More About the Author

Howard Cruse first began gaining prominence as an underground comic book artist during the 1970s. In 1980 he assumed the editorship of the groundbreaking GAY COMIX series, then in 1983 went on to launch his WENDEL comic strip, which quickly became a popular regular feature in THE ADVOCATE. The first book compilation of his comic strips, WENDEL, appeared in 1986. It was followed by DANCIN' NEKKID WITH THE ANGELS (1987); WENDEL ON THE REBOUND (1988); EARLY BAREFOOTZ (1990); WENDEL ALL TOGETHER (2000), which was subsequently repackaged as THE COMPLETE WENDEL (2011); FROM HEADRACK TO CLAUDE (2009); and THE OTHER SIDES OF HOWARD CRUSE (2012). Cruse's best-known work is the award-winning graphic novel STUCK RUBBER BABY (1995), which has been translated into German, Italian, French, Spanish, and Polish. Cruse also collaborated with Jeanne E. Shaffer to produce an illustrated adaptation of Ms. Shaffer's fable, THE SWIMMER WITH A ROPE IN HIS TEETH (2004), and followed it with his satirical picture book FELIX'S FRIENDS: A STORY FOR GROWN-UPS AND UNPLEASANT CHILDREN (2008). His comix have been included in numerous anthologies over the years, including JUICY MOTHER, BOY TROUBLE, THE BEST OF COMIX BOOK and QU33R.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this collection of Mr. Cruse's strips. The book spans a long and brilliant career from the early seventies to the early part of the century. I'd read many of these pieces here, but they're all worth a re-read. The printing is beautiful so even the oldest stips look fresher than ever. My favorite part of this edition is the recollection and insights from the artist. Understanding where Mr. Cruse was in his life when creating greatly enhanced my enjoyment and understanding of the work.
If you like smart, sexy and edgy comics then this is the book for you.

I own EVERY one of Howard Cruse's books, as well as some of his cartoon products. I read his blogs and everything I can get my hands on. A true artistic genius!
