AUG042586F SPX 2004 Anthology ?pg, 7"x10" $9.95

commentary, the dozens of artists who contributed to this year's
anthology poured their souls into the thought-provoking, sometimes
heart-rending stories. Steve Lieber provides the highly-detailed cover;
a homage to comics history. Pick up a copy to help support the CBLDF

RAT RACE COMIX http://www.hairbuttthehippo.com/
by Jason Paulos & Bodine Amerikah
AUG042913F Soft Boiled Tales One-shot 32pg $2.95
'"Chariots of the Clods" is one of Hairbutt the Hippo's strangest cases
yet! Our hippo hero becomes entangled in an idiotic government
conspiracy involving crazy hippies, queer commandos, and apathetic
aliens. This issue also features "That Fat Bastard". a Frank Miller
parody featuring stunning Elder/Crumb-inspired artwork. A must for fans
of bawdy humor and great art!' I have the two previous series of this
Aussie import, *Hairbutt the Hippo* and *Hairbutt the Hippo Crime
Files*, and I'm getting this one, even though I'm otherwise no fan of
hard-boiled P.I.'s. Great cover art.
