Last Call for “Doggie Style” with Free Lafler Sketch

August 2, 2013

This is the last chance to get a copy of my new Dog Boy book with a signed sketch on the title page.

I’ve been in the U.S. this summer promoting my new collection Doggie Style: The Complete Dog Boy. I’m just about to head back to Oaxaca, Mexico (where I’ve hung my hat for the past several years.)

I have a dozen copies of my deluxe 488 page Dog book left, and I’m looking to find a home for them before I head south. The hardcover goes for $50 and the paper back is $30, including postage & packaging.

I’m offering these last few copies with an original signed sketch on the title page.

Send me an email to order your copy.

Please specify hardcover or softcover. I will bill you via Paypal and ship upon payment.

These darn books are too heavy to haul to Oaxaca, and they’d cost a fortune to ship to or from Mexico, so I’m hoping to find a few folks to throw me a bone and take ’em off my hands.

Thanks for your interest!

The book will be available as a print-on-demand item from CO2 Comics after this, but would not include a sketch.

More Shaggy Dog Facts:

The frisky dog-headed lad was introduced in my title Guts #3 in 1982. Subsequently, I produced seven issues of Dog Boy on my Cat-Head Comics imprint. Dog Boy was then picked up by Fantagraphics for a ten issue run.

 I worked furiously over a six year stretch on Dog Boy in a classic brush and ink style, mixing influences from Will Eisner, Robert Crumb and Jack Kirby into my own brand of bombastic storytelling.

 My idea was to freely improvise every working moment, getting fresh inspiration on the page. At times I produced spectacular, even transcendental work, while other pages simply found a beer-guzzling Dog Boy chasing cars and biting police officers.

 From the introduction by Stephen Beaupre:

 “If you are holding this book, you have already won the lottery. You are a champ. You drink for free. This is Dog Boy! These stories include enough active ingredient to make your knees wobble. This is not cutesy test-marketed juvenilia sucking up for a development deal.
