It is the year 1988, and two 14-year-old high school misfits and nerds -- named Mike Butski and Ronald Foule -- have a fight in the Oswegonian High School hallways, then drag Chris Crusher into their spat. This seemingly meaningless high school disagreement birthed a twenty year grudge match which spreads all the way to the "Chrusher: End Cycle" graphic novel. Witness the humble beginnings of the "ChrusherComix" universe and watch it grow from an amateur, silly serial in a high school notepad twenty years ago to a full-fledged comic book today. The complete collection begins with this issue, which is itself a collection of the first three mini-issues in normal comic book format. Enjoy!
In the late 1980s at an everyday high school in Oswegonia, a war is brewing between a band of nerds and misfits known as The Welforce, inept and corrupt school faculty, low-level criminal masterminds, and a band of teen quasi-vigilantes known as The Conquerors - led by a lad known as Chris Crusher - or Chrusher for short. Starting in 1988 when 14-year-old Christopher Galletta Stevens drew a comic book in high school study hall to entertain himself and his friends. The book continued ever since, and -- after never seeing print and being in storage for two decades -- has now finally seen publication! Read the exciting, humorous, and highly action-packed "sketchbook with a storyline" from the first crappily-done issues! The saga ends in the new interrelated -- but not interdependent -- "Chrusher: End Cycle" - which is also being printed simultaneously
Originally created, written and illustrated as a "Sketchbook with a Storyline", the series started in 1988 by the then-14-year-old creator and continued until roughly 2000. However, the series never saw publication until 2009 when the author found Ka-Blam.
This series is a direct precursor to 'Chrusher: End Cycle'. Although it is interrelated, it is meant to be interdependent. This means that the vast majority of the series could be considered canon, but can stand on its own as a separate series. Most of 'ChrusherComix Classics' contains humor with action and adventure, while 'Chrusher: End Cycle' takes more of a thriller vein with drama, and eroticism while keeping the action/adventure elements of the original 'Classics' series.
