Paty is a good witch with these steely, piercing blue eyes, who hunts buck and fights fires and doesn’t take guff from anyone.
She has been widely recognized for her work on Claws of the Cat and Foom, and for her days in the Marvel bullpen.
Paty has been an excellent friend and a frequent contributor to Aardwolf's books since day one, often mailing her artwork in wildly decorated envelopes that are as much a piece of art as the object they’re holding.
You can see Paty’s work in the following Aardwolf publications:

An Afterword by Dave Cockrum and a stunning cover painting by Joe Michael Linsner (who also wrote the Foreword) rounds out this incredible collection.
"Inventive...Compelling...Original...Words you've heard before regarding new talent on the scene. In Meth's case, they're true."
- Gray Morrow
"Showing us the wild variety of life, and how a wilder variety of characters cope with it, is what Meth does. And he does it well."
- John Romita

Clifford Meth's trade paperback, the original Crib Death and Other Bedtime Stories is almost completely sold out, but many of the stories have been reprinted in God's 15 Minutes. Aardwolf is also planning a digital version of the original book, which should be available soon.
Because of the popularity of Clifford Meth's 1995 collection of short fiction, Aardwolf reissued the collection in with a new story ("Queers") in 1997.
This edition, entitled Crib Death: The Baby-sitter's Companion and also features a new Foreword by Tony Isabella and a new illustration by Bill Messner-Loebs.
This is what THE COMIC BUYER'S GUIDE has to say about CRIB DEATH...
"This collection of short tales by Clifford Lawrence Meth has the uncommon good fortune to be graced not only with an exquisite cover by Joseph Michael Linsner and interior illustrations by Rob Orzechowski, Paul Abrams, Marie Severin, Paty, Mike Witherby, and Dave Cockrum, but also with the fine-tuned comic-book sensibility of its author...Meth tells [these stories] with a vividness akin to the house of Gaines.
"Of course, such is the nature of the stories featured herein that writing about them in any detail would lessen your enjoyment thereof. I'll content myself with the lone observation that 'The Asshole Syndrome' is one of the funniest horror stories I've read...and the heartfelt advice that you get this puppy as soon as possible."
Note: Two stories in this collection are listed in The Year's Best Fantasy & Horror Anthology (St. Martin's Press, 1996).
Crib Death & Other Bedtime Stories: 70 pages
Crib Death: The Baby-sitter's Companion: 94 pages
Clifford Meth returns with stories as vivid and stunning as Jim Steranko's brilliant cover art. Includes the hit singles "The Man Who Hated Lubavitchers" and "Back on the Whores".
Peter David introduces the work, saying Meth's characters are "searching for love," but "only as an abstract to which they can aspire...not truly relate." Then, there's spot illustrations from Al Milgrom, Paty Cockrum, Bill Messner Loebs, Steve Lieber, Michael Netzer, Earl Geier, Anthony Carpenter, and Jordan Raskin just to add some more bitter spice to the stories.
