It's a once a decade kind of a thing. 3: I edited a comic anthology title called WEIRDO with Robert Crumb
HARD & LABORED Pamela asked me to write a brief blog about Peter Bagge's original graphic novel OTHER LIVES which hits the shelves next Wednesday.

I've been tooling around with approaches all week and I've come up empty.
