2 more Black Forest 2 reviews which mention the Wold Newton article...

... and they both even managed to spell "Wold" correctly!

For fans of the Wold Newton Universe, this is an encouraging comment, I think: "The explanation of the Wold Newton Universe provides a certain authentication of both stories [THE BLACK FOREST and THE WICKED WEST], making them that much more intense."

I don't necessarily agree with the next reviewer's take on the BLACK FOREST 2 story itself, although I should mention that one definitely needs to read the first BLACK FOREST graphic novel for a better understanding of what's happening in the second. On a brighter note, the reviewer gets what the Wold Newton Universe is all about, which means that my article "The Black Forest and the Wold Newton Universe" did its job in 1,000 words or less. And I don't mind one bit that the reviewer called it "non-comics-based continuity geekery" and "metablivion."
