case it's kind of sophmoric. but then again they are on a disneyesque tram ride through a make-believe version of hell with jason and beetlejuice and cthulhu leaping out of the water and... all in all, counting on all seven hands, I give it two thumbs down and five up.

I have criticised the comic. now shoot me.

I thought Pluto (not Plato) ruled the Underworld. I mean, that might explain the dog shadow puppet (except Cerberus had three heads); but then again, reasonablymad is probably right and it's all something very brainy that's beyond my reckoning.

Anyhow, I'm extra-amused by Jason jumping into Hannibal's arms; but what is that thing sitting next to Slick?

It almost looks like Fred Fredburger from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.
