Format: Paperback
This is a high quality book, well designed and with LOADS of images - a great visual resource for those that love pulp comics, kitsch packaging, and hokey folk art.
Sometimes the text gets in the way, but as a former sort of goth I found this very entertaining.

Be prepared for a surprise! The pictures in this book are not as sweet and innocent as the picture on the cover.

This was not at all what I was expecting, a good quality book but do not be mislead by the cover.

More obviously photoshopped this time 24 Dec 2005
By HCarlton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was very delighted to find this one, while trying to show Happy Bunny Kitty Pony to a friend while at a bookstore. As a fan of macabre and kitsch I value the graphics and was ready to read the silly comments from Michael J. Nelson.

I did however, notice in this volume that some of the graphics appeared more photoshopped than Happy Bunny Kitty Pony. Too many nose rings and eyebrow rings. However all images are wonderfully presented in a vintage style and quite frankly "rock my socks."

Iconic nasties and pulp comic imagery, this is a damn good volume of the hopefully ongoing series.

Hilarious - and I AM a Goth! 10 July 2009
By Spiderbaby Fastwolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Oh my. I love MST3k so Mike Nelson's acerbic humor is pretty beloved. The vintage (often high 60 & 70s) graphics are charming and the wit is there. The Pop ink series is pretty consistent in terms of both satire and image quality and I honestly found this terrific.
A word to the wise; it really isn't about goths per se. It's mostly classic Mike Nelson rants about Halloween-type things (Frankenstein, Haunted Houses, etc.)
If you're looking for a more 'Goth' specific send up, check out Voltaire's "What Is Goth?". Fun and written by an actual scenester...
However, if you love vintage halloween and a good laugh, this is great!

This was purchased as a gift and the recipient loved it. Just pictures with a kid of 60s feel, sort of nostalgic. Covered in plastic.
Perfect for projects! 13 Mar 2013

I used this book for various art projects. Most pages I just framed and put up on my wall. The drawings are so cute >.< I would reccomend this book to keep around on the shelf or to use as art!
