    Beg the Question is a graphic novel by Bob Fingerman. It chronicles the trials and tribulations of Rob, a squeamish freelance cartoonist/pornographer, and Sylvia, a beauty salon manager with loftier aspirations, with a supporting cast featuring Jack, an unhappily celibate literary stalker; Max, a lovesick wannabe Lothario; Matt, the Godzilla-collecting, stripper-dating rich kid in denial; Maddie, Sylvia's lesbian old flame; Elvis, the mordant and very corpulent smut editor; and others. Beg the Question was nominated for an Ignatz Award and two Eisner Awards.
