In the latter years of the 1980s a series of comics from Malibu Comics did something now other comic book publisher was able to accomplish to such critically acclaimed success -- lampoon the well established international action/adventure characters as represented by the likes of James Bond and other extraordinary spies, CIA operatives, FBI agents, and government sanctioned hit men. Now all of these long out of print and unavailable issues have been collected together into two graphic novel anthologies. Volume 1 comprises the first seven issues of this remarkable series beginning with its debut in 1987. Volume 2 offers issues 8 through 14. Together they present the story of Lester Girls, a man who must suffer the attentions of countless beautiful women, have fancy cars, palatial estates, and overwhelming wealth imposed upon him. All Lester wants is a simple life with a loving wife and a small town in which to enjoy them both. Alas, no matter his desires, he and his sidekick and friend Apache Dick (plus Lester's mischievous two nephews) are constantly attacked by every manner of villain and villainess. Then there is 'Scoops', a determined young lady reporter seeking to uncover Lester's personal story. A masterpiece of satire from beginning to end, "The Trouble With Girls" is intended for and enthusiastically recommended to a mature readership who appreciates the well crafted and thoroughly entertaining lampooning of countless literary sacred cows arising from the hero and villain stereotypes that at the core of contemporary comics and movies.
