Bonus Round: I really love anything inspired by the Underground
Comix scene (think Robert Crumb, Art Spiegelman, John R. Dilworth).
Alternative comics, cartoons, art (such as the typical stuff in
Juxtapoz magazine) are all awesome, and I positively drool over it
all. Something about their punk-like rawness and abandon of what
typically constitutes "great art" really gets to me.
