The Mag­ic Pick­le is an unimag­i­na­tive com­ic book sto­ry of evil veg­eta­bles that want to take over the world. They are thwart­ed by a super-enhanced Pick­le and his pre­teen human side­kick. The only thing remote­ly Jew­ish about this inane sto­ry is that the pick­le is a KOSHER dill. The com­ic is full of puns and sopho­moric humor, but has no tam. Not rec­om­mend­ed. Ages 7 – 10.
