I couldn't agree more!! I used to avoid B&W comics because...well,
because they *were* B&W! However, I now find that Usagi is my favorite
read each month. Even more than Groo (*gasp*) or DD (*double gasp*).  I
still wouldn't want to be without the other 2, but Stan's definitely
captured my attention/interest/imagination/etc. As the shaker said: just
try one. Better yet, I HIGHLY recommend picking up one of the old TPBs.
That way you get a couple single stories, a few multi-parters, etc.
Really gives you a good cross section of what Stan & Usagi can do. :)
