Sure seems like a lot of Wackiness sprung forth from that class.  :P   Nice article, by the way. Congrats on some well deserved publicity.

The writer is a huge Vermin Supreme fan so he called Topps to ask who designed it. I told him I didn't do the final art and sent him the rough below, but he didn't include it.

I prefer your rough to the final art - that box top is great!

Of course, I remember him with a different name, but Vermin Supreme is actually his legal name now.
