The Museum Of UnCut Funk is a big fan of comic book artist Jim Rugg. I introduced myself to Jim several years ago when he published his Afrodisiac graphic novel. When I found out about his latest endeavor, The Walking Dead Ghost Variant, I purchased a copy for the Museum collection and contacted Jim to ask him if I could include it in our Aesthetic Grooves blog. The article below was reprinted with the consent of Jim Rugg.
