"It is somehow fitting that the pinnacle of Crankshaft's baseball career was pitching for the only team in the world named after a sort of misfit duck"

- Jamie Farr, from his foreword

Strike Four! The Crankshaft Baseball Book by Tom Batiuk and Chuck Ayers [Black Squirrel Books; $24.95] is the book I've wanted to see for years. It collects over two hundred pages of Crankshaft comic strips centered around the feisty bus driver's career as a minor-league pitcher. That part of Ed's life has always fascinated me and I can't wait to start reading this collection. This post isn't a review. It's a heads up that this book has been published and available. My review will come down the line.

ISBN 978-1-60635-192-5
