Detail of Mike Russell’s CulturePulp comic featuring the Sprockettes.
View more on his blog.

Each Friday in their A&E section, the Oregonian features the work of artist and journalist Mike Russell. Last week, the subject of his CulturePulp comic was none other than the lovely and talented mini-bike dance troupe, the Sprockettes.

Not only does Russell share his personality-filled drawings of the Sprockettes in action, he also offers fun dialogue of the ladies during a recent rehearsal (an audio interview is coming soon). His words and drawings do an amazing job of capturing what the Sprockettes are all about.

I highly recommend checking this out for yourself. You can see snippets of the comic (or download the whole thing via PDF) on Russell’s CulturePulp blog.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive. That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. If you see an inconsiderate or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan and Michael
