The Adventures of Barry Ween, Boy Genius: Secret Crisis Origin Files

    (Oni, 2004)

Judd Winick’s (Pedro & Me, Green Lantern, Titans/Young Justice, Frumpy the Clown) foul-mouthed, prepubescent super-genius is back in the basement, and this time he’s not only cooked up a potion that turns the baby–sitter into a giant gorilla, he’s opened yet another dimensional vortex that sends his friend Sara on a trip that is, naturally, out of this world.

Published as part of the third Free Comic Book Day cooperative promotion between comic book publishers and retailers, this one–shot provides a flashback that reveals the first meeting between Barry and his best–pal, the seemingly A.D.D.–challenged Jeremy. The baby–sitter story is from the Adventures of Barry Ween, Boy Genius (Vol. 3), and we also get a sneak-peek lead-in to the fourth Adventures of Barry Ween, Boy Genius series, subtitled Gorilla Warfare.
