Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Garbage Pail Kidsand#8212;a series of collectible stickers produced by Topps in the 1980sand#8212;combined spectacular artwork and over-the-top satire. The result was an inspired collaboration between avant-garde cartoonists and humorists including Art Spiegelman, Mark Newgarden, John Pound, Tom Bunk, and Jay Lynch. A new generation of fans continues to embrace this pop-culture phenomenon as Garbage Pail Kids stickers are still being published. Now, for the first time, all 206 rare and hard-to-find images from Series 1 through 5 are collected in an innovative package, along with a special set of four limited-edition, previously unreleased bonus stickers. This exciting follow up to Wacky Packages is guaranteed to appeal to die-hard collectors as well as a new generation of fans.

Praise for Garbage Pail Kids:

and#160;"If you ask me, reliving my time with Bad Breath Seth and Potty Scotty is worth the cover price alone." and#8212;USAToday.com

"I worried that [the Garbage Pail Kids] might seem too time-bound for their own good; but if anything, 27 years later, theyand#8217;re more poignant. Maybe itand#8217;s because Iand#8217;m a worried, concerned adult, but more likely itand#8217;s because nothing is ever as funny as it is when youand#8217;re ten years oldand#8212;and everything is a lot scarier." and#8212;CapitalNewYork.comand#160;

"The book is a wonderfully designed tribute to these shit-disturbing cards in all their graphic, full-color glory." and#8212;ComicsBeat.com

and#160;

"There's a lot of interesting stuff in Spiegel man's intro, and in the afterward by John Pound, the artist who originated and drew the bulk of the Kids. But the real reason to buy this book is for the graphic brilliance of the art itselfand#8230;" and#8212;Boston Phoenix

Synopsis:

Bazooka Joe and his Gang have been synonymous with bubble gum ever since their debut in 1953, providing an irresistible combination of cheap laughs wrapped around pink, sugary sweetness. This book celebrates the iconic mini-comics that are recognized the world over. The story of Bazooka Bubble Gum is also detailed with extensive essays, including a profile of Wesley Morse, the original illustrator of Bazooka Joe. Included are reproductions of more than 100 classic comics spanning six decadesand#151;including the complete first series, reprinted in its entirety for the first timeand#151;as well as jokes, fortunes, and tiny ads for mail-order merchandise. Like Bazooka Bubble Gum itself, the book is pure nostalgia and guaranteed to appeal to kids and adults alike.

Includes 4 bonus trading cards and a genuine wax wrapper that evokes the original bubble gum packagingand#151;like holding an actual piece of Bazooka in your hands!
