"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of "The Collector" series, The Killing Kind, and Red Right Hand.

"A refreshingly new voice in noir." --Ed Kurtz, author of Nothing You Can Do and The Rib From Which I Remake the World.

"A glorious boilermaker of noir and East Coast gothic. The action is taut as a sprung snare and Bagley tightens the screws with every page." -- Laird Barron, author of Swift to Chase and Blood Standard.

Classics, Illustrated

I just re-read this collection of strips from 1986-87 (my senior year of high school), before Bloom County began its long and painful slide into mediocrity. Can't find the record, though. It must be in a box somewhere. Most of the strips in Billy and the Boingers Bootleg are still pretty funny. I mean, when's the last time you heard a good Ed Meese joke? Oop ack!

An absolute classic.

"Run over Lionel Ritchie with a tank."

And just like that, it's right back on my TBR pile.
