Everything old is new again! Mike and Greg decide to tackle Bob Fingerman's 90's alt-comic fave from Fantagraphics, recently re-released in oversized hardcover form from Image Comics. Greg went new school and read the HC, while Mike went old school and busted out the FB trades. But it's all the same stories, right?
Ummmm.... yes and no. For the new release, Fingerman (by his own admission) pulled a "George Lucas" and re-worked the old material to bring it all up to his current standards.
Did that help? Hurt? How does this series stand against the test of time, and what about Fingerman's new Minimum Wage series debuting this month? And what's it like for two people to talk about a book they've both read and not read at the same time? Give a listen and find out!
