An Excerpt From Our Interview With Everett Peck From Issue 3

In 1994 the USA network greenlit a little cartoon called Duckman. They had no idea at the time that they’d just given birth to the funniest, raunchiest and most heartwarming cartoon we’d ever see on TV. Creative genius, Everett Peck, was the man behind the duck. We interviewed him to hear the story of Duckman and attempted to get an up close and personal glimpse into his sticky, squishy duck brain.

Travel Tips For The Thrifty Adventurer

Nothing is more satisfying than hitting the open road and feeling the wind in your hair. However, if you want to travel like a professional you’ve got to know the tricks of the trade. It’s not enough to roll your shirts or wear all your coats at once – you’ve got to move across the country like you were born on the road.

1. Keep your passport encased in a block of ice (bandits famously hate handling anything cold so they’ll steer clear of any personal items that even resemble an iceberg).

2. If you’re traveling by air, remember, pilots have to eat everything on a plane that their passengers leave on the ground, so clean up after yourself.

3. Replace your blood with trail-mix. I have pecans and off-brand M&Ms bouncing around my veins at the moment.

4. Use the barter system when necessary: trade an old hockey stick for a basket of eggs, trade the basket of eggs for a can of gas, trade the can of gas for a ride to Albuquerque, etc.

5. Grow a hump and learn to keep extra water inside.

The ones that put in the work, and it that town they are a household name.

MARVL US was a household name in the Bay Area. More like a legend. 10 years after he stopped writing we would still catch his tags hidden around skate spots and rusty old poles. US had it's own coveted place in the graffiti history of the bay (and still does) and MARVL seemed to be one of the most prolific and mysterious names in the crew. 

Sitting down to talk to MARVL was like stepping back into the early 90's. Everyone skated and everyone tagged. San Francisco was in the middle of a Renaissance that would last through the decade.
