Front Cover
Fantagraphics, 2005 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 234 pages
A caustic and hilarious love story set in 1990s New York.

Bob Fingerman's Beg the Question tells the story of Rob and Sylvia, two twentysomethings navigating the labyrinth of New York City life. Imagine a cross between Seinfeld and Caligula, set in New York, and you'll have an idea of Fingerman's caustic wit. Beg the Question follows Rob & Sylvia's relationship through all of its ups-and-downs, from courtship to marriage, rentals to real estate salesmen, public sex to unwanted pregnancies, and everything in between. Performance art, extended families, the comic book industry and Screw magazine are just a few of the other topics subjected to Fingerman's satirical microscope. Featuring an introduction by Penn Jillette.
