NSFW Week: Pete Bagge's "Sleezball"

Hide the children! Draw the blinds! This week at Easily Mused, every comic exhibit is...



Combining the manic energy of a Bob Clampett cartoon with the massive angst of a generation forced to live directly in the shadow of The Baby Boomers, Pete Bagge created a signature style that continues to resonate strongly today. "Sleezball," a 1982 contribution to an anthology titled Dr. Wirtham's Comix & Stories, is a portrait of a young man running from a meaningless life of privilege, seeking to find the joy in life's simple pleasures, like "RC Cola on an empty stomach." What's more, it's a laugh riot! (Warning : Contains profanity, mature themes, immature themes, drug use, violence, cannibalism, and multiple references to pig's knuckles.) Soon to be a major motion picture. See what I did there?

    Not the most interesting, insightful or original comment, I know, but just this time, it needed to be said. Like, wow, man.
