HOLY SHIT! I spent a lot of money on this book. Thanks to that wacky George Bush and his economy saving Stimulus package I was able to not only purchase a copy but I could do it with only 3/4 of the guilt I would normally feel spending much needed money on a comic book. That being said I am now one book closer to dying owning all the things I want. Thanks Mr. Bush.

This is the BEST Dan Clowes book ever!! I love the Eat-niks.
The lettering is tweaky and matches the art perfectly.
Every character is crazy not mopey and emo like later stories.
