The 40 Hour Man, written by Stephen Beaupre and illustrated by Steve Lafler, is the premier title from Manx Media. The chronicle of one working stiff’s journey into the minimum wage heart of the American Dream.
Is it a career or just a series of lame jobs? It’s all here from doing time as a miniature golf lackey, to going bust in the internet boom. Beaupre recounts skirmishes with bad bosses, crazy co-workers, sex, drugs and polyester uniforms as he delineates his quest to find and hang onto a job he can live with. Lafler supplies visual hilarity with his Mad Magazine inspired, slap-happy artwork.
