GRIMES: “Not only was Weird Dick and the Professor my first published comic page, it was also my second! Already a reprint. Steve [Bissette]‘s friend Jack Venooker was good enough to include it in what I thought was a more apt place for it. Authentic underground flavor.
He told me on the phone, at that time, it reminded him of early Mickey Mouse.
There was going to be a second issue, but don’t believe it ever came about.” –RG 12 /22/’08
