'ENSIGN SMURF' pt. 1 by Stanley Lieber

Stanley Lieber is a comics factory, a house of ideas, a bullpen bullet, a Herzog documentary.  His 21st century comic, Massive Fictions, peers unflinchingly into Prince’s vaults and returns with maps of the sun.  You can download MF at his site.  He’s compiling a comics anthology called FAKE which may contain the secrets of the internet’s true birthday.  FAKE also includes work by fellow artist, Pete Toms, who did the colors for Ensign Smurf pt. 1, which you are about to read.  Here’s part 2!
