Trash Pail Kids– a series of collectible stickers produced by Topps in the 1980s– combined amazing artwork and excessive satire. The result was an inspired partnership 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 welcome this pop-culture phenomenon as Garbage Pail Children stickers are still being published. Now, for the very first time, all 206 rare and hard-to-find images from Series 1 through 5 are collected in an ingenious bundle, along with an unique set of four limited-edition, previously unreleased reward sticker labels. This exciting follow up to Wacky Plans is guaranteed to appeal to die-hard collectors as well as a brand-new generation of fans. Applaud for Garbage Pail Kids: . ” If you ask me, reliving my time with Foul breath Seth and Potty Scotty deserves the cover rate alone.”– USAToday.com. ” I worried that [the Trash Pail Kids] may appear too time-bound for their own great; however if anything, 27 years later, they’re more poignant. Maybe it’s since I’m a worried, concerned grownup, however more likely it’s because nothing is ever as funny as it is when you’re ten years old– and whatever is a lot scarier.”– CapitalNewYork.com. ” The book is a wonderfully designed homage to these shit-disturbing cards in all their graphic, full-color magnificence.”– ComicsBeat.com. . ” There’s a great deal of interesting things in Spiegelman’s introduction, and in the afterward by John Pound, the artist who came from and drew the bulk of the Kids. But the real reason to purchase this book is for the graphic brilliance of the art itself …”– Boston Phoenix.
