Warts and All is a sizzling collection of celebrity gossip and way-out-there satire, all rendered in Drew Friedman's insanely meticulous stipple techinique. This book received the 1992 Harvey award for "Best Graphic Novel – Reprint," and no wonder — as assembled by editor/designers Art Spiegelman and Francoise Mouly, it's a handsome package indeed. Subjects include such Friedman favorites as Tor Johnson, Leave It to Beaver, Rondo Hatton, and Bela Lugosi — as well as Joey Heatherton, who stars in Friedman's magnum opus, "I, Joey Heatherton." Rounded off with such insulting strips as "Comic Shop Clerks" and "Ugly White Guys — They Like Television," and a handful of selections from Spy magazine's "Private Lives of Public Figures" (Ronald Reagan, Dan Quayle, Bill Cosby, Dan Ackroyd), Warts and All is a thrilling and appalling trip through the backwaters of American culture.

"Wicked realism and freakish horror typify the Friedman style, producing some of the sickest and funniest comics of our times." – Playboy

"A hilariously meanspirited cartoon collection." – Entertainment Weekly

"An extraordinary series of elegantly satirical comic strips." – Philadelphia Enquirer

"A gritty, gloomy treat, humorously jabbing into the dark fish-belly underside of the American Dream. Comics to kick your teeth in." – Austin Chronicle
