Summary, etc. note: "In 2004 I published WORN TUFF ELBOW #1 with Fantagraphics and now, 14 years later, I have produced a follow-up, WORN TUFF ELBOW #2, to be published under my own imprint NO WORLD BOOKS! I love creating “floppies”, in other words, saddle-stitched or stapled periodical comic books. There is an informal quality to the process which I find interesting. It was great fun to put this comic together! WORN TUFF ELBOW #2 will be an 8” x 10.5”, 36 page comic book with colour covers and an eight page colour section. It also marks the official return of my characters Shrimpy and Paul. Previously, in 2004, Shrimpy and Paul appeared in a trade paperback all their own, Shrimpy and Paul and Friends (Highwater Books). They resurfaced in 2011 for a short story in the collection Pure Pajamas (Drawn & Quarterly) and Shrimpy appeared on his own (living with a group of green people) in Stroppy in 2015. Also: one needs not to have read WORN TUFF ELBOW #1 to enjoy this issue, these are all new stories. As you'd expect, especially if you have seen my publications before, WORN TUFF ELBOW #2 is jam-packed with a bunch of goofy stuff. These comic stories are all stand-alone yarns but the situations they set up will spill over into subsequent issues. "Monsieur Moustache and the Tale of the Baloney" is an extra special re-printing of a series of comics that appeared in my long lost weekly newspaper strip, Big Pile Presents (Wilder Hobson's Theater Absurd-o) but is new to the book format."
Expansion of summary note: Canada, Canadian, Ontario, idiosyncratic, social commentary, capitalism, consumerism, zany, absurd, whimsical, comix, Shrimpy and Paul
