staff_picksjustin_staff_picksJUSTIN’S PICK :: DIESEL SWEETIES: I’M A ROCKER I ROCK OUT: Being a child of the 80s, 8-bit graphics appeal to my lizard brain. I am quite susceptible to their charms, charms that clearly have antecedents in 50s ad mascots, the work of Ernie Bushmiller, and so on. Richard Stevens’ strip Diesel Sweeties only compounds that appeal with a heavy dose of postmodern irony and self-deprecation. This volume – titled I’m a Rocker I Rock Out – is a best-of sampling of the long-running webcomic. For those of you who think “webcomic” is a dirty word…I count myself among you, but we must bear in mind: print is the final trial. It separates the men from the boys.
