This omnibus and retrospective collects the best of 23 years of cartoonist Kaz’s alt-weekly comic strip.The Big Book of Underworld is the first-ever omnibus of the very best of the alternative weekly strip’s 23-year run, with annotations, photos, and other surprises from the author (along with a foreword by Mutts creator Patrick McDonnell). Kaz's strip hilariously depicts sordid doings in a surreal city, stuffed with almost-parodies of famous comic strip characters, a healthy dose of cigarette smoking cats, cute little saccharin-cuddly creatures, media-damaged kids, and much more all destined for a sardonic smashing.
