Garbage Pail Kids-a series of collectible stickers produced by
Topps in the 1980s-combined spectacular artwork and over-the-top
satire. The result was an inspired collaboration between
avant-garde cartoonists and humorists including Art Spiegelman,
Mark Newgarden, John Pound, Tom Bunk, and Jay Lynch. A new
generation of fans continues to embrace this pop-culture phenomenon
as Garbage Pail Kids stickers are still being published. Now, for
the first time, all 206 rare and hard-to-find images from Series 1
through 5 are collected in an innovative package, along with a
special set of four limited-edition, previously unreleased bonus
stickers. This exciting follow up to Wacky Packages is
guaranteed to appeal to die-hard collectors as well as a new
generation of fans.
Praise for Garbage Pail Kids:
"If you ask me, reliving my time with Bad
Breath Seth and Potty Scotty is worth the cover price alone."
"I worried that [the Garbage Pail Kids] might seem too
time-bound for their own good; but if anything, 27 years later,
they're more poignant. Maybe it's because I'm a worried, concerned
adult, but more likely it's because nothing is ever as funny as it
is when you're ten years old-and everything is a lot scarier."
"The book is a wonderfully designed tribute to
these shit-disturbing cards in all their graphic, full-color
"There''s a lot of interesting stuff in Spiegel
man''s intro, and in the afterward by John Pound, the artist who
originated and drew the bulk of the Kids. But the real reason to
buy this book is for the graphic brilliance of the art itself…"
