Don't Look Away in Anger - Pasanen, Ernest F. "Ernie"

The artist and Bissette were classmates at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. The pair had a running joke from Sept. '76 through graduation involving graffiti in the backgrounds of their comics assignments: "Ernie Eats Shit," "Bissette Eats Shit," etc. This parody of a Saturday Night Live bit (Season 3 Episode 3, parody of Tom Schiller short film "Don't Look Back in Anger") was the artist getting the last word... until Bissette and John Totleben, another classmate, continued the joke into their professional comics careers. Inscribed by the artist, "Happy Hatch Day" to Bissette, presumably as a graduation gift.
