Big Book of Me (Hardcover) (Mark Bode)
about this item
Once upon a time, at two-thirty in the afternoon, on the enchanted island of York, lived a Wizard. Wearing a big hat to mask his identity, Cheech Wizard is a lascivious con man whose magical powers are questionable -- but despite his transgressions (or perhaps because of them), he possesses some degree of cosmic insight. He has met his maker (legendary underground cartoonist Vaughn Bodé, making a divine cartoon cameo), died and been reborn, and gained pop-culture immortality as a worldwide icon of hip hop and street art.For the first time, the Book of Me gathers all of Vaughn Bodé's seminal Cheech Wizard comics into a single essential volume, along with rare and previously unpublished sketches and Cheech's outrageous continued adventures by Mark Bodé. It's the biggest, baddest, ball-bustingest Book of Cheech ever!
Vaughn Bodé created Cheech Wizard?a hat with legs, a lascivious con-man who nevertheless possesses some degree of cosmic insight?in 1956, at the age of 15, and the character remained a constant companion for the rest of Bodé?s life: surfacing in his college paper, underground comics, National Lampoon magazine, and more. The Big Book of Me omnibus collects all of the psychedelic drug-inspired, underground Cheech Wizard comics for the first time.
