The Mysterious Secret of the Valuable Treasure: Stories
by Jack Pendarvis, a review from Esquire by Anna Godbersen.
"To begin at the beginning, the first story in Jack Pendarvis's hilarious collection bears the title 'Sex Devil.' This is the tale of an unfortunate fellow with a cleft palate and the name Randy, who becomes suave and avenges himself against his childhood enemies; the story is in the form of an unsigned, but hopeful, pitch to a comic-book publisher for a comic book about Randy, a.k.a. Sex Devil. It is, as you can easily imagine, a real crowd-pleaser of a story. But Pendarvis has more 'up his sleeve' here than merely pleasing crowds." Read the entire Esquire review.
