“Poor poor Chris. Getting beat up by a girl…”

Ronnie Foule mocks Chrusher after his woman sits on Chrush. And she is not the type of woman he wants sitting on him. He’s not into Erotic Asphyxiation….

The legend begins. It is the year 1988, and a fourteen-year-old high school freshman starts doodling a sketchbook with a storyline to amuse himself and his classmates. Little did anyone know that it was the beginning of a comic that would go on for decades. The art may be crude, as is the humor, but… everything has a beginning. It features a young lad named Chrusher, and his friends Ron Foule and Mike Butski, who had an almost Pro-Wrestling type rivalry going on, having battles of one-upmanship in the halls of the Oswegonian high school. And it seemed as if every few pages, new characters come out of the background and add more hilarity, violence, and entertainment. Enjoy.

In addition to the crude pencil-on-lined-paper art first created in 1988, this page is essentially unchanged from the original pencil-on-paper from 9/1988. In 2012, while prepping the page on Photoshop, it got a quickie coloring upgrade in 2012 for the new Chrusher.com website.
