Finally! Our hero, Jimmy Watts the tenor sax genius, is clean & sober! No more "bug-juice" for Jimmy. Too bad no one told Slim Watkins, Jimmy's piano-playing bandmate. Can Jimmy stay clean when he drops in on Slim for a jam session? Or will it be more bugs on drugs? Set in a 'bug noir' Manhattan of the nineteen-fifties, Bughouse weaves the story of an ensemble of characters who are essentially human beings with bug-like features, as they dance on the edge of the abyss. Steve Lafler brings alive a lost era of jazz and drugs that evokes a range of emotions and experience rarely seen in comic books.
