Blag Dahlia from punk rock band the Dwarves teams up with illustrator Marc Rude to bring us ‘Armed to the Teeth With Lipstick’. While not the longest book in the world, only 130 pages, it does not sell you short on fun or weirdness. Basically think of this as an old school detective story, set on Mars. Filled with enough drugs, sex and violence to make you think about signing up for rehab after you’re done reading. The only thing that may be more sick and twisted than the words that Blag has stained the pages with is the illustrations by Marc Rude, the pictures are great and disturbing at the same time. They kind of remind me of the Naked Lunch when I’m looking at them. If you’re a fan of detective stories, weirdness or just flat-out twisted stuff you should check this one out, I enjoyed the hell out of it.
