UPDATE JULY 2015. PUNK ROCK & TRAILER PARKS is no longer available from the SLG Comics Store. However, Amazon will continue to be re-supplied. I usually discourage folks from buying from Amazon, but there's no other option here, so have at it. The Comixology download is also excellent, and I actually receive a royalty from these sales, so if owning a physical copy is not important to you, please opt for that.
PUNK ROCK & TRAILER PARKS conjures up the oppressive insanity of growing up in the Rustbelt, the day-to-day weirdness of the trailer parks tucked away therein, the magic allure of sex and the necessary comforts of friendship, the mystical power of the counter-culture to turn outcasts into heroes and, most of all, the transcendent power of music, specifically the punk rock of the late 1970's which redefined, transported, and ultimately, perhaps, disappointed a generation. It's a tale as gritty, raucous and bawdy as punk music itself.
PUNK ROCK & TRAILER PARKS is an evocative, hilarious, and ultimately poignant book that will appeal to anyone whose youthful dreams live on.
