The Caterer

One of the weirdest books you'll ever read is by my pal, Steve Aylett, and it's titled Lint. (You can order it through the Amazon link below.)

Lint is the "biography" of Jeff Lint, poverty-stricken, mad genius, hack writer, who is basically a cross between Kilgore Trout and Salvador Dali.

One of Lint's fictional creations was a comic-book character dubbed "The Caterer." And now you can read an actual issue of this gonzo masterpiece, thanks to Floating World Comics. A sample is to the right.

You must investigate this saga of one man and his senseless quest for perfect absurdity in a violent world, or risk being rendered null and void!

Sorry Paul, no tingly spider powers. No web crawling. Just can't make the change.

Is it his smirk or his "Stillness" that makes us love him so?

is lint a real person or is this a story within a story. a comic book 'by' a fictional character in a fictional book?

This is possibly the greatest weird find ever! I'm buying it for all my weird children.

This reminds me of the rantings of Francis E Dec, but now I have more pictures to go along with the rants. 😛
