A Goosebumps tale that isn't quite as Super as it should be.
Dan Warry-Smith plays Skipper Mathews, a young boy who always has his nose in a comic book. His father (Maurice Godin) tries to convince him that his passion for comic books is unhealthy, but Skipper won't be dissuaded. Not even when he starts seeing aspects from the comic book world around him in his everyday life. He tells his friend, Libby (Melissa Bathory), and the both of them head out to discover whether or not Skipper is hallucinating after too much time in the comic book worlds.
Written by Dan Angel and directed by Randy Bradshaw, this is a poor Goosebumps episode, especially coming after the very enjoyable previous tale. Of course, as I have mentioned on numerous occasions, the two part stories are often weaker than those that manage to cram everything into one bite-sized chunk.
Warry-Smith is okay in the main role, all naiveté and wide-eyed wonder at the impossible he sees appearing around him, and Bathory is very enjoyable as the cool gal pal that any young, comic-loving lad would want to hang out with.
This isn't a terrible episode of the show, but it's simply setting up the better stuff due to come up in the concluding part of the story.
