The modest $5,000 goal has already been met, but it’s not too late to chip in. For just $15 you can get your own copy of Root Hog or Die, the new John Porcellino documentary.
From the CollectionMothball 88 by Kevin Reilly (2018). The story centers on the intricate but baffling sport of Mothball. The concept is bizarre but the storytelling is solid and easy to follow. Refreshingly unique--I liked it a lot. It reminds me of Beanworld. #minicomic #spx2018True Pooch edited by Alessa Kreger (2018). A comic anthology about dogs and dog lovers. Nicely curated throughout. Each contribution was high quality, somewhat rare for anthologies. #minicomic #spx2018My SPX 2018 haul. Posts starting tomorrow! #minicomic #spx2018 #smallpressexpoMinicomic sale at SPX! Greys by Oliver Schrauwen (2012). Published by Desert Island. Accidentally bought this twice! #minicomicMinicomic sale at SPX! Unspoken by Megan Kelso (1996?). Early short comics not published in Queen of the Black Black. #minicomicMinicomic sale at SPX! I'll be selling some of my duplicates, like this gem. Krayons Ego edited by Karen Sneider and Jesse Reklaw (2006). See your favorite indie artist ruthlessly satirized. (See my cameo as Robyn Assless-Chaps-Man.) #minicomicMonica's Story by Jon Lewis, James Kochalka, and Tom Hart (1999). A comic retelling of the Starr Report. Published by Alternative Comics.Zombre by Ansis Purins (year unknown, around 2006?). It's a mostly silent story about a friendship-turn-battle between Zombre and Slappy. #minicomicCabaret by Mike Dawson (year unknown, around 2005?). This is a hand-bound mini graphic novel with a screen printed cover, limited to an edition of 75. I feel lucky to own a copy. #minicomicBore #14 by Jason Bradshaw (2017). This is the first part of Things Go Wrong, a serialized graphic novel I'm republishing. Check it out on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/362250370/paper-rocket-minicomics-2018-fall-lineAre you a fan of the Missy comics by Daryl Seitchik? I'm publishing a new one! Check out the Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/362250370/paper-rocket-minicomics-2018-fall-linePink Medicine edited by Cole Johnson (2004). I mistook this for a Cole Johnson comic but it's actually an anthology. Lots of good people in here: Dave Kiersh, Megan Witmarsh, Allison Cole. But Cole Johnson's comics are my favorite. #minicomicSauce by Zak Sally and Mike Haeg, aka Mister Mike (1993). This is a flip book about over-the-top alcoholism. #minicomicTepid by John Hankiewicz (2002). This comic has the logic of dreams or unreliable memories. Haunting and intricate. Imagine drawing all these lines! #minicomicI Like You by Cynthia Yuang Cheng (2018). I love Cynthia's art and the story is so tender. #minicomic #flameconBeneath the Mask by Iasmin Omar Ata (2018? 2017?). I picked this up at Flame Con not realizing it was fanfic for a game I'm unfamiliar with (Persona 5). I enjoyed it all the same. The red and black patterns on that first page is a seizure visualized. #minicomic #flameconAndros 5 by Max Clotfelter (2011). The king of high-detail scruff. His drawings are amazing. I feel like he and Chris Wright are brethren somehow. (They went to art school together, right?) #minicomicTrim 2 by Aaron Lange. This feels edgy in a very 90s way, but it's from 2014! It revels in bad taste and is definitely not "woke." If a racist or sexist message isn't the point of his "White Male Privilege" comic, I'm not sure what is. #minicomicThese are my Hellen Jo comics (not including her issue of Frontier). Jin and Jan 1 (2008) was published by Sparkplug. Hellen quotes Black & White (aka Tekkon Kinkreet) on the first page and the influence comes through. #minicomicPaper Pencil Life 3 by Summer Pierre (2015). A diary comic about the everyday anxiety of being a mother and an artist. #minicomic
