Apologies if this isn't the right site to ask this on.

Can someone tell me the name of a comic, or series of comics, the first one being about a group of people from a circus, including clowns and a two-headed woman?

From what I recall they drive around whilst drinking, and possibly one of their number dies during it.

The story stuck with me even though I can't remember a lot of the details.

    I don't really see how this fits in with sci-fi or fantasy. Was she really two-headed or was it just some kind of trick?

    @Richard: Really two-headed, IIRC.

  • Austin Powers: There are only two things in this world that scare me and one is nuclear war. Basil: What’s the other? Austin Powers: Huh? Basil: What’s the other thing that scares you? Austin Powers: Carnies. Circus folk. Nomads, you know. Smell like cabbage. Small hands.

This may be Dave Louapre and Dan Sweetman's Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children, published in 1989. It's a magic realism/urban fantasy B/W graphic novel series with a good deal of Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane.

I'm trying to dig up my copy.

  • That's it! I remember the name of the comic and the content being quite melancholic
