Lawrence "Rawdog" Hubbard is a Los Angeles native. He is an artist and the publisher of Real Deal Comix, which garnered a cult following during its run. H.P. McElwee (a.k.a. "R.D. Bone") passed away in 1998.
Real Deal IS the real deal. There is no realer, better comic out there. This is high, high, high comics art. Each issue is a constantly escalating explosion of violence, violent sex, and hostile violence, but made beautiful through the drawings of the self-taught Lawrence "Raw Dog" Hubbard.
