Hoofjob Hits the Streets
Hoofjob, (102 pages), is the debut collection of underground comics by Pacific Northwest artist and writer Geoffrey Reed.
A one-page strip that first appeared on the Internet in 2008, Hoofjob is a crudely drawn gag comic that focuses on pop culture and taboos in all their formats. Sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll, race, religion … no topic is left unskewed.
Drawn in a cartoon style influenced by artists such as Don Martin, these silly images clash jarringly with the dark, disturbing narratives. Salty Peters and Dick Smalls appear throughout the book as two bumbling n’er do wells. Hoofjob Comics is filled with dick jokes, scatological humor, profanity and cartoon nudity.
“I’ve been drawing this particular comic for over a year now,” Geoffrey says, “and it’s great to see it all coming together in this book. My target audience is readers who appreciate dark, adult humor. I started reading comics at an early age. Stuff like MAD Magazine, the National Lampoon and the like were obvious early influences. Don Martin’s work at MAD in particular struck a chord with me, but the underground stuff—Crumb, Peter Bagge, Johnny Ryan, Joe Matt, and Sam Henderson—are my most direct influences.”
Geoffrey Reed has contributed to the public access shows See The Light, Future Cop, and J.W. Jurkhoff’s Wacky Home Videos. In the late 1990s he was a founding member of the rock group, The Den Mothers. He currently lives in the Ballard area of Seattle, Washington with many pets and one woman.
