Gallery 1988 Brings Back The Garbage Pail Kids!!!


When I was a shorty I was absolutely enthralled by the sheer disgusting nature of 'Garbage Pail Kids' trading cards. These hideous creations often featured some creative name for a mutilated child that was accompanied by a corresponding illustration.  (Continued after the jump)



The whole card series became a huge cultural phenomenon that spawned a movie and numerous sets of cards. So the innovative sons of bitches over at Gallery 1988 decided to revisit this awesome card series, but allow some of the newer artists in the game to create their very own versions of the Garbage Pail Kids. These are the ones that I liked the best. Click here to see much more from the show on the Gallery 1988 website. The exhibit runs through October 1st for all my Cali fam (I am quite jealous!).Which ones are your faves? Tell us in the comment section below!
