Think of a Peanuts for paranoids, a Pogo for punks, or a Popeye for the postmodern. Above all else, think funny - real gut-bucket, hold-your-bowels funny. Of course, you're thinking of Kaz's fourth collection of his Harvey Award-nominated weekly comic strip, Underworld, which debuted in 1993 in the pages of The New York Press and is currently syndicated nationally in over a dozen metropolitan newspapers. Underworld has the look and feel of a classic comic strip, but upon closer inspection, it's every bit as warped, biting, and hilarious as today's jaded audiences demand. Underworld is stuffed with almost-parodies of famous comic strip characters, featuring a healthy dose of cigarette smoking cats, cute little saccharin-cuddly creatures, grim reapers, media-damaged kids, and more - all destined for a sardonic smashing in typically-acerbic Kaz fashion. Woeful whimsy and vicious pathos have never been so funny!
