This is a collection of three previously unpublished Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children, the darkly humorous comic book series by Dave Louapre and Dan Sweetman. The three tales featured in this short anthology:

Lester, the Lonesome Druid - The morose reminiscence of a long-dead Druid, Lester laments about the wasted actions of his people and his life, and the absurd insignificance of it all. Existential angst, dead Druid style.

Even Bluebirds Go to Hell - Probably the most uplifting story in the collection, crotchety old Edna Krutch and her annoying dog Tippy find themselves adjusting to their new lives of eternal torment, which to some people can be a blessing in disguise. Heart-warming damnation at its finest.

The Night They Missed the Donkey Show - A group wanders through the streets of downtown Tijuana in search of the elusive Donkey Show, touring a nightmarish landscape that makes the previous visions of Hell seem like a romantic getaway.

This is an essential addition to any Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children collection, and a perfect sampler of the kind of twisted, guilty pleasures this short-lived series had to offer. ( )
