Best Indie Comic Collection (2002)

Captain Missiletoe: The First Collection 2000-2001

Artist/illustrator Lucas Richards's work may be familiar to buyers of local recordings: He's done covers for the Volts, the Dinnermints and the Pindowns, among others. But it's within the pages of Starving Magpie, a quarterly comic-book-style publication, that his vision is most fully realized. Richards and collaborator Soapy Argyle -- an area guitarist who crafts Starving's stories -- have compiled a year's worth of issues in a volume titled Captain Mis-

siletoe: The First Collection 2000-2001. Named for the tragicomic superhero who stars in most of the pen-drawn capers, the low-budget but creatively rendered collection is available at such cultural outposts as Wax Trax, WaterCourse Foods and the Buffalo Exchange.
