Beyond Parody! Beyond Satire! No Mere Spoof! The landmak "gritty/realistic" superhero comics of the 1980s are sent up in stellar fashion by an artist with talents equal to or better than the works he lambastes! Daredevil at his darkest and Batman at his most pointy eared shrivel in humble tribute.
The Ultimate Gnatrat collects the first three Gnatrat comics – The Dark Gnat Returns, Happy Birthday Gnatrat and Darerat/Tadpole – together with the not otherwise published 25 page Dante-ish tale of Boo Swain's decent into the pit – AKA The End – Shut Up! which flows almost seemlessly into the recent – and rapidly expanding – Gnatrat Lives! The (non canonical Gnatrat the Movie is not included, nor is it ever explained, and it is less understood. Also included is a lavish gallery of little seen promotional art, behind the scenes sketches, unused continuities and much more!
120 page black and white paperback with color covers.
May have a hideous barcode sticker on the back cover.
