Gary Panter: Cola Madness

By Panter, Gary; John Carlin

Funny Garbage Press, 2001. Hardcover. First edition, 2000. Fine/As New hardcover with sewn in book mark; no dj as issued. BOOKS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY, WRAPPED IN PADDING, IN A BOX. "Legendary underground cartoonist Gary Panter's comics are typically anarchic and fun, but they also delve deeper. Written in 1983, Cola Madness is published here in book form for the first time. The work stars Jimbo, Panter's enduring punk everyman, sharing billing with a cast of idiosyncratic characters including Bob War; his calamitous brother, Uncle Garcia; and Kokomo, a native in an unspecified tropical land colonized by oil companies. Posited as the hallucinatory fever dream of Kokomo, Panter's farce follows Jimbo's misadventures as he tries to get a Moka Cola at the local Jack-in-the-McTacos, the whole zany affair culminating in an absurd, scatological climax at an automated fast food restaurant." Written and illustrated by Gary Panter; essay by John Carlin. 209 pages; b&w comics throughout; 5 x 7.5 inches.
