85 GN (2008 Pocket Books) comic books
1st printing. Written by Danny Simmons. Art by Floyd Hughes. '85 illustrates the undercurrent of the New York City drug scene during its height in the mid 1980s. Crow, the son of a deceased police officer, is a drug addict who sells stolen art from his best friend Danny - a reformed addict - in an attempt to pay his rent and support his daily habit. While in and out of cocaine highs and lows, Crow encounters other members who live in the land of "Do-As-You-Please," a hazy hedonistic world of sex and drugs. After a reminder of how his father would be disappointed in his actions, Crow has a moment of sobriety, in which he is able to see his life in the gutter is not as delightful as he once thought it was. Softcover, B&W. Mature Readers Cover price $14.95.
