Cartoonist, Minimum Wage, Bottomfeeder
Bob Fingerman is the creator of critically acclaimed graphic novels such as White Like She, Recess Pieces, and From the Ashes, as well as the novels Bottomfeeder and Pariah. In Bottomfeeder, Fingerman took on the vampire genre, tossing away the typical gothic and romantic trappings in favor of portraying the down to earth story of a working class Queens-bred bloodsucker. In the mid-90s, his series Minimum Wage won a devoted cult audience. In 2013 it was revised and collected in Image’s definitive Maximum Minimum Wage. Now Minimum Wage is back, better than ever and all new for 2014 and beyond.
