'Critical Mass of Cool' by Paul Kirchner
 originally appeared in Heavy Metal November 1984

This scan of 'Critical Mass' is taken from the paperback book 'Realms', Catalan Communications, 1987.

It's only three pages in length, but this is (in my opinion) one of the better shorter comics to appear in 'Heavy Metal'  from '77 to '85. 'Critical Mass' expertly captures early 80s pop culture in a way that 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High' never really came close to.
