Issue Summary: We meet Senator Stephen D. Foule, who has a somewhat peculiar relationship with a beautiful assistant, and his son, Ronald S. Foule, while Chace and Neeja meet up with the M.E..
And don't forget about the interrelated but independent prelude to the above graphic novel - ChrusherComix "Classics". Started when the author was in high school as a sketchbook with storyline, "Chris' Crusher Comics" evolved into ChrusherComix, an ongoing comic book series filled with largely comedy, action, and adventure. The above graphic novel is the mature finale to the below series, but does not need the original series to stand on its own.
Galletta's Karting Club is a free gas flathead kart racing league that holds an annual points series via weekly races June through October behind Galletta's Greenhouse in Oswego, New York. Established in the early 1990s, we race professionally for backyard yard kart prices. Most karting divisions cost a few grand to enter let alone even competing for wins. Not us. We rebelled against the philosophy of standard WKA-type rule sets and created a simple, easy and affordable rule set and method to keep the speeds close, competition closer, and all while being the most affordable karting club in the area and likely the country. Feel free to view any of our highlight reel videos on YouTube. Entire races are available (complete races in DVD quality are available on DVD for only $5 per disc).
Our karts are 1-Wheel-Drive Gas Flathead racing karts - hybrid machines that are somewhat between a racing flat kart and a yard kart, taking the best points of both. Our motors are standard 5hp Briggs and Stratton L-Head/flathead engines with gas stock carburetors, and the only racing mods are non-slapper racing cams and shaved heads. We run 45-60 laps every weekend June through September, and finish our points season with our annual 200-Lap "Klassic" Championship, which we've run since 1996. We have one class, equalizing weight differences by weight and gearing, making everyone almost completely identical in speed, forcing driver skill to decide the outcome, and not money spent or craftiness cheating. With speeds close to most racing classes (on a local kartway, we timed less than a second slower than classes that cost 10 times as much as ours), and the largest class in the area (averaging between 8-15 karts topping at around 20-30 different drivers a year while most other classes equal 3-10 with only around 3-15 different drivers per year), and by far the tightest competition in the area (we average 6-12 different winners per year and the closest points race in the area). We also have the most experienced drivers in the area, with most of our drivers having 5-20 years racing experience on our club that has existed since 1990, while other baring divisions and tracks have existed for less than 5 years. Judging by all of this, we believe that we are the best competition for the dollar in any racing division in the area and quite possibly the world. You can watch our races, or join us by simply entering a race - all for free. We are not a business, we are a not-for-profit backyard racing club - we do all of this because we are all racers who want to race and are not interested in making a buck or gaining worldwide fame and fortune off of a hobby.

"CLASSIC CHRIS THE CRUSHER COMICS" ARCHIVE - A.K.A. CLASSIC CHRUSHERCOMIX:
"Classic Crusher Comics" is the interrelated, though interdependent prequel comic book series to the above graphic novel. The series innocently enough started based in a high school setting in the late 1980s and early 1990s and is largely a character-driven comedy with slapstick humor artistically crafted with the focus of gleeful humiliation via carefully crafted violence and soul-destruction, morphing secretly hidden elements of an epic story arc that stretches decades, it is an exercise in precise plot progression over a long series. The archived comic is an amateur "sketchbook with a storyline" that the author created, wrote, and illustrated between 1988-1999 in his teens and twenties, with occasional retcon updates thrown in when the author feels like building on the past stories or tying up loose ends that he left for future coverage. It also features fan-art comics by the author's friends, which the author puts into the story as canon spin-offs of the series. It's just fun, folks... and hell, if YOU wanted to join the cast, make a character and story and pass it by the author... maybe - if you "get" the author's intent and don't contradict the author - you'll be the next character or story arc! That's how the story was written, and what makes it infectious to those involved and a unique slap in the face to today's era of now clichéd postmodernism and deconstructionism focusing on nonsensical pop culture references and a thinly veiled hatred of traditional political, economic and religious institutions guided by the politically motivated biases of the Fabian socialists. This unpublished comic book features mostly character-driven comedic material with action/adventure subplots from the author's sketchbooks and notebooks. Enjoy:
Winner of: 1st place in The Empire State School Press Association's "Best Cartoon of the Academic Year."1st & 2nd Place three times in three years in The Syracuse Newspapers Post-Standard Editorial Writing & Cartoon Contest! I created, wrote, and illustrated this unpublished amateur comic book during my teenage and twenties from 1988 through 1999. This character-driven "sketchbook with a storyline" was intended to be an action/adventure comedy for and about teens and/or immature adults when the author was both. In 2005, it was reborn online as a free webcomic with some colorized pages. Voted the greatest unpublished comic of all-time by the handful of people who actually read the thing. Expanded menu found here.
"Classic Crusher Comics" starts in the late 1980s and early 1990s featuring a noble, justice-minded lad known as "The Chrusher" in his teenage years in high school and beyond with his heroic friends known as "The Conquerors" battling against corrupt public school employees and a group of evil nerds, 'Roid-Ragin' bullies, and misfits known as "The Welforce." Filled in these initial adventures were Chrusher himself, Mike Butski, Ronald "The Cool Fool" Foule, Ian "The Brain" Babbler, Scott "The Cow" Gangonia, RaYzor "The Hitman" Cadildo, Donald "The Obliterator" Foule, Justin "The Grim Raker" Plankton, Keith "The Slasher" Clarkson, Steven "The Barbarian Bond" Howeird, Jo-Jo Bunns Kibbles, and a masked criminal dressed in chromed samurai armor known as King Babah. The story continued through all of the 1990s with plenty of humorous interludes with characters such as the angry Welphys, and a gang of super-powered disabled ands handicapped people led by "Bastard Buck" and Mr. Corrodedwithshitfaceman known as "The Lunaticials." Over 1,200 free comic book and graphic novel pages are available and non-contradictory 'retcon' material added as Easter eggs to find within. It was Adult Swim nearly two decades before it was on the air, except I was a kid in the late '80s through mid '90s when I did them.
