This rare set of eight small-format comics, created in 1986, is one of several collaborations between hot rod enthusiast Ed Roth and "Low Brow" underground cartoonist The Pizz.
Ed "Big Daddy" Roth (1932 - 2001) was an artist, cartoonist, illustrator, pinstriper and custom car designer and builder who created the hot rod icon Rat Fink and other characters. Roth was a key figure in Southern California's Kustom Kulture and hot rod movement of the late 1950s and 1960s, but he is perhaps best known for his grotesque caricatures depicting a variety of monstrosities driving his custom-built hot rods."The Pizz" (a.k.a. El Pizzo a.k.a. Stephen Pizzurro), the self-described Lowbrow who evolved into a celebrated influence to a generation of artists, died in 2015 at the age of 57. He caught his first big break working on Rat Fink comics for Ed Roth, who was The Pizz's personal inspiration. He went on to design cover art for punk label Sympathy, and eventually entered the gallery world with sympatico artists like Robert Williams. The Pizz was a familiar figure at openings and events, and he also made appearances on reality TV and in film documentaries.
