Backwords published Twisted Image, a punk rocktabloid, from 1982 to 1984 featuring interviews with Johnny Rotten, Jello Biafra, Henry Rollins, Charles Bukowski, R. Crumb, and Charles Schulz. The name was also used for a comic strip he created and distributed to independent publications. A collection of his comics, also entitled Twisted Image, was published by Loompanics in 1991. In 1993, he drew original comic strips for John Hoffman's book The Art and Science of Dumpster Diving, also published by Loompanics. In 2001, Loompanics published a non-fiction book by Backwords, a sort of how-to guide for street bums titled Surviving on the Streets: How To Go Down Without Going Out.
