It's 1953. While the United States is locked in a nuclear arms race with the Soviet Union, the gay Southern playwright known as Snagglepuss is the toast of Broadway. But success has made him a target. As he plans for his next hit play, Snagglepuss becomes the focus of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. And when powerful forces align to purge show business of its most subversive voices, no one is safe! Drama! Humor! Tragedy! It all starts in Exit Stage LEFT: The Snagglepuss Chronicles #1, a new miniseries from the writer who brought you the Flintstones. RATED T+

If you enjoyed, Prez and the Flintstones, this not them. It's far less populated with visual whimsy, although it's not entirely bereft of it either. Have no fear, it has humor, but it's mostly better classified as wit. As a bitter, drunken Dorothy Parker might have said, "You know, those snide asides that put a twinkle in the eyes of most pink play-writing felines."
It's an impressive beginning to what might be one of the most subversive books coming out this year.
Highly recommended for fans of the films All About Eve, Dorothy Parker and the Vicious Circle, and The Good, the Bad, and Huckleberry Hound.
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
