Video store clerk Darla Vogel is fed up — fed up with her job, fed up with her wake-and-bake roommate, fed up with everything. But when one of the customers at Kwok's Video offers her some of his meat-flavored candies, Darla takes a plunge down the rabbit hole into a surreal world of throbbing, veinous buildings, compulsory public nudity, weird creatures, and more. If William Burroughs, Lewis Carroll, H.P. Lovecraft, and Harvey Kurtzman ever collaborated, the result might resemble Bob Fingerman's bold confection of words and pictures — the copiously illustrated prose novel Connective Tissue.
"This is a genuinely monstrous book that made me laugh until something burst and now I think I might be dying. You really need to buy one of these." – Warren Ellis, author of Crooked Little Vein and Transmetropolitan
"Fingerman does it again! He disturbs, entertains, amuses and charms with his unholy Fingermanian mixture of perversion, humor, and pathos." – Jonathan Ames, author of The Alcoholic and Wake Up, Sir!

"With Connective Tissue, Bob Fingerman continues to impress as a social commentator and humorist... Although his writing is his strongest gift, Fingerman's art superbly renders the humor and pathos embraced in his words. His style of disturbing, perverse storytelling is both thought-provoking and entertaining. Connective Tissue deserves much praise and even more attention and it should receive tons of both." – Ray Sidman, Comics Buyer's Guide
