Charles and Alan Fistick - Grinner and Flourface, fraternal twins, bitter rivals - grow up in the virtual quarantine of the Freaktown ghetto, where it's safe. As safe as any place can be when you're stange and the world is paranoid, terroized by hot wars, rampaging nihilist gangs and the orbiting nuclear arsenals of a dozen international powers. At least in Freaktown, the Normals can't hurt you.

That he was so obviously and openly surprised when I did mystified, amused, and charmed me at the time, and it still does. The first novel, Funny Papers , published by Viking in , was set in the late s, the era of the great New York City press rivalry between Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst, a rivalry that gave birth to the modern newspaper now pretty much defunct with its preposterously gaudy and abundant Sunday edition, the centerpiece of which was the color comics supplement also now pretty much defunct.
During those Years in the Wilderness, so to speak, I met and became friendly with Art Spiegelman, who at that time was working on the first part of Maus while also editing RAW magazine with his wife Francoise Mouly. By then I no longer had a book editor or a literary agent, but I did have a lot of bills every month, so I kept abandoning the manuscript to take on whatever writing work was offered to me, some of it fun—like writing a film script for Alex Proyas—and some of it not so much fun—like writing book reviews for Entertainment Weekly.
Art, bless his heart, could be that way, sometimes; a wee bit…hectoring. Now, Art had recently won a special Pulitzer Prize for Maus in , and by this time anything, practically anything at all, that he wanted to do, would happen.
