"It could have happened"

Mark Urycki
A new graphic novel has hit the bookstands and it revolves around a time and place in Northeast Ohio when the economy was changing and good manufacturing jobs were leaving. "Punk Rock and Trailer Parks" is a book from the edgy, underground cartoonist known as Derf. And it takes place 30 years ago. Derf calls it a "rust belt epic."
