Aardvark-Vanaheim
$3.00
It's the knock-down, drag-out battle to the death you've been waiting for! High Fashion models versus Zootanapuss & Bunny, The One Rabbit Wrecking Crew! Only one faction will survive and the other will be exiled forever from the pages of glamourous! Subtitled "Crisis on Infinite Aardvark-Vanaheims," you won't want to miss a minute of the action in this multi-part thriller which will change the shape of the Aardvark-Vanaheim Universe for all time (or at least until sales are, once again, in the toilet) - it's like the classic two-part Hulk versus Thing only better because all the action takes place in smartly tailored clothing and features a really cute bunny! The history of Photorealism in Comics section continues with the events of September 6, 1956.

An examination of Quack! #3 (1977) cover featuring The Beavers and what seemed to be, at the time a real breakthrough for Dave Sim and his brand new weekly newspaper strip. Excerpts from Quack! publisher Mike Friedrich’s, letters of the time demonstrates that Sim was oscillating between wanting to be a good team player at Star*Reach and not wanting to have his creativity messed with by an editor/publisher. His views have changed substantially since that time. Find out how.
