Misspent Youths

Once upon a time there was an entry for Misspent Youths over at Wikipedia. In 2009 someone there decided that the comic wasn’t culturally significant or relevant enough and deleted the entry. Fortunately plenty of content farms had already grabbed the text so it was easy for me to find and preserve as well. The description of the series is better than anything I would have come up with -

Misspent Youths was an independent comic book by David Lee Ingersoll from the early 1990s, running only five issues. Reflecting a punk aesthetic even edgier at times than the Hernandez Bros.’ Love and Rockets, it dealt with two homeless youth, Moe and Detritus, and their friends in a dark urban landscape filled with drugs, gangs, clubs, and music. The stories were complex, very anti-authoritarian, and the humor rich and sardonic.

I’ll be posting all of the Misspent Youths material here at Skookworks. It will take a little time to scan and format but it’s on its way.
