Weirdo no. 12 - edited by Peter Bagge
Weirdo is still in print isn't it? They are very good though I don't have that many issues. The best thing in this one is the classic Rory Hayes story (page of it above) 'The Keeper of the Mind - Popoff Hayes the Drug Fiend'. It's a great little tale and is the best introduction to Hayes in my opinion. This issue also has some cartooning by Peter Bagge (I've never read much of his stuff for some reason, though I like his drawing a lot) and a cool 80's Crumb story - 'Mode O'Day' about yuppies. 80's Crumb is very interesting to see, it's a lot different than the better known 60's stuff.
