Today, Paul Buhle is here with a review of two Steve Lafler releases, Doggie Style: The Complete Dog Boy and Death in Oaxaca #1.
Steve Lafler is one of those too-late-for-Underground-Comix artists who nevertheless reflected the satirical affect of the 1970s in all its daffy and sometimes dopey energy. Too bad he was only 16 in 1979. On the other hand, he’s a still pretty young fellow practicing his art from Oaxaca, Mexico, in the twenty-first century.
