    211. Blue Loco: Mutant Martian Manga! (1997).

    Pioneer computer cartoonist Mark Landman created the innovative Buzz anthology series for Kitchen Sink Press in 1990 (see buttons #142 to 149). In 1997 he created Blue Loco as an even more surreal anthology highlighting his own work and others (such as Charles Burns), this time in full color and on slick heavy paper. Though a noble experiment, it was an expensive comic book with a hard-to-read logo, and was a victim of bad timing (both the comics industry and Kitchen Sink Press were on hard times). Blue Loco was a commercial failure. But it had a very cool promotional button. Compare Landman's multi-eyed Popeye spud image here to his earlier mutant Popeye (button #142) for Buzz.

    1.25" diameter. $3.50

    One note, for serious button collectors, you may want to read the KSP BUTTON TEXT which explains the numbering systems for identifying the various buttons produced over the last 30 years, or see the COMPLETE KSP BUTTON LIST. The list is VERY long, so be patient while it loads.
