My first encounter with this anthology. For some reason I had it in my head that this was a super arty, pretentious art school sort of thing and it really wasn't - it was actually artsy in just the right way (i.e. the contributors have the talent to back up their pretentions). Loved the Gilbert Shelton piece and would like to see pts 2 & 3 as they arrive.

Then there's the usual cast of MOME characters who we alread
