As a huge Foamy fan (been watching the toons for 9 years, even have a Germaine tattoo on my shoulder. The flower dress "I'm not here to please you" bit) I loved getting my hands on this. What an awesome journey to go back in time and read some of JIM's first works. Had I been in NYC during the time any of this stuff was written I would have scrounged every telephone post in Yonkers to get original copies of this stuff. Damn you, Texas... Ah well. I loved this book. It was cool to read an entirely different story of Germaine that didn't make it to the toons.
Fans of Foamy the Squirrel (cult internet video star) looking for more of the same, be forewarned: this isn't it. This is older stuff. Consider it Germaine's back story. Thus enlightened, you won't be disappointed in the lack of Foamy (who is present in most panels but in a highly insignificant manner). You might be disappointed in the quality of the printing (very poor) or the copy editing (littered with errors) or the general preachiness (a bit too much). But if you were a follower of JIM's printed work back in the "day" and want a collection to guide you down memory lane, this could very well be it.
