$20 Superpack: Ride the Wohl Whip (Cometbus)
Featuring Cometbus issues #51-54 plus the novel I Wish There Was Something I Could Quit and his collection Mixed Reviews, this superpack will get you pumped about the work of Mr. Aaron Cometbus! Despite publishing for 28 years, Cometbus remains relevant, poignant, and still attempts new things. In my favorite work of his ever, Aaron combines research and storytelling in issue #51, where he explores the characters and haunts of Berkeley bookselling dating back to the 1960s. When you crack that cover, you never know quite what to expect from him, whether it's a contributor issue, a topic cut down to its basic tenets and revealed for all to see, stories of talking to old friends, a trip to Cleveland, broken bones, or bizarre, self-destructive competitions on cross country tours with one of his many bands or those he accompanies as a roadie. Aaron tells it all, he knows how to write, and you love to read it. Even when it's not what you thought you wanted, it's great. Alternates include Cometbus #49 or Add Toner.
