Today's installment features an anthology collection of Duplex Planet Illustrated stories compiled and edited by David Greenberger and illustrated by some of the brightest lights in alternative comics:

No More Shaves, edited by David Greenberger

No More Shaves

The Duplex Planet started in 1979 as a small, self-xeroxed fanzine by David Greenberger. In 20 years, it has become a veritable cottage industry and endless source of inspiration for Greenberger. The Duplex Planet features stories and conversations that Greenberger had with the residents of the Duplex Nursing Home in Boston, where he worked in the late 1970s and '80s. Greenberger presents the beauty and comical wisdom of the often bizarre and occasionally poignant things said by his elderly friends. Greenberger never imposes his own worldview, allowing the residents to quietly flesh themselves into some of the more remarkable characters in contemporary literature. No More Shaves presents these stories in comics form interpreted by many of today's best cartoonists, including Dave Cooper, Jason Lutes, Rick Altergott, Doug Allen, Daniel Clowes, JR Williams, Ron Regé Jr., Dame Darcy, Jeff Johnson, Tim Hensley, Holly Jane Zachary, Paul Nitsche, Pat Moriarity, Eric Theriault, Greg Ruth, Wayno, George Parsons, Gary Leib, and Dean Rohrer.
