The Door is one of those comics that has a cover that perks interest. See, there is this old guy looking out a crack in the door and the door is in the middle of the southwest desert. Once you begin reading the story you are introduced to the character at a conference for time travel. The old guy is professor Bledfill and he is the leader of the group. Then there is Suzie a bio-engineered blond bombshell, an Emu, and the head of Abe Lincoln. Together they call themselves “The Temporal Investigation Squad.” The gist of their time travel is that they bio-engineered the brain of Hitler and put it in the body of a young Aryan body and sent it to the old west. In all actuality, it is an excuse to go back in time and gamble. See, they go back to kill Hitler and then stick around to cheat at poker. Pretty clever, right? I’ve got to tell you that this works well on a comedy level. Everything that these goofballs do is funny, and when they get done with the old west, they bio-engineer Elvis and go back in time to set Watergate straight for Nixon. Of course, Elvis is there for the detour to Vegas. So, like all the other comics, I’ve got to wait it out for issue number two to see how the Vegas road trip turns out and what set of events they set up for the next trip - possibly a bio-engineered Hoffa in old mafia Chicago for a back ally game of craps? The art work is pretty good on this one too. The way things appear and disappear is cool and the different characters work well. In a paper sack, this one should be kept with the bread, so as not to crush a good book, because good, funny indie comics are starting to be hard to come by. (Epoch, 401 N.
