Garbage Pail Kids were awesome in 1985-88 but brining it back in 2015 doesn’t work because it’s lost all it’s authenticity and relevance. Remember GBK was a parody against Cabbage Patch Kids. And it’s been decades since we’ve seen folks literally beat each other down to get one of those dolls. The creators of this comic are not the disgruntled artists of old lashing back at mainstream popular culture but merely modern day fan boys paying homage to their Rosebud of years past funded by executives trying to cash in on the same sentiment. Similar to how Beavis and Butthead was awesome in 1993 but when they brought it back in 2011 it didn’t work.
