Charles Rodrigues took morbid humor to new highs (or lows) in the pages of the National Lampoon and elsewhere, and Ray and Joe: The Story of a Man and His Dead Friend collects his comics for the first time. In addition to the titular serial about post-mortem pals, the "Other Classic Comics" referred to in the subtitle star conjoined twins The Aesop Brothers (seen above); Sam DeGroot, the private eye in an iron lung; the mind-shatteringly ugly Deirdre Callahan; and other saps and miscreants. If you equate "outrageous" and "offensive" with "delightful," these comics will poke you right in your joy sac.
This hardcover volume will befoul shelves starting in October — stay tuned for more looks and info!
