Funny Garbage #2 1987

One of the first Funny Garbage activities. Self-produced experimental art magazine that collected together art+comics+grafitti. Edited by Chris Capuozzo and Peter Girardi. Featuring the work of Harvey Kurtzman, Sarah Downs, Mark Marek, David Chimes, Chris Capuozzo, Peter Girardi, Paul Komoda, Mark Sunshine, Ion Farrell, Ben Jackson, Erni Newave, Mare 139, and Kurt Komoda. 50 pgs + 24 page mini comic.

This was our own realm to express our love and fanatacism for comics, pop culture and art.

The cover of each magazine was composed of two layers; clear plastic on top and hand colored cover stock on the bottom. The clear plastic overlay had a unique composition of several different labels. Some of the labels were made one night after hours at General Trade Mark Labelcraft (My dad's printing factory) by mixing colors in the inkwells as the press was running. Dick (my dad), Peter and me could be seen running up and down in front of the press adding different colors and watching the wild results. Inserted inside was "Nuthouse", a small 24 page mini-comic done by the hilarious (8 year old) David Chimes .
