    Like another reader below, I wanted to love this book It s a worthwhile read if you re at all into mini comics gonna call em comics instead of comix, as I ve always just hated that x for some reason , and there are some good, informative interviews herein, particularly with Clay Geerdes, who godfathered a lot of the early work of these artists and sounds like a real stand up sort of fellow It is also important to document eras in comics publishing for posterity particularly in self publishi Like another reader below, I wanted to love this book It s a worthwhile read if you re at all into mini comics gonna call em comics instead of comix, as I ve always just hated that x for some reason , and there are some ...

    A thick anthology of mini comix as the title would imply , but one who s title doesn t do it full justice No mention on the front or back covers that the anthology includes interviews with people who were key to the surge in popularity of mini comix an area I was previously ignorant of, apart from being aware of their existence , including essays by Clay Geerdes, who seems to have been the inspiration for the majority of contributors to the collection to create their own comix Also, the anth A thick anthology of mini comix as the title would imply , but one who s title doesn t do it full justice No mention on the front or back covers that the anthology includes interviews with people who were key to the surge in popularity of mini comix an area I was previously ignorant of, apart from being aware of their existence , including essays by Clay Geerdes, who seems to have been the inspiration for the majority of contributors to the collection t...
