PS– Some of you might have noticed that I reorganized the order of the posts on Cock Robin and Rosetta Stone. I moved some newer material toward the beginning of the stories where it can help introduce the characters more effectively. I also pulled out the “Confessions of a Horny and Slightly Mad Cartoonist” section. It will be republished at a later date, when chronologically consistent.

@Nat- Like the real Kurt Cobain, Nurdt was both a collector of dolls and a doll artist. Cobain was especially attracted to old, broken or damaged dolls. The painting he made for the “Incesticide” cover depicts opium poppies and two unusual dolls. In Zombie Punk Nurdt is shown cradling a similar doll, his own creation, and declaring there was “no way” he would sell it.
