The Midnight 6ix

Alavaka Midnight

As the sunlight fades a warm green glow burns like an ember from the inside out. Golden flecks shine like stars embedded in their skin as daylight dies giving birth to the purple haze of midnight.

Featuring metallic blue, purple and gold sprays with subtle neon accents on the faces and horns (2 neon green, 2 neon orange and 2 neon pink), the figure is limited to 6 pieces.

R.Crumb’s Hup #1 and Hup #2

RCrumb Hup 1 2

The Official R.Crumb Site has announced the release of Crumb's Hup #1 and Hup #2 comics books. Part of a four series collection (Hup 3 and Hup 4 will be released next month), these comic books, written and drawn back in the early '80s, have been out of print for many years. They can be purchased for $5.00 each.

Hup 1 starts with the Ruff-tuff Cream-Puffs as they Take Charge! Crumb amazingly predicts the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld Administration, which occurred some twenty years after he drew the piece. Next Crumb brings back Mr. Natural! Then the famous My Troubles with Women Part 2 follows that and Crumb finishes with Mr. Natural's return, but only this time with Cheryl Borck, the Devil Girl!

Hup 2 presents The Mighty Power Fems, Crumb's x-rated satire of super hero comics. Next is his hilarious If I Were King, finishing off with the continuation of Flakey Foont's obsession with The Devil Girl in The Meeting. Who could blame him?
