22 Reviews
A vicious satire of pop culture and the commerce of art in a newedition, with a new cover and intro by Clowes! This hilarious classic from DanClowes is a brutal and scathing peek into the insular, pathetic worldof the comic book industry, as seen through the eyes of antihero DanPussey (pronounced "Pooh-say"), creator of the smash superhero comic"Nauseator." From cradle to grave, Clowes presents the complete saga ofYoung Dan Pussey, mercilessly skewering the business and medium ofcomics, bouncing from art to commerce to culture high and low. Clowesnot only parodies the superhero genre (notably Stan "The Man" Lee), butalso his own peers, from his publishers and fellow authors atFantagraphics to artistic heavyweights like Art Spiegelman (seen hereas "Gummo Bubbleman"). Through it all, Pussey dreams endlessly abouthaving sex with a woman, but even those fantasies degenerate intosuperhero scenarios.
