Since 1989, when J.C. Duffy began syndicating “The Fusco Brothers,” Axel (the Brothers’ faithful companion) has been described as “maybe a dog, maybe a wolverine.”
On March 19, Axel announces in the strip what he really is, and he’s not too happy about the outcome, judging from the single tear that falls from his eye.
“Come Here Often? Bad Pickup Lines FromThe Fusco Brothers,” is Duffy’s latest book available on Lulu.com. Other collections of “The Fusco Brothers” published by Andrews McMeel Publishing include “Meet the Fusco Brothers,” “Cruel and Unusual” and “Virtual Banality.” Duffy has also published a book of his drawings called "Moot Points," and has appeared in many New Yorker anthologies. He also writes and draws a daily blog called Night Deposits, which is pretty darn hilarious.
