Baja: A Bughouse Book: Volume 2by Steve Lafler (Artist)
Set in an "insect noir" Manhattan of the early fifties, BugHouse is a jazz band built on an ensemble of characters, who are essentially human beings with bug-like features. In Baha, Bones the bass player, youngest member of premier jazz band Bughouse, is on the lam from the law! Framed by gangster Johnny Muggles, Bones heads south to Mexico while things cool off in Bugtown. Intrigue, romance and some very funky rockin" blues ensue as our man Bones hooks up with a group of Mexican musicians. Throw in a spooky local legend about a seductive sorceress, and you have an edgy and illuminating coming of age story for Bones the bass player. Never has a more "human" portrait of drug addiction been portrayed, and never before has the art of music felt more alive and real on the printed page.
