Originally serialized in the late, lamented Weirdo (where it was one of the most popular features), "Martini Baton" cut a giant swath through every racial, sexual, and religious group in America — submitting its entire cast to the most obscene depravities and cruel mockeries writer David Carrino could come up with. When we tell you that one of the milder stories involves Martini's discover that the Pope is actually a Long Island-born, swishy, show-tune singing "sensitive faggot with middle-class values (the worst kind)" who is happiest "with his mouth full of big black dick!" — well, let's just say that Bagge's drawings do full justice to the subject matter.
If you have the slightest, tiniest twinge of political correctness anywhere in your body, Martini Baton will send you right over the edge: Catholic or Protestant, straight or queer, male or female, Jewish, Black, Asian, or White — Carrino and Bagge have your number and they're going to make you squirm! Martini Baton #1 reprints the entire, uncensored Martini saga (including the little "Jesus' Critters" sidebar strips, which will really offend your Catholic friends), complete with brand new Bagge front and back covers.
