Car Busters's second book, "Roadkill Bill" by Ken Avidor, is "a comic strip on cars, technology and philosophy from the viewpoint of a frequently squashed rodent." Avidor gives voice to the suffering soul of humanity that feels bulldozed and paved over by industrial technology run amok. You may have already seen some of the strips in Car Busters magazine (that is, if you've been paying attention), on the Roadkill Bill web site, or if you're from Minneapolis, every week in Pulse of the Twin Cities. But the book will collect these strips together for the first time.
To view the comic strips found in the book, go to Ken's archive at http://www.roadkillbill.com.Also there are a few reviews of the book available.
Retail price: EUR 10, USD 10, GBP 6.50, AUD 18 or 150 CZK.
