Wag My Gristle
From The Stool Pigeon, April '10.
My apologies to the late Ron Asheton, guitar god.
I got the dumb idea for this sickening story after watching 2 different tv interviews of Iggy - one as James Osterburg , the mild mannered golfer, and another where he was in character as Iggy the wrinkly hellraiser. I figured he obviously must have a switch somewhere to alternate between the 2 characters. Add a few penis faced children and a bucket of pus, and voila!
Originally the sequence with the hand going into the pocket was to be stretched out to about 10 panels, with the hand (in slow motion) going into the pocket, out of the pocket and slowly reaching out, accompanied by detailed descriptions of the movements of the fingers and the hairs on the back of the hand. Maybe it's a good thing I only get 2 pages to express myself.
