Now, La Mano collects all the Mosquito Abatement stories that first appeared in King-Cat, 1989 - 1999 (many of which have been rarely seen before) as well as 30 pages of new material done especially for this volume.

From the raw, spontaneous, punk-inspired energy of the early strips to gentler, more reflective lyricism of the later ones, Diary Of A Mosquito Abatement Man chronicles John's difficult path form a nihilistic belief in the meaninglessness of life to a deep respect for the world as it si, and an acceptance of his place in it.

'John Porcellino's comics distill, in just a few lines and words, the feeling of simply being alive.' -Chris Ware
