The Collected Hutch Owen
How does a committed social revolutionary fight the power when the power is co-opting his own radical philosophy as a marketing tool? This is but one of the dilemmas facing Hutch Owen ("The Street Pole Dissident") in "Working Hard," the classic story which opens this collection chronicling the inherently ironic social and political fabric of the 1990s. Artist Tom Hart wields his dip-pen with the gentle dexterity of a Charles Schulz and the critical humor of a Jules Feiffer. This makes an excellent introduction to Hart's deceptively complex work.
