Fans. Perhaps you are one yourself. Justin Melkmann became a GG Allin fan when he was a kid. Don't know GG Allin? He's one of the most outrageous punk rock idols that ever lived. His performances were over the top and might include body fluids and solids, nudity, and very nasty words...

But what Justin did about being a fan is somewhat unique. He started writing a GG Allin biography, with interview of family, friends and GG himself. He got sidetracked along the way, though, with real life. He held some "real jobs" including a cartooning gig and television shows. But he never stopped loving GG Allin's raucous life.

The family pulled the plug on the biography eventually, and so Justin decided to create a comic about the biography instead. Rather than a comic about GG Allin, this is a comic about Justin's fandom.

And while his artwork is crude and underground, the story is interesting. I've never been punk. My music choice is usually classical. But Justin makes it clear how GG's music spoke to him and inspired him.
