This isn’t about micro-presses, per se. But you’d be hard pressed to find an institution that supports self published and small published comics more than The Center for Cartoon Studies. They are looking for a new operations manager to handle the day-to-day operations of the school. The new candidate will have big shoes to fill. Valerie Fleisher, who has held the position for several years, has been a real asset to the school. Valerie and her family are moving out of Vermont. I wish them luck!
From the CollectionSkin Eater Comics (1998). Edited by Chris Shadoian. A comic anthology about...you guessed it! Chris did this cover and an autobio comic about a skin-eating coworker. Gross AF. #minicomicMy haul from Home-Baked Zines and Cakes, happening now in Bushwick. Come out and support Educated Little Monsters. #minicomic #zineInktoby by A.T. Pratt (2016). I don't even get how something this funny was improvised day by day, but sometimes that's how it works. It's full of brilliant rhymes and gags. I was fortunate enough to see A.T. do a live reading of this, which is a whole other experience. #minicomic #moccafest2018Ohio is for Sale by Jon Allen (2017). Jon is a real unsung talent. More folks should be reading his minicomics. Though this issue is more like a mini graphic novel. #moccafest2018The Experts by Sophie Franz (2016). Published by Retrofit / Big Planet. A mysterious, haunting story. Has a Lost vibe to it. Nice art; looks like it's painted. #minicomic #moccafest2018Book of Daze by E.A. Bethea (2017). Published by Domino Books. These short comics are exquisite little poems. One of my favorites from MoCCA. It's nice to discover work that surprises you. This comic looks kind out of place in 2018. #minicomic #moccafest2018Do Geese See God 1 by Nicholas Offerman (2018). The first of four chapters about a man at a low point in his life. A funeral brings him back to his hometown.Fever by Christina Dacanay (2018). A short comic about her experience dating as an Asian woman. Her words in the back sum it up best. "Disclaimer: I don't think any of the men depicted had a fetish, it's just something we gotta think about think about every time." #minicomic #moccafest2018My MoCCA Fest 2018 haul.The gang's all here!

Pepe is really just a peaceful stoner who likes to hang with his friends. #savepepe #minicomicBack from the printer! Covers for the Tiny Report 5. Art by Zack Soto. Preorder on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/362250370/paper-rocket-minicomics-2018-spring-lineGhost Lady by Thu Tran (2016). Cool and creepy one-sheet comic.
