In early 2014, Idea and Design Works, LLC (IDW) landed the licensing for the Garbage Pail Kids' brand name and characters from the Topps Company, Inc. under their IDW Publishing division, right in time for the 30th anniversary of GPK in May, 2015. The initial comic-book images started to appear around mid-year as Peter Bagge's new GPK character, Comic-Con RON, was posted to the interwebs -- closely followed by mock-up comic-book covers by Joe Simko and Mark Pingitore with the 'Puke-Tacular' tagline. Simko's Comic CONNER character was circulated heavily on several different Topps bonus and promotional cards as well as on IDW promotional items and Pingitore's NAT Nerd hit online advertising pretty hard during the comic-book convention season from July through October. The first 32-page 'One-Shot' GPK comic was released at the end of December; these anthology driven comics are usually unnumbered (the promo card does state #1) and loosely based around one subject matter. Topps is able to use the Topps freelance artist artwork as promotional or bonus material within their own sets and distribute the comic bonus cards for IDW; Brent Engstrom's excellent reiteration of Comic-Con RON is pictured above and can be found as a bonus card in the Deluxe Edition comic.


After all of the Bazooka Joe-like GPK comic card backs of the Original Series, the comic backs for the All-New Series sets and comic card backs for releases up to this day, it is only natural to see Garbage Pail Kids obtain a regular sized comic-book adaptation. Above is pictured Jeff Zapata and Jay Lynch's one-page comic pitch sample to Topps during the All-New Series GPK heyday.

RELEASE PERIOD : DECEMBER 2014

IDW Website:
Remember mullets and teased bangs? Stonewashed denim jackets and jeans? Well, not everything about the ‘80s was lame, because that’s when the Garbage Pail Kids ruled the world! Those irreverent, satirical stickers quickly became a pop-culture phenomenon, but they never had their own comic book… until now! In the spirit of the avant-garde cartoonists and humorists who fathered these miscreants, a new generation of alternative-comics creators has lent their unique talents to bring the Garbage Pail Kids into the wacky world of comics— just in time for their 30th birthday!

The IDW Garbage Pail Kids comic anthology is partly helmed by Peter Bagge (best known for his Hate and Neat Stuff comics) who helps open the comic-book with a four page story involving the zaniness of conventions that stars NAT Nerd and newcomer character Comic-Con RON in their plight for swag at any cost in Collect'em All. Bill Wray, who has written and directed episodes of the Ren & Stimpy Show, takes us on an explosive seven page (literal) $#!TSTORM story with wonder twins Potty SCOTTY and JASON Basin'burster' along with fellow talent Hilary Barta, Jason Millet, Robbie Robbins and Denton J. Tipton. I always considered these twins cleaning the bowl, not really filling the can, so it was an unexpected twist and story for these two charactes; you might remember Bill Wray did the final artwork for OS10 cards 403a HUNTER Punter and 403b Fractured FRANCIS. Writer Shaun Manning and GPK artist Mark Pingitore with lettering by Robbie Robbins gives us a bird's-eye view through Live MIKE of what it's like to be a velvet-rope guest at a Con Crud'vention. Vito Delsante and Dean Haspiel give us a one-page lesson on s#!tting a brick in More Roughage, Less Suffrage. The last two installments help the first GPK comic anthology end strongly, the four page How To Be a Garbage Pail Kid 101 is written and superbly illustrated by GPK artist Joe Simko, possibly the most humanized story of the lot; minus the human, it's what I envisioned the GPK comic to be. Jeff Zapata, who has worked extensivly with the All-New Series GPK line, rounds out the comic book with a wonderful PSA-like four page story The Shocking Truth that includes GPKid Fryin' BRIAN with help from Fred Wheaton and legend Jay Lynch with inking. A mock-up 'Phantom' variant cover (retail version) with ADAM Bomb on the cover, the original card image, was created but never never realized -- although, rumored to be a haux.


Although comic card backs didn't hit the Garbage Pail Kids scene until the 6th Series set, the 5th Series card fronts had a couple of comic-themed characters; cards 172a NAT Nerd and 172b CLARK Can't, whom make a predominant appearance in the first IDW GPK comic installment, as well as cards 184b Upside Down DONALD and 184b HUGH Turn. GPK comic card backs, a parody of Topps' Bazooka Joe gum comics, would have a reoccuring roll in the Garbage Pail Kids sets and later be known as The Garbage Gang starting in with 9th Series set.

UNPUBLISHED "ZOMBURGERS!" COMIC


'CLICK' PIC TO VIEW COMIC : TOP OF PAGE


Brent Engstrom had two such unreleased works from the IDW comic book days, in a black and white concept stage only; he has graciously allowed me to showcase his unpublished GPK comic artwork and story and have 'Mad MIKE' Boyajian process the coloring. The second of the two comics, showcased first, includes GPK all-stars Grilled GIL (OS7), Ghost TORY (ANS7), Dead TED (OS1), WAYNE N Moon (2014S1) and a human character that is reminiscent of Mel from Mel's Diner (on "Alice"). The first comic co-stars NAT Nerd (OS5), JANET Planet (OS2) and an anonymous human.



UNPUBLISHED "PILE O' COMICS" STRIP


'CLICK' PIC TO VIEW COMIC : BOTTOM OF PAGE


Artists that were signed on to create comic artwork for IDW's at-the-time forthcoming GPK comic book, surrounding the 30th anniversary hype, were instructed to submit their stories. No clear instruction was given and IDW eventually went with a very thematic compilation format -- so, many initial submissions did not make it into the comic book releases. IDW's approach was also very heavy on underground artists and their interpretive ideas, thus leaving out the core group of actual GPK artists from most of the project. If one were to compile the published works from Simko, Engstrom and Zapata into one comic, with Pingitore's covers and Engstrom's bonus cards, it would be a very strong comic... unfortuantely, the guest spots outweighed the GPK heavy hitters.











UNPUBLISHED 'VERTIGOO' COMIC SAMPLES




The story (VERTIGOO) is based around a few of the major Garbage Pail Kids characters (Messy Tessie, Anna Banana, and Nasty Nick) along with a few cameos with other GPKs.


THE STORY: begins with Messy Tessie visiting her psychiatrist on a rainy day. Dr. Sigmund Fraud is trying to help her cure her fear of heights, but she would rather be at the mall with her best friend Anna Banana. As she sits in the waiting room with Wacky Jackie she notices a drenched bat clinging to the window. She rescues the bat (Nicholas) and agrees to take him back to his house on the outskirts of town (monster mansion). Nicholas gives her a tour of the mansion which includes helping her with her vertigo by taking her to the high bell tower. In exchange she promises to help him with his fear of the dark. In the meantime, back at Dr. Fraud's office, Anna Banana shows up to meet Messy Tessie and finds out from Wacky Jackie the she left with Nicholas. Realizing that she has been fooled by Nicholas (the vampire Nasty Nick in bat form) she rushes off to the monster mansion to save her friend. Back at the mansion, Nicholas convinces Messy Tessie to keep him company until dark in the bell tower. As the sun sets he transforms into the bloodsucking vampire Nasty Nick. Her friend Anna Banana arrives just in time to monkey her way up to the tower and throw garlic powder on Nasty Nick. He brushes it off and explains that only “fresh” garlic affects vampires, but Messy Tessie happens to be allergic to it and sneezes a giant wad of snot which fuses Nasty Nick to the tower bell. Then the girlfriends walk off into the sunset. The End. -- Steve Potter
