I received my first issue from the Minicomic of the Month Club, direct from Australia’s Smaller Comics. Man, there’s a lot of good stuff coming out of Australia! This one is by Carla McRae. It’s a silent comic about, I think, a tender romance between a girl and a sasquatch. Very lovely.
From the CollectionBoredom Pays 1-7 (2009-2013) by Jason Bradshaw. Look at how his drawing style changed between issue 1 and 7! But Jason always had chops. #minicomicsMy James Hindle minis, ranging from the aughts to the 2010s. A superb storyteller and artist. I have a duplicate of Immovable Objects available for sale or trade. #minicomicConstructing: Comics vs. Pinball (2022) by Jon Chad. Jon breaks down and compares comics and pinball as art forms. This is a promotional mini for his fun and fact-filled illustrated history of pinball. #minicomicTonight @daryl.seitchik and I will offer a free workshop on mini memoirs! Check out @comicsworkshop for more info.Tinder Box (2004) by Damien Jay. The first part of a silly adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen story. This is a duplicate in my collection. It’s very beat up but a real gem. Available for $3 or trade. EDIT: this is claimed. #minicomicJourney Into Misery 1 (2012) by Paul Hoppe. Packed with gags. A lot for fans of the super hero genre to enjoy. #minicomicCadaver Diaries by Kriota Willberg. Honest and chilling but also compassionate and grateful notes from the cadaver lab, interwoven with personal stories. #minicomicFeel by Miranda Bruce. Another MoCCA 22 discovery. Sort of a comic poetry sketchbook with a nice textured line. #zineFad Pets by Madi Baker. An informative comic about the dangers of treating animals like they’re the latest iPhone. #minicomicAlong For the Ride (2020) by Dean. I discovered this artist at MoCCA. I like their simple, classic style. #minicomicKoreangry 8 (2020) by Eunsoo Jeong. Funny and you’ll learn something too. Image all the work that goes into a single panel!My MoCCA 22 haul. More to come!Issue one of the Mini Memoir Project: I Don’t Belong Here by Jon Allen. It will be at MoCCA Fest this weekend, and there’s still time to back the Kickstarter!I got my copy of Clutter by Ariel Bordeaux (and a page of Deep Girl original art!). For me, Clutter is one of the most anticipated books of the year. I have a duplicate of Deep Girl 5, so I’ll send a free copy to the first person who sends me a receipt showing they backed or ordered Clutter. (You’ll get my beat-up copy, I’m keeping this mint one.) EDIT: this is claimed.Attention, minicomic fans! Check out my new publishing project on Kickstarter! Link in the bio and also here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/robynchapman/the-mini-memoir-projectI got my Kickstarter reward from Seattle art co-op Push Pull! I especially like the art zine Nightmare of Ages and Wheels of Terror, an illustrated essay by Seth Goodkind about haunted car movies. #zinesTen Foot Rule by Shawn Granton. These issues are from 2001-2008. A long-running diary comic about Shawn’s life in Portland, OR, largely about cycling. A nice time capsule of that era.Stay Away From Other People (2008) by Lisa Hanawalt. Hilarious bits and pieces and intricate drawings that are fun to stare at. This was a donation from @phasesevencomics, thank you! #minicomicsIf you like my feed, you should follow Rachel Miller’s @girlsinthegutter. Cool, rare, and archival images from lady cartoonists. Share the knowledge!Días de Consuelo (2021) by Dave Ortega, published by Radiator Comics. Rich with history and information. I especially like these small moments where you can see how folks in a small Mexican town lived a hundred years ago (drawing water from a well, baking tortillas on a wood stove, etc.)
