David Boswell's REID FLEMING: THE WORLD'S TOUGHEST MILKMAN is one of the more obscure indy comics.
Or so I thought!
The comic book appeared in 1980. David self-published it. REID FLEMING about an enraged milkman who does his job with a vengeance. He is pure id, screaming and yelling and delivering milk. It's very funny and mean.
Within a decade, people like THE SIMPSONS creator Matt Groening, SCTV's Dave Thomas and movie director Jonathan Demme were fans. Some of them wanted to make a movie version of REID FLEMING. It came very close to happening. Here is the story, and the reason why that may never, ever happen.
