Underworld: From Hoboken To Hollywood
In addition to his career as an Emmy-winning writer for animation (Cartoon Network’s Camp Lazlo, Disney’s Phineas and Ferb, and Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob Squarepants), Kaz has been unleashing his id and corrupting generations with his Harvey-nominated weekly Underworld comic strip since 1992.
Underworld hilariously depicts sordid doings in a surreal city, stuffed with almost-parodies of famous comic strip characters, a healthy dose of cigarette-smoking cats, cute little saccharin-cuddly creatures, media-damaged kids, and much more — all destined for a sardonic smashing in typically acerbic Kaz fashion. Kaz’s strip ran in many American alternative weeklies such as the New York Press and the SF Bay Guardian.
The Underworld: From Hoboken to Hollywood will be the first ever omnibus collection of the very best of the strip’s 23-year run, with annotations, photos, and other surprises from the author (along with a foreword by Mutts creator Patrick McDonnell).
