A while back here in Lunchmeat Land, the totally awesome illustrator Tavi Veraldi (aka Poor Milk) and I debuted the first installment in a series of VHS-driven comic collaborations that were created to explore the many musings brought on by a fervent affection for our favorite format. We decided to title it MAGNETIC MEMORIES (see what we did there?), our first strip relaying a tribute to that absolutely amazing and unforgettable Frankenhooker talking VHS box, highlighting the pure joy that it provided with a simple touch of a button. If you missed it, you can click here to check that...
