Chuck Forsman is offering another one of his bundles. Man, that dude publishes a lot of comics. If you have twenty bucks to spare you should spend it here.
From the CollectionColor Right by Charise Mericle Harper (1995). Published by Primal Groove. Charise is now a children’s book author and I edited her comics 20 years later! I had no idea this mini existed. Her style is very different now. #minicomicHot Town by Robyn Jordan (2008). Short observations from a New York summer. I wanted to include the nude beach page (it’s really funny) but thought better of it. #minicomicGood Old Comics by Timothy Sinaguglia (year unknown, around 2015?). Pretty impressive drawings! Tim, if you’re still trying to connect with cartoonists in NYC, hit me up! #minicomicBrown Paper Bag Comics 1 by Daniel Barclay (1999). There are a variety of short stories here, but this one stands out. It’s almost a simple sort of animation, with images leaving hazy shadows behind. I’ve never seen that in comics. #minicomicLe dernier kilometre by Julie Delporte (2011). I can’t read French, but these drawings are killer! Reminds me of Vanessa Davis. #minicomicNamby Pamby 2 by Rina Ayuyang (2003). Her style was different back then, and there’s some fiction in here too. #minicomicVarious minis by Sophia Foster-Dimino. Around 2014, 2015? Smart, funny, unusual. #minicomicSixth Mass Extinction by Ines Estrada (2016). Published by Perfectly Acceptable Press. A sketchbook full of animals in pain and other symbolic imagery. #zineOaf by Mat Brinkman (year unknown, early aughts?). Very similar to Teratoid Heights. #minicomic #fortthunderStitching Together by Annie Mok (2008). I appreciate all the extra material Annie provided to give this story context. She has some reservations about it but I think it holds up. #minicomicCheck Your Stars by Jerry Riddle (1995). This is a rare one from Anchorage, Alaska! I had my own zine at the time. This guy discovered it and sent his zine to my PO box, as you do. I'm not sure I ever wrote back. I was a selfish teenager who didn't know how things worked. I guess this is the first minicomic I ever read--long before I knew what a minicomic was. (Or, I'm embarrassed to admit, how to correctly pronounce "zine"!) #minicomicBlue Hole 1 (1995) and 2 (1997) by Christine Shields. Issue 2 won a Xeric grant and has a cameo by Tony Millionaire. Really impressive art. She has a Jennifer Daydreamer / Dame Darcy vibe. Anyone know what Christine is doing now? #minicomicsOptic Nerve 3 (1992) and 6 (1993). I picked these up in a recent eBay auction. Thanks, Sam Henderson! #minicomicsLike Everyone Else by Alexey Zhulikov (2018). From the Russian publisher Space Cow. A longish (45 pages) story about friendship and growing up. I went home from CAB with a lot of Space Cow comics. A nice discovery for me! #minicomics #comicartsbrooklyn2018That Box We Sit On by Richie Pope (2018). Richie taps the child's voice well here. The images morph between reality and fantasy at ease. #minicomic #comicartsbrooklyn2018Bone Saw by Andrew Pena (2017). A nicely crafted mini. I like the noodle-arm cartoon style. Fun, a little goofy. #minicomic #comicartsbrooklyn2018Nate the Nonconformist Has a Rival by Stephanie Mannheim (2018). This is really funny and has a satisfying and unexpected ending. I love the wacky expressions and squash and stretch cartoon action. #minicomic #comicartsbrooklyn2018Please Be Nice to Me 1 by Vicky Leta (2018). The first in a series of comics about terrible tinder dates. #minicomic #comicartsbrooklyn2018My CAB 2018 haul. Another small one, since I couldn't get away from the table much. What a great show! But I'm happy con season is over. Three shows in four weeks is too much!Once again, I'm selling my dupes! Get 'em cheap at CAB. Table A8. See you tomorrow!
