RF CHAPTER NINE of TEN -- A 9-PART 80 Pg. Giant
RAT FINK, inspired by the work of Stanley "Mouse" Miller, refined by Don "Monte" Monteverde, and popularized by Ed "Big Daddy Rith -- had hit the big time! The obnoxious little rodent struck a chord with America's youth, and practically overnight RF became a sensation.
"The kids idolize me because I look like someone their parents wouldn't like," Ed once said. "I gotta admit, the first monsters I designed had a lot of shock value for kids who wanted to freak out their parents."
True, most parent of the time did not like Rat Fink. But their kids sure did! Boys, and, surprisingly, girls too. RF soon became a cultural phenomena that embodied the outlaw biker spirit, and he defined the Swingin' Sixties! This issue of DIAL B, we're going to show you what Finkie hath rought.
It all started with the Monster T-shirts. Pictured below is Ed doing a shirt at a show while surrounded by adoring fans.
