This is my ode to John “Derf” Backderf – truly one of my favorite comic creators of all time. From Punk Rock and Trailer Parks to My Friend Dahmer to Trashed, Derf has proved time and time again that he is a true force to be reckoned with in the comic industry.

If you are looking for the ultimate biography of Derf this is not it. I am not going to pretend I’m a Derf expert so please don’t argue the minutia. In the end this is what it is: my personal look at one amazing storyteller and illustrator.

If you’ve read Derf then you probably already know how outstanding he is. If you have never heard of Derf, please sit back and enjoy the ride.

You can grab Derf’s work at Amazon, Comixology, and probably any retailer that sells books. You can visit his website at:

If you’re out there “Derf McDerf” – hope I did you justice and didn’t screw up the details too much.
