Nyx at Sea Green Zines takes a look at George Rex’s Oh Brother! Some Stories About Growing Up With a Brother With Autism.
Oh Brother! is an A5 full colour zine collection of comics about growing up with a brother with autism – and it includes drafts and background material for the upcoming book.
I hardly know where to get started with this zine. I really love George Rex’s art, and that George would open up about what is very likely a somewhat sensitive part of their life in this way leaves me feeling honoured for a glimpse of a life perspective I would not otherwise get.

The world of a record dealer is only slightly more respectable than the profession of cartoonist or comic shop owner, as Lorenz Peter knows well. Peter, the award-winning artist behind Dark Adaptation and Chaos Mission, is also a musician and record collector. A few years ago he opened up a small record shop in Toronto called LP’s LPs, and started buying and selling vinyl in earnest. Now we have a sort of record of his years in the vinyl mines in the form of a new graphic novel, a semi-fictional account called On Vinyl, due this spring from Conundrum Press…

… SlowQuest II is a choose your own adventure zine, which means that there are many possible outcomes to the choices you make in this fantasy realm. You have received an invitation to work for the wizard, but actually getting to the wizard isn’t as simple as it sounds.
I was proud as punch that I didn’t die on my first combination of choices, as that’s definitely a possibility in this zine. Of course, there are so many possible paths – drink potions, get lost, punch a bear – that I happily spent time going through every possible combination of steps. …

For Mini-Comic Monday it’s…Copy This! #49. This issue is a 40-page, B&W info/news mini comic zine published by D. Blake Werts. Cover by Dale Martin.
Blake returns to the interviewer role this time around and shines the spotlight on Dale Martin! Blake and Dale start off with a discussion about Dale’s experiences living in different states. Then the two talk about the shifting comic convention scene away from original storytelling to fan art and cosplay. Next Dale provides some insight on balancing the creative process with self-promotion. Dale also delves a bit into his history of discovering the digest format, finding like-minded folks through APA-5, and losing a community of peers. Later Dale talks about the struggle of finding an audience somewhere between comics and zines, and the unexpected birth of Watusi the Talking Dog. Toward the end of the interview Dale and Blake talk about joys of attending SPACE and then dive a little deeper into Dale’s painting and collage work. The two end the interview with some thoughts on the future of comic periodicals and web comics.
In the community news and info section we’re treated to offerings from: Adam Yeater (One Last Day); Alexander Lay (The Blessed Bo Brimstone); Blair Wilson (Radium Lipstick Parade of Constituents); Charles Brubaker (The Fuzzy Princess); David Miller (Toadstool Tales); Edward Bolman (The White Buffalo Gazette); Jeff Clayton (JepComix); Joseph Tenney (Magick Mania); Pukka Joint Massif (Node Pajomo); and Tom Cherry (The Adventures of Leaf Erikson).
