Is Bob Fingerman a cynical misanthrope or a disappointed humanitarian? Dare we suggest maybe both? In You Deserved It, the sensitive creator of the acclaimed graphic novel Beg the Question accesses his darker side, serving up this caustic collection of comical cautionary chronicles. What Beg the Question was to sex and romance, You Deserved It is to wanton violence and social wrongness.
From "Otis Goes Hollywood," the epic saga of a homicidally puritanical meat packer with dreams of making it big in Hollywood, to "Missing Pieces," a yarn about the extracurricular activities of paramedics, to "Buying Bologna," about a guy who just really, really loves his luncheon meat, to "Yiffy Situation," a fuzzy fable about fornicating Furries, You Deserved It serves up enough yarns to make one hilariously misanthropic sweater, all in living - and dying - color!
Bob Fingerman is the award-winning creator of such critically acclaimed graphic novels as Beg the Question, White Like She, and Recess Pieces. In his novel, Bottomfeeder, Fingerman tossed away the typical gothic and romantic trappings of the vampire genre in favor of portraying the down-to-earth story of a working class Queens-bred vampire. In Recess Pieces, Fingerman whipped up a bloody maelstrom of adorable moppets and the living dead set within the confines of a school.
