Yay! They always bring back the oldies but goodies. Remember how the Garbage Pail Kids made your mom cringe? But she’d cave in a buy a pack for you anyway? Now you can share of that old-school gutter humor with your own kids with the Garbage Pail Kids Hardcover Book.
A bit like a stroll down memory lane, each card you see will rehash memories you thought were buried in the dumpster part of your brain as you turned into an adult. Some of us have a hard time coming to terms the whole adult thing, and that’s okay. No matter if you hated the GPKs or were obsessed with them, you have to admit that the whole concept was a rotten stroke of genius.
Garbage Pail Kids—a series of collectible stickers produced by Topps in the 1980s—combined spectacular artwork and over-the-top satire. The result was an inspired collaboration between avant-garde cartoonists and humorists including Art Spiegelman, Mark Newgarden, John Pound, Tom Bunk, and Jay Lynch. A new generation of fans continues to embrace this pop-culture phenomenon as Garbage Pail Kids stickers are still being published. Now, for the first time, all 206 rare and hard-to-find images from Series 1 through 5 are collected in an innovative package, along with a special set of four limited-edition, previously unreleased bonus stickers. This exciting follow up to Wacky Packages is guaranteed to appeal to die-hard collectors as well as a new generation of fans.
