Stuck Rubber Baby HC
by Howard Cruse
Published by Vertigo
216p, b&w, hardcover, 7"x9.25"
Cruse's classic graphic novel about a young man growing into political and sexual awareness in the civil rights era South gets a new print edition. SRB combines the obsessional attention to drawing a la Kim Deitch with the straightforward gay-minded storytelling of Dykes to Watch Out For. Following the flawed and conflicted protagonist, Toland, proves to be both frustrating and rewarding, ultimately able to cut into the realities of its time and place. -EF
