Though I read superhero comics as a young teen I quickly dropped them when I discovered underground comics in the early 70’s. But even as a teen I enjoyed reprints of the Golden Age superhero comics much more than the contemporary comics because they had an open-ended, beginning-of-a-new-art-form feeling (even if they were more blunt and dumb). Anyway, it’s hard for me to take any superhero character seriously and they seem downright perverted is why I drew this comic. And that goes for religion too!
Order “The Underworld: From Hoboken to Hollywood” the omnibus collection of the very best of the strip’s 23-year run, with annotations, photos, and other surprises from the author (along with a foreword by Mutts creator Patrick McDonnell).
