Once upon a time, at two­thirty in the afternoon, on the enchanted island of York, lived a Wizard. Wearing a big hat to mask his identity, Cheech Wizard is a lascivious con man whose magical powers are questionable ­­ but despite his transgressions (or perhaps because of them), he possesses some degree of cosmic insight. He has met his maker (legendary underground cartoonist Vaughn Bodé, making a divine cartoon cameo), died and been reborn, and gained pop­culture immortality as a worldwide icon of hip hop and street art. For the first time, the Book of Me gathers all of Vaughn Bodé's seminal Cheech Wizard comics into a single essential volume, along with rare and previously unpublished sketches and Cheech's outrageous continued adventures by Mark Bodé. It's the biggest, baddest, ball­bustingest Book of Cheech ever!
