Summary, etc. note: Take a trip to the amusing and poignant Duplex Planet. The Duplex Planet started in 1979 as a small, self-Xeroxed fanzine by David Greenberger. In 20 years, it has become a veritable cottage industry and endless source of inspiration for Greenberger. The Duplex Planet features stories and conversations that Greenberger had with the residents of the Duplex Nursing Home in Boston, where he worked in the late-1970s and '80s. Greenberger presents the beauty and comical wisdom of the often-bizarre and occasionally poignant things said by his elderly friends. Greenberger never imposes his own worldview, allowing the residents to quietly flesh themselves into some of the more remarkable characters in contemporary literature. No More Shaves presents these stories in comics form, interpreted by many of today's best cartoonists, including Dave Cooper, Jason Lutes, Rick Altergott, and more. Too frequently the elderly are ignored or denied a voice in our contemporary culture; Greenberger allows them the opportunity to share their opinions, wit and creativity in ways rarely experienced by many. No More Shaves builds on Greenberger's text by further humanizing the residents of the Duplex Nursing Home through the comics medium; the sympathetic lines of these excellent cartoonists give them immediate life and form.
