Mini Review By Sarah Thompson

I cannot begin to describe how wonderful these are. Even people who never heard of B7 like them. Part of what makes them so funny, I think, is the completely deadpan approach to the wacky Bizarro Seven universe. The accompanying visuals help, too.

I strongly recommend ordering #s 3 and 4 from Leah while she still has some left! (I'll post the contents info on those in a day or two.) And the coloring book, too.
