Once again Brian Walsby and the Melvins have teamed up to produce a uniquely collectable, rare and limited release. In Brian's 4th book, Walsby inks his legendary comic satire, wit and illustrative skill over 100 pages. Brian's comics have been published in major publications for over 25 years. His work has appeared in magazines ranging from Maximumrocknroll and Flipside to Hustler and Chunklet. Brian's art has graced the cover of many an album - from Seven Seconds' "Walk Together Rock Together" and the classic Nardcore compilation to current bands like the Melvins and Agoraphobic Nosebleed. Brian Walsby's illustrations continue to rile people, make them laugh and keep them wanting more. Never mind the fact that Mr. Walsby has been the drummer for Polvo, Snake Nation, Ryan Adams, Double Negative, Scared Straight etc. As for the Melvins; what can we say? They've been at it for over 25 years. They've released 16 full length albums and countless singles. They continue to tour the world and play to an enormous fan base of freakishly ravenous devotees.
