MANCHILD #8, $?, 5½” x 8½”, glossy cover, 16 pgs.

Mar 28, 2018

Appropriately titled, Manchild offers funny and sometimes flat, self-deprecating MAD magazine-style comic punk tales with a plethora of dated pop culture references for aging punks. “2018 Auditions for Gregg Ginn’s Black Flag!!!” dabbles with the likes of Toonces The Cat (SNL), Beaker (Muppets), and Debby Boone. You can also find some privileged white dude internal conflict with “Butthurt University” that takes a missing stab at political correctness. Also, plentiful takes of stoner rock bands quoting J.D. Salinger. His comics are sharp, sometimes—but not always—on point, and the drawings are skillful and deft. Disclaimer: the audience this is written for is other manchildren. –Camylle Reynolds (To Live A Lie)
