Expiration Date: A Graphic Novel

This is an illustrated journey into some very surreal and very bizarre psychological territory. This is the story of a family of three and their Christmas holiday experience involving a collection of plastic five-gallon buckets of flesh, a father whose behavior is dictated by some form of self-induced dream-logic, a "hollow" daughter, an emaciated mother-figure in an attic, dehydrated kittens, a post-hole digger, platelets, milk, and breakfast cereal. Written by Justin Curfman - frontman for the band, Feeding Fingers.
