Mel Bowling is the unhappy, out-of-touch creator of a very bad daily comic strip called Freddy Ferret. He spends most of his time listening to Rush Limbaugh and coming up with horrible catchphrases for his merchandise, while his 'sweatshop' team of artists do all the hard work. Sweatshop incorporates the radically inventive styles of such comics luminaries as Stephen DeStefano (Popeye) and Johnny Ryan (Prison Pit). Originally published by DC Comics in 2003 but never collected until now, this is a key work from one of the most under-appreciated comic voices.
