Outside The Box : A timeless collection of quotes compiled by Verne Andru in the order they found him - While researching the Captain Cannabis back-story Verne was faced with a fundamental question: if Captain Cannabis gets his cosmic pot from aliens, where do the aliens come from?

With that question at the forefront, he set out to read anything he could get my hands on related to "alien" encounters with fellow Earth creatures. Needless to say, that lead to some interesting discoveries, all chronicled in "Outside the Box" which I'm sure you'll agree it is a timeless collection if there ever was one.

The Art of Verne : Underground Collection - Captain Cannabis creator Verne Andru found a ready vehicle for his awesome talents in the underground press emerging in the wake of Robert Crumb’s Zap Comics sensation in the sixties and seventies. The Art of Verne Underground Collection is the first time his early work, now long out of print, has been assembled under a single cover.
