A buddy of mine from Southern California who's a big fan of the band The Supersuckers and lead man Eddie Spaghetti in particular, was recently at one of their shows and purchased some very personal and high-end merch.
He wanted to commemorate this and thank the band somehow so he came up with a comics idea and asked me to draw it.
This is what happened.
There's a little side story to this. Way back in 2015 (was it really 4 months ago? Seems like yesterday.) I declared that Chevy Chase would be dead by New Years. Nathan bet me $50 that he wouldn't be. This was the most entertainment value that Chevy Chase (all due respect) had provided me with since 1989, so I agreed.
New Years came and went and there were no stories of Chase's body being found by a hotel maid or a woman he was having an affair with or anything. Sigh. Chevy you let me down again. There I was owing $50 over this P.O.S (all due respect).
Nathan, being a kind-hearted soul said I could keep the money and we'd call it even if we collaborated on a few ideas he had. I figured that was a much better and more fun idea and I didn't want to keep adding to my half a century old Chevy Chase deficit fund. My bank account was still smarting from the Chevy Chase movies I had paid to see. Fletch II anyone? Modern Problems? Under the motherfucking Rainbow????? Actually, even as a stupid 18 year old I could tell that last one was going to suck and pocketed my $4.
Anyway, to make a short story long, I figured it would be much more fun to put energy into something positive like drawing Eddie Spaghetti.
Talk to you soon.
