Drawn in a cartoon style influenced by artists such as Don Martin, these silly images clash jarringly with the dark, disturbing narratives. Salty Peters and Dick Smalls appear throughout the book as two bumbling n'er do wells. Hoofjob Comics is filled with dick jokes, scatological humor, profanity and cartoon nudity.
“I've been drawing this particular comic for over a year now,” Geoffrey says, “and it's great to see it all coming together in this book. My target audience is readers who appreciate dark, adult humor. I started reading comics at an early age. Stuff like MAD Magazine, the National Lampoon and the like were obvious early influences. Don Martin's work at MAD in particular struck a chord with me, but the underground stuff— Crumb, Peter Bagge, Johnny Ryan, Joe Matt, and Sam Henderson—are my most direct influences.”
Geoffrey Reed has been illustrating the innovative and thought provoking Hoofjob comics for over a decade, and now you, the lucky Hoofjob owner have access to a cavalcade of humor that only a few years ago would have been thought nearly impossible.
Mr. Reed has had the distinct privilege of having his work rejected by more newspapers, comic books and other artistic endeavors than almost any other Northwest artist in that region's great history.
