Summer officially begins now, with the release of Lisa Hanawalt's Hot Dog Taste Test! This flexi-like hardcover volume delivers 180 pages of Ms. Hanawalt's full color comics mayhem. Nothing is spared: shopping, cooking, eating, farting -- it's all here! Along with birds, corporate iconography, horses, picnics, travel and more. In addition to comics, there are reproductions of sculptures, photographs, watercolors and hybrid combintations of all of the above. It's a crazy hodgepodge of energetic, sillly and highly satiric humor.
