Act II of Mimi and the Wolves by Alabaster. Trippy shit. It stars a polyamorous wolf coven. It’s hand-printed in Ridgewood, Queens. Do I really have to convince you to buy it?
From the CollectionSpecial order from Gutter Pop Comics! Thanks, Stephen!Hi Neighbor! Author unknown. (I can’t read the signature, but the first name begins with a K and ends with a Y.) #minicomicTwo issues of Jumbly Junkery by L. Nichols (2008). A collection of short autobio stories. Read his memoir, Flocks! #minicomicThese are all my Anuj Shrestha minis/zines (2008-2015). They feel strangely appropriate these pays. I have a duplicate of Hydra if anyone wants to trade. #minicomicBarefootz Funnies 3 by Howard Cruse (1979). I’m working with a group of Howard’s friends to put on a memorial event in NYC on March 28. Google “Howard Cruse Memorial” and you’ll find the info.Bitter Pie 1 by Tena (1998). One of the first minicomics I owned. It came with a Not Your Bitch bumper sticker, which I put on the 1985 Chevy Celebrity I bought in college (for $700, at gas station). Somehow that car survived a road trip from Savannah, Georgia to Anchorage, Alaska. A trip I made alone, with only a hammer for for protection, like Luba in Love and Rockets—god, what was I thinking? I couldn’t even afford the gas for that trip today. #minicomicThese were in the free pile at work. Who reads indie comics at Macmillan? I must find them! No one at First Second is fessing up.Forever and Everything! 3 by Kyle Bravo (2018). Short autobio pieces about a young family in New Orleans. #minicomicAll my Max Coltfelter minis, from 2003 to 2019. Looking at his art, it makes sense that he and Chris Wright were buddies in college. I think they were both poked by the same radioactive nib and got super powers! #minicomicPlay borough bingo! Scavenger Hunt for Central Park by Kjersti Faret and 20 Objects in Ridgewood by Yao Xiao. #minicomicGinseng Roots 1 and 2 by Craig Thompson (2019). Published by Uncivilized Books. Enjoying this series a lot. I forgot how good Craig Thompson is! Glad he’s back.When the Snow Melts Part One by Nick Offerman (2015). I like the quiet parts of the story. I think his storytelling is stronger without narration. Hope I can find part two. #minicomicHot Tea, Cold Water 3 edited by Leann Leake (2011). The title of each contribution in this zine corresponds with a letter in the alphabet (26 in all).Operation Pizza by Box Brown (2013). A fun little 3-color Risograph mini printed at SAW. #minicomicReptile House 1 (2019). They dub themself the “Philly lowbrow comix quarterly.” It definitely has an underground vibe. I want to use the calendar but then my copy won’t be mint! Picked up at Desert Island. #minicomicMe + My Guts by Gino Dal Cin (2019). I related to this comic about IBS a lot. Picked it up at Desert Island. #minicomicNeil Jam 8 by Neil Fitzpatrick (2001). I never took a deep dive into Neil Jam but I like the visual style here. #minicomic134 Mahana’im St. by Keren Katz (year unknown, around 2017?). A short comic about a memory from childhood, shared on a first date. #minicomicAmarinthe by Rosemary Valero-O’Connell (year unknown, around 2017?). The title means eternal. This is a short pretty love poem. #minicomicGoiter by J.R.D. Pettinger (year unknown, around 2016?). Bitter humor in the vein of Brunetti or Clowes. This page is my favorite. #minicomic
