The graphic artist's landmark debut comic-strip novel. Now considered a late-modern cult classic. Limited Edition of 350 numbered and signed copies.

Glossy pictorial boards featuring the artist's work in color and titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Graphic art and texts by Skip Williamson. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Chicago to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Named after one of Chicago's most famous streets/landmarks, it is a story that combines "hallucinogenic political analysis and Midwestern moralizing, which have made the author the ideal reporter of life in Middle America. The most political of underground humorists in the most thuggishly political of American cities". Captures the artist's distinctively grotesque, vivid, and wicked style. A masterpiece. This copy is Number 109, and is very boldly and beautifully numbered and signed in black marker (on the original illustrated Limitation Card that is pasted on the front free endpaper) by Skip Williamson. This title is now highly collectible. This is the only copy of the Limited Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus.
