Slake your thirst for rare comix —salvaged from deep within the maw of the Last Gasp treasure chest —gleaming Underground Booty!
Comix but not comix! Robert Scotellaro's Yuckamobe looks like a comic on the outside... and was produced in the Underground scene —but the inside is filled with sex and drug-infused prose and poetry! Great stoned-out cover by Jim Osborne.
"yuckamobe took off her blouse
there was a mole on her back that looked like
a bust of lincoln
one of her nipples was shaped like a dried
she had a tattoo of a swasticka dreaming of a
peace sign (in color)
a birthmark that looked like a french
poodle with a motorcycle jacket on"

Robert Scotellaro is a noted master of flash fiction. His short fiction has appeared in hundreds of print and online journals and anthologies, including Flash Fiction International by W.W. Norton. He is the author of five chapbooks and full-length books of flash fiction, including his most recent, What We Know So Far.
Scotellaro’s fiction is informed by his varied life. He went from doing advertising layouts for Barnes & Noble to serving as a combat medic and a ward-master in a makeshift Mash-like medical unit in Vietnam. He’s played bongos on stage while Allen Ginsberg recited poetry, chummed about in San Francisco’s Underground Comix scene with famed cartoonists Robert Crumb and Art Spiegelman, and helped found Earth People’s Park in Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
