Added DiffLines:

* FloweryInsults: The Dirty Mouth Bass that George Liquor encounters in issue #2 has a very colorful vocabularly to go hand in hand with his ornery personality, to say the least. He can hardly go a panel without hurling some kind of creative insult at George as the latter tries to catch him. George [[TranquilFury tolerates it at first]], but after being prodded enough times by the fish, he [[RageBreakingPoint finally snaps and goes all out trying to catch him.]]
* GainaxEnding: Issue #2 has a story involving George Liquor getting into a spate with a Dirty Mouth Bass that he's trying to catch, which bizarrely ends with the former adopting the bass as his ''son''.


Added DiffLines:

* HamToHamCombat: The fishing story in issue #2 has the ever prideful and hot-blooded George Liquor put up against a particularly ornery and foul-mouthed bass, with the conflict eventually escalating into who can out-ham who once George gets prodded enough by the fish.

Added DiffLines:

Despite having a great stable of cartoonists working on it, the comic failed to find an audience and sold poorly due to a catch 22 situation; at the time, comic book stores usually only attracted audiences of superhero comics, who simply weren't interested in the gag oriented stories, and they weren't able to get regular book stores to sell the comics instead, dooming the series to a meager four issue run.


''Spumco Comic Book'' is a short lived comic book series created by Creator/JohnKricfalusi, published by Creator/DarkHorseComics. It starts his characters George Liquor (American), Jimmy The Idiot Boy and Sody Pop.

The comic series was later republished in hardcover by Yoe Books, complete with stories and artwork that was previously unpublished.
