Bacon-Wrapped Trout:
2 (10-ounce) whole trout, cleaned and gutted
1/2 cup cornmeal
Salt and ground pepper, to taste
8 sprigs fresh thyme
1 lemon, sliced
6 slices bacon
Fresh parsley, for garnish

1. Preheat broiler and set oven rack 4 to 6 inches from heat. With a paper towel, pat trout dry inside and out. Dredge outside of each fish in cornmeal, then season cavity with salt and pepper. Place 4 sprigs of thyme and 2 lemon slices inside each fish.

2. Wrap 3 bacon slices around the middle of each fish, so that the edges overlap slightly. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil, and place fish on pan. Broil until bacon is crisp, about 5 minutes. With a spatula, carefully flip fish over and cook another 5 minutes, until flesh is firm.

THETH
 , Retrofit’s first BOOK WITH A SPINE is an 80 page epic story of the naieveté of youth, the struggle to survive the circumstances we are placed in and the ways we are influenced by those around us for better or worse.  ”Theth”, or Seth (with a lisp) is made fun of by his peers, criticized by his family and hated by the owners of the local comic shop.  In Josh Bayer’s unique style we see Theth going to school on the day after John Lennon was shot.  All Theth wants to do is read comics but school bullies, home bullies, teachers and weirdoes keep getting in the way.  Where can Theth turn to escape from this horror?  

80 pages, black and white
