A perfect example of what Bob Fingerman is capable of and evidence of his knack for inner and spoken dialogue. Sometimes wacky, sometimes surreal, sometimes gross but always smart and sharp.
I'm biased. I like Bob Fingerman. Many years ago, I had him for a store signing, and he's really a great guy. His art is really bizarre, but I really like it. It's not very commercial though and I have a hard time selling his stuff. I'll carry it anyway. The closest artist style- wise that's made it also is Dave Cooper. I really like them both.

Meh. The book had potential - I enjoy some of Bob Fingerman's word use in the text - but it seemed that every time it was on the verge of doing something interesting or inspired, it veered in the wrong direction. Not terrible, but not that great.

Recent releases are From the Ashes, a satirical "speculative memoir" set in post-apocalyptic New York (IDW, March 2010) of which The Onion wrote, “As a blitz of astringent satire, an unabashed love letter to his wife, and a love-hate manifesto aimed at the whole human race, From The Ashes is a gem; as an addition to the often-staid canon of post-apocalyptic pop culture, it’s a revelation… A
