FROM THE ARCHIVES

JUSTIN HAMPTON’S RAT (issue number 1)
Mike Allred (signed as Allred M.D.)
Jul 1997 / Aeon/Backbone Press / 1 page pinup (0f 24 pages) / black and white

Happy New Year folks!
While hunting through my LSC I found this little gem that I’d never heard about before. It was my first comic purchase for the year!

Mike, who around this period of his career was signing his work as Allred M.D and would earn the nickname Doc for obvious reasons, contributed this pinup of the title character, Rat. This was the first issue of a 3 issue mini series. The creator, Justin Hampton, is an illustrator known for his music gig posters of artist such as Pavement, Bob Dylan, PJ Harvey, Mazzy Star and Frank Zappa.

Below is the front cover by Justin Hampton.
