_
Seven years after the first Nard n' Pat comic, we are treated with a second one from Kitchen Sink. This one is 52 pages and compiled from previously published comics (mostly Bijou Funnies, but also Gothic Blimp Works and The Conspiracy). Look closely, the cover art is not by Jay Lynch, but Pete Poplaski. And who the hell is Erwin Helfer? (He's a blues piano player from Chicago, that's who!)

Jay Lynch is one of my favorite underground comic creators. He really knows how to write funny, concise stories, and is (in my mind) highly underrated as a comic illustrator. Besides his detailed ink work, which elevate his best work near the top of the underground fellowship, Lynch has a great sense of composition.
