Hotwire Comics Vol. 02 SC

The cartoon anthology that puts the kicks back in comics strikes again! Climb on board the Hotwire Express for another electrifying joyride - from the sublime to the ridiculous - and all parts in between. Volume 2 includes some of the strongest narrative comics around. Tim Lane's autobiographical strip, "Spirit," portrays the grittiness, desperation, and terror he experienced as a bum, riding the rails. "Niacin," by Mary Fleener, is the hilariously sordid story of a hallucinatory date with a drug dealer. Mack White deconstructs the western myth of the OK Corral gunfight in "Showdown at Hustler's Ridge." Glenn Head's "Oozing Dread!" tells the Twilight Zone-ish tale of Wilhelm Reich, madcap genius-inventor of the orgone box. "Communicable Disease" by Carol Swain shows the descent of a young Scottish lass into impoverished hell. Dutch artist Tobias Tak delivers a fantastical retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk with his comic, "The Ten Inch Giant." All this and more, wrapped in a absolute killer cover by Tim Lane!
