ns and editors. Alien brings together some of the best of Joe’s artwork, along with extensive interviews with the man and the people who know him. Joe holds forth on the things that fascinate him: the female body, motorcycles, rabbits, nature, art, and music.

And Joe’s friends and colleagues talk about knowing this funny, talented, and deeply principled guy who’s never afraid to speak his mind.
