This is a thing I’d like to own. It’s by Char Esme and Lauren Poor, of the Spider’s Pepaw anthology. I need to learn more about those guys.
From the CollectionAll 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. #minicomicRem 1 by M. R. Trower (2014). The first part of a sci-fi story. (Or is it fantasy?) Neat world and premise. #minicomicEat to Survive 7 by Jeff Mahannah (2017). Sick in both meanings of the word: cool and kinda gross sometimes. #minicomicPursuit by Samuel Hayes (date unknown, around 2018?). A trippy miasma of doodles. There seems to be some narrative here but it’s hard for me to follow. Impressive drawing, no dead space. #minicomicThe Spider Grandmother by Steve Teare (2015). A lovely Risograph scene report of a Burning-Man-esque event I hadn’t heard of. I assumed it was nonfiction, but maybe not? #minicomicGirl Hero 3 by Megan Kelso (1994). Now I’m just missing issue 4. Help a girl out!PMS Emotions by Hyesu Lee (2019?). Funny short comics about being an adult in New York. #minicomicDiary of a Monster by Karen Sneider (2019). Effing hilarious. #minicomicSorry there have been so few posts lately. I’m moving my studio and library so my collection is inaccessible at the moment. I should be posting again next week!
