Twisted Image is a cartoon strip by Ace Backwords. In a style inspired by R. Crumb, it lampoons countercultural stereotypes and documents Backwords' experiences as a homeless resident of San Francisco. The strip has appeared in numerous zines and was featured in The Factsheet Five Zine Reader. A collection of Twisted Image comics was published by Loompanics in 1991, but is now out of print.
