Review of "Underdog Summer Special, 1" comic

 Review of

Underdog Summer Special, 1 comic

Five out of five stars

Blasts from the past

 Like Superman, Underdog changed from his mild mannered persona of shoe-shine boy to his role as a superhero in a phone booth. However, when the change is complete, the phone booth explodes. Voiced by the unmistakable Wally Cox, Underdog was an understated, somewhat comic superhero where he was always mistaken for a flying frog. Which of course rhymed with Underdog.

 This comic captures the measured silliness of the character along with his love interest, Sweet Polly Purebred, a reporter that is also a dog. The semblance to the Superman/reporter Lois Lane pairing is of course not to be missed.

 A cartoon with a silly heart and sometimes childlike dialog, the Underdog series is a classic that will continue to entertain children for generations. This comic matches the show in images, dialog and plot. Nothing serious, a little absurd, but always fun.
