Doofus, by Rick Altergott

Rick Altergott began his comics career in the early 1980s. By the end of this decade, he was publishing regularly in Cracked magazine. In the 1990s he published his small-press comic book 'Douche Bag Dougan' He is best known as the artist of 'Doofus', which has appeared in Peter Bagge's Hate, among others. Altergott has been doing this bizarre comics series, full of crass, sophomoric humor, with two pathetic losers for protagonists, since 1994.

In 2006 he published the biblical mini-comic about Saint Matthias. Together with his wife and fellow cartoonist Ariel Bordeaux, he has contributed to the Kramers Ergo anthology. They also created the comic book 'Raisin Pie', which is published by Fantagraphics.
