Hotwire Comics Vol. 03 SC

TIRED OF TAME, BORING COMICS? SEE: hoTWIRE! The Harvey and Eisner nominated anthology of action, thrills, chills and trangression is back with a third volume! Anything goes in hotwire, eschewing literary high-mindedness for a pure, gut-wrenching viscerality that you can tune in and rest your brain on after a long day. hotwire the third leaps off the page from the get-go with David Sandlin's "Infernal Combustion," about boozing it up in a broke-down caddy, and Tim Lane's bit of freight-hopping grit, "Spike." Underground comics legend Mary Fleener returns with "The Judge," a true tale about her own life fending off thugs... with a .38! Meanwhile, hotwire Captain Glenn Head spins the biog raphy of German surrealist Hans Bellmer as a down and out Vaudevillian in decadent Weimar Berlin. Other creepy delights: Rick Altergott delivers a fable of a child-molesting clown pleasuring himself in the suburbs, while Matti Hagelberg's "Passion of Atte" is a modern-day dante's Inferno of comics. There's also more knockout work and crazy visuals by Mark Dean Veca, Johnny (Angry Youth Comix) Ryan, Mats?!, Max Andersson, Sam Henderson, Steve Cerio, Stephane Blanquet, Doug Allen, Carol Swain, Craig Yoe, J. Bradley Johnson, Michael (Tales designed to Thrizzle) Kupperman, Danny Hellman, Mack White, Lorna Miller, David Paleo, Christian Northeast, Karl Wills and Jay Pulga. Looking for laffs? A psychic jolt? A partner for your next trip? Look no further than... hotwire!
