Bumperhead, Hardback Book

Bumperhead Hardback

Hardback

Description

"Love and Rockets author Gilbert Hernandez returns with Bumperhead, a companion book to Marble Season.

Whereas Marble Season explored the exuberant and occasionally troubled existence of the wide-eyed pre-teen Huey, Bumperhead zeroes in on disaf--fected teenhood with its protagonist Bobby, a young slacker who narrates his life as it happens but offers very little reflection on the events that transpire.

Bobby lives in the moment exclusively, and is incapable of seeing the world outside of his experiences.

He comes of age in the 1970s, making a rapid progression through that era's different subcultures - in a short period of time he segues from a stoner glam-rocker to a drunk rocker to a speed-freak punk.

He drifts in and out of relationships with friends, both male and female.

Life zooms past him.
