Eightball #3 contains a sort of Cartoonist's Book of Genesis: "The Young Manhood of Dan Pussey," with hilarious caricatures of Art Spiegelman and Gary Groth as two cantankerous "alternative" publishers dismayed by Pussey's singular lack of talent! This issue also includes the classic "The Stroll," an "Eightball profile" of evil "Pastor Robert Tilton," the Duplex Planet page "What Can Robots Do?" and chapter three of "Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron." A perennial favorite that never goes out of style!

"Each issue of this comics carnival by Dan Clowes is like a trip to a candy store where the bonbons are filled with bile (and you can't stop eating them)." – The Stranger
