Leon Beyond in The 66 YEAR STINK!

USS Catastrophe and their pal Leon Beyond have an exhilirating new 7 page comic strip in this week's Riverfront Times. The best way to experience this sensational overload of facts (as well as the best way to meet singles in your area) is to get your fingers inky with an old-fashioned newsprint copy, but you can also read the story online at The RFT's site, or at Leon's Blog. Here are some DVD extras:

This totally rules. I'm going to be in town this weekend, so I hope I see one left laying around!

Also my friend in New Orleans called me last night (at 11 PM after getting home from a gig while my lame butt was in bed from an "exhausting" day of office work) to let me know that he'd gotten the print and that he loved it and it's now hanging in his kitchen. So THANKS!!!

They call slingers "garbage plates" in Rochester, N.Y. - didja know? It involves one other ingredient which I can't remember now.
