STUCK RUBBER BABY TP NEW EDITION
Written by HOWARD CRUSE
Art and cover by HOWARD CRUSE

“Absolutely riveting . . . Maus, move over; a sa great graphic novel, you’ve met your match.” — BOOKLIST
“Complex, meticulously drawn . . . a gripping way to revisit those lurid days.” — THE WASHINGTON POST

The groundbreaking, award-winning semi-autobiographical graphic novel returns in a new edition featuring an introduction by Alison Bechdel, award winning author of Fun Home.
In the 1960s American South, a young gas-station attendant named Toland Polk is rejected from the Army draft for admitting “homosexual tendencies,” and falls in with a close-knit group of young locals yearning to break from the conformity of their hometown through civil rights activism, folk music and upstart communality of race-mixing, gay-friendly nightclubs. Toland’s story is both deeply personal and epic in scope, as his search for identity plays out against the brutal fight over segregation, an unplanned pregnancy and small-town bigotry, aided by an unforgettable supporting cast.
