Jim Pinkowski

Another fan artist of the early 70's with some crazy good skills


  1. he created a comic strip in the late 70s or early 80s, which dealt with issues like the monetary system. they gave away samples at a comic shop in berkeley that he did an ad for. the last strip was a rage against the banking system, ending with a cry for something to be done. a few years later, he took hostages at the bank of america down the street, no injuries, he just wanted a platform to talk about his concerns. i think he is a born again christian now. the mighty can fall. i love his art.

  2. Wow, I had no idea about the Dog Day Afternoon stuff (or the monetary system stuff), but I sure dug his fanzine stuff
