The Modern Stone Age Family

Mark Russell & Steve Pugh “The Flintstones, Vol 1” (DC Comics, 2017)

Let me just say that this is my new jam.

Back in the day, the Flintstones were riffing on contemporary culture. Russell keeps that idea, updating it of course for our times. It is biting satire, critiquing bigotry, warmongering, and consumerism, just to name a few.

While the issues themselves are primary self-contained, there are some through lines that slowly develop.

When I first heard how good this was, I admit I found it hard to believe.  But they weren’t lying! Read it! Tell your friends! I can’t wait for the second volume.
