FF2004: The Mystery of Woolverine Woo-Bait

The Mystery of Woolverine Woo-Bait by Joe Coleman.

This is the third and final internet-acquired comic for this blog series (sorry!): Some books are just impossible to find. I can perhaps understand the scarcity of copies in this case. Joe Coleman is a pretty famous artist, and this is his only published comic book.

That is, it was originally published in 1982, and this is a reprinting (with a bonus back-up features).

It’s less psychedelic than I thought it would be. It has a kinda coherent storyline, but perhaps the story isn’t the most important thing going on here. For some reason or other, I was reminded a bit of Gravity’s Rainbow (especially the first 70 or so pages).


The scan for this comic could have been better: The original artwork must have been so detailed, but much of it’s lost here. I think I’ll pick up a copy if I find one, but there’s no time in this blog series. It’s all over soon!

This post is part of the Fantagraphics Floppies series.
