Brian Walker spent two years at Big Bear High School searching for a home-field advantage. This involved the little matter of finding the home field, which was usually covered by a blanket of snow. At Big Bear, the boys of summer had to wait until the spring meltdown before they could throw out the first pitch. "We didn't really have a field most of the time," Walker said, "because there was snow all over it. We practiced in the gym. I remember my freshman year . . . we played two home games.

Above all, the underground comix of the late 1960s and early 1970s were dirty. Unlike the newspaper strips of the era, which featured clean lines and obvious gags, underground comix were jam-packed with scuzzy, hallucinatory images, offering surreal plot lines that often veered toward incoherence.

Rocket Guy is way behind schedule. If things had worked out as planned, he'd already be the first person to single-handedly launch himself into the stratosphere. He'd be making the talk-show rounds, telling audiences about how this slightly wacky toy inventor took a childhood dream and made it a reality. He'd be bragging about how he boosted himself 30 miles straight up in a rocket he made in his home workshop. Or, perhaps he might be dead. Rocketry, after all, is fraught with peril.
