Showcase Presents: Ambush Bug - Keith Giffen, Robert Loren Fleming, Paul Kupperberg, Paul Levitz, Robert Oksner, Carmine Infantino Ambush Bug is one of those unique characters ... an actually funny, fourth-wall-breaking kinds guy. This Showcase Presents volume features all of his appearances from the 20th century. It's hilarious stuff, but very in-joke-ish; you have to be a comic fan to get a lot of the references, and being a fan in the tumultuous eighties would also help. Barring ever getting the Absolute Thriller book we deserve, this is Robert Loren Fleming's magnum opus, and some of Keith Giffen's best stuff to boot (Great Darkness Saga not withstanding).
