Mail Bag: GRIXLY #42 by Nate McDonough

Nate McDonough / shop

Crazy, mostly autobiographical comics by Nate McDonough. I really like the cover drawing. Why do I keep thinking it’s an amusement park mascot? Anyway. Subjects include superhero movies, Tom Atkins, politics and other sordid aspects of life. Color covers and a fold-out color centerspread too.

Mail Bag: YOU DON’T GET THERE FROM HERE #46 & 47 by Carrie McNinch

Carrie McNinch / Etsy

It’s hard to believe Carrie’s been doing these diary comics for nearly 50 issues! Pretty impressive, I’d say. #47 is the first part of a trip to Japan with this issue’s focus on Nagoya, where she sees lots of bare butts and gets to ring the penis bell. What a life!

Mail Bag: FOREVER AND EVERYTHING #2 by Kyle Bravo

Kyle Bravo / Hot Iron Press

This is a nice collection of “partially true stories” by Kyle. Fun, somewhat stream-of-consciousness autobio stories about family life, travel, making art and the world at large. Nicely printed and with a two-color Risograph cover.

PEDANTIC STAN, new mini-comic by John Freeman and Lew Stringer

From Lew Stringer:

The London Film and Comic Con is this weekend, I’m one of the many comics guests who’ll be there… and I’m bringing along a new comic featuring a character from the past.

“Pedantic Stan, The Comics Fan” was created by John Freeman and myself back in 1990 and appeared in the comics news magazine Speakeasy every month. It’s never been reprinted so now I’ve gathered all the stories together (plus a special one that appeared in the UKCAC 1990 con booklet) as an A5 landscape mini-comic.

The 16 page comic will be exclusively available from my table at LFCC over the weekend for £2.00 After that, you’ll be able to buy it from my online shop next week (and from other comic cons I attend this year).

Une Fable Sombre by Richard Krauss

Une Fable Sombre http://poopsheetfoundation.com is a 32-page, B&W on cream colored paper, text comic with wraparound cover, created by Richard Krauss for Rick Bradford’s Poopsheet Foundation’s Monthly Mini-Comics.

A private detective is hired to find a missing husband and stumbles onto a much larger mystery involving more missing people and a creepy pincher-hand! Richard Krauss tells this story through a series of single page panels with all text contained outside of the panel. Richard’s cartoony style turns a gloomy story about loss into a whimsically dark tale full of exaggerated characters and a much unexpected twist!
