An Embarrassingly Pedestrian Teenage Cesspool

I just finished the third volume of "Hopeless Savages," a comic (I know, me reading a western comic?) about the family created when imaginary punk rocker Dirk Hopeless marries imaginary punk rocker Nikki Savage. The resulting children are named "Rat Bastard," "Arsenal Fierce," "Twitch Strummer," and "Skank Zero." The intro includes the words "Not only did I burgle the Louvreone Friday night, but my accomplices were Joe Strummer and that guy who played Jimmy in Quadrophenia. Winston Churchill drove the getaway car with a Mohican wig on so no one would recognize him," and the books also include the quote I used as the title of this post. What more do you need to know?
