Reader's Diary #1367- Sara Ryan (writer), Steve Lieber (artist): Escape from Alcatraz 13 The Dummy Head Breakout
My son and I also found it somewhat amusing, mostly due to the hapless inmate Allen West. Claiming to be the mastermind behind the whole thing, he was the only one of the quartet not to have gotten out. First off, he hadn't chiseled his hole big enough, and secondly, when you see the four confiscated paper mache heads side by side, the quality of his bust compared to others sends me into fits of giggles every time. See if you can tell which one is his. Hint: like the hole, West didn't finish this either.
Steve Lieber's art in this one is fine, if in the style of generic pseudo- realism.
