The Great Gazoo is working on his report card for the human race, and so far humanity has earned a big fat “F.” When the Church of Gerard starts selling Indulgences, Bedrock descends into violence and debauchery. Meanwhile, a miner gets trapped at Slate’s Quarry. Might there be an honest citizen in this burgeoning civilization willing to come to his rescue?

This book has been a real surprise for me. I'd tagged it as a fun but unnecessary continuation of the cartoon initially, but a couple of issues ago it started to get strangely...real. Consequently, this comic has gone from one I groaned about to one I look forward to reading. What the hell is going on here? Flintstones aren't supposed to give me the feels! Look at some preview pages below.
