The creator of the long running independent newsweekly strip, The City, has created a pitch perfect tale of the classic days of punk rock. Set in his home town of Akron, Ohio, in 1980, PR & TP gives us the senior year and then some of high school loser cum small-town-punk-rock-legend, Otto "The Baron" Pizcok. While the central narrative is entirely fictional, its setting is not, and Derf wryly captures the mid-Ohio ambience and recreates the hot and heavy scene at the main Akron club -- The Bank -- that was, at least for the time chronicled here, the center of the punk scene. Plot, pacing, characterization, the supporting cast -- all are spot on. Punk Rock and Trailer Parks will make for a thoroughly enjoyable read for anyone who likes comics and punk rock and will be a real thrill for anyone who remembers these days.
