It’s been a while since I’ve been able to enjoy this wacky series, and I’ve missed it. Jimmy continues to mire himself in all kinds of craziness and trouble, but in this issue we discover at least some of it isn’t his fault. Jimmy is apparently married to Jinx, an interdimensional jewel-thief, who in the opening segment is demoing her abilities on a live video with Jimmy to Perry White. Since she is not actually stealing jewels, he’s not impressed. Then a demon and an army of robots show up to claim Jinx, but can’t get past some bananas. A series of flashbacks fill us in on who’s really out to kill Jimmy and why, and then Jimmy decides he has to head out alone to fix things.

Great stuff, funny and clever in every way. Recommended.
