Seeking information about 90's era comic
June 16, 2012 8:23 AM   Subscribe

Does anyone know anything about the comic strip known as IE Skin's Guide to All That There is To Know? This ran in the East Bay Express in the nineties.

It was a weekly one panel comic that had encyclopedia-style descriptions of things that don't actually exist, like tiny giraffes or alternate-universe presidential histories.

This is hard to Google because you get Internet Explorer Skins. I did find one link, but it's not very informative.

I looked forward to it every week, and then it was gone. I guess it was probably never collected into a book, but maybe the artist has done other work under a different name?

Does anyone know anything about this? Thank you very much.

I found a reference to it in, of all places, a scholarly work on Georgia O'Keeffe among others, and it's in Google Books, and it has an image (!).

According to the credits, the creator was Peterskin Wolf, who is now -- assuming there isn't a plethora of people with that name in the visual arts -- a working (and occasionally showing) artist in Minnesota. Facebookable.
