My Friend Dahmer author Derf Backderf offers his third volume of True Stories, culled from his long-running alt-weekly comic strip, The City. This volume features stories from 1996 to 2001. Derf takes us back to the halcyon days of the 1990s with hilarious, sometimes troubling, always timeless stories fished from the crankcase oil that coalesces in the bottom of the American psyche.
“True Stories manages to entertain and amuse you the entire time.” —Dustin Cabeal. Comic Bastards
“Timeless strips from a master of the genre.” — Tom Tomorrow
“Great, gritty stuff from an alt-weekly legend. It doesn’t get much realer than this.” — Jen Sorensen
“Who wouldn’t want reality served up through the bizarre, twisted lenses of Derf’s brain and drawing hand? True stories is the best way to experience the truth.” — Ruben Bolling
“Derf’s cartoons are the essential roadmap for America’s cultural landscape. Hardcore, caffeinated, and unforgiving.” — Shannon Wheeler
“Derf rules!” — Keith Knight
