John Holmstrom - Bosko

2013.03.30 Asbury Park Comic Con, Asbury Park, NJ

John Holmstrom is an underground comix writer and artist. Known for his Ramones album covers
Rocket to Russia and Road to Ruin, as well as Bosko "America's LEAST Favorite Cartoon". Founder of Punk magazine (1975-79) he has also worked for the Village Voice, Video Games magazine, K-Power, Heavy Metal, Spin magazine, Screw magazine and High Times.

Holmstrom started his career as an assistant for Will Eisner and Harvey Kurtzman.

Holmstrom also produced covers and posters for the Dandy Warhols, Murphy's Law, Animal Records record label lettering for Iggy Pop. He has designed posters and programs for the New Fillmore East Theater

Holmstrom asked for a first day cover with the postal service's most disgusting stamp. Since I didn't have anything disgusting with me I had to opt for the generic Patriotic Pen cover.
