In the spirit of Lost Boys and Warriors, NOTC is a high-octane, genre-bending mix of horror, hard action and street culture. The Origins book was born in coffee shops and bars in Northern and Southern California. Artists and contributors came not only from Cali but from as far away as Tokyo, Montreal, and Argentina. In the spirit of a DIY, punk rock, cassette tape, the book is rough and raw by design and should be played at maximum volume. Reprints issue 1 with new material.
