IPR investigation: is Vermin Supreme actually Tom Knapp’s real father?

SEPARATED 9 MONTHS BEFORE BIRTH?

Thomas L. Knapp reported in 2017 that the man he then believed to have been his father had passed away. Now, in 2019, Knapp has tantalizingly titled his review of the Vermin Supreme book “I, Pony” “VERMIN SUPREME IS MY FATHER (OR AT LEAST I CALL HIM DADA).”
