A veteran cartoonist is batting health issues and mounting medical expenses and he’ll be getting some help from his kids and Topps.
His Garbage Pail Kids, actually.
Just some of the career credits of Jay Lynch include writing for Bazooka Joe comics, work on Wacky Packages and the Garbage Pail Kids and a new set of 11 cards from Topps revealed on Wednesday aims to help him.
For the next 28 days, an 11-sticker set is available from Topps for $64.99 with memorable Lynch works re-created by 11 artists. These will be printed to order once the availability window closes.
