    I took the first volume of it out of the library a month or so back and had a good time reading it! I didn’t know there was more.

    The story’s about a bunch of insect jazzmen in the 50s, struggling with rising fame and their addictions to a drug known as “bug juice”. The first volume is mostly concerned with the rise of Jimmy Watts and his friends, with occasional flashforwards to the present day.

    I haven’t been a fan of Steve Lafter before–I don’t dislike his work, it just never grabbed me–but it’s hard to turn away a recommendation by Jim Woodring, himself one of the great graphic artists of the era.
