Minimum Wage #1

Minimum Wage #1

Product Review (submitted on January 21, 2014):
Back in the '90s I worked for a comics magazine, and Bob Fingerman's excellent Minimum Wage was a comic me and my colleague Joe Rybandt both championed. In the context of '90s alterna-comics, we didn't understand why more people didn't read the story of struggling smut cartoonist Rob, his bride Sylive (never really liked her) and his friends. Well, it's now almost 15 years later, (in the comic it's like 5 years later - although the characters look like it's 20 years later) and we rejoin Rob as he tries to pick up the shattered pieces of his life in a world that is rapidly changing around him. Fingerman's art is better than ever, and the return of Minimum Wage is like some friends who moved away years ago moving back to your neighborhood. I'm happy to have them around again.
