Steven Ogden has left us.


My friend, longtime fan, author, fanzine publisher and comics researcher Steven Ogden died on March 1st, 2019 after a lengthy battle with leukemia and everything that goes along with its treatment.

Steve – along with his wife, Vicki – published fanzines and mini-comics through Spotted Zebra Press/New Spotted Zebra Press since the ’80s (or perhaps slightly earlier). Publications included Ouroborus, the mammoth Brad W. Foster Checklist of Published Works from the 20th Century (1972-2000), Edgar’s Journal, Metaphysical Pornographic Funnies and many others. He was also a longtime member of FAPA (The Fantasy Amateur Press Association).

Steve was so enthusiastic about mini-comics and fan publishing and was also a supporter of the Poopsheet Foundation. One of the ways he showed that support was by donating a stack of disks containing thousands of cover scans for the Mini-Comic and Fanzine Database. I’ve thus far used over 2,000 of those scans to create new entries and still have disks I haven’t even touched yet.

I feel fortunate that I got to hang out with Steve and Vicki on several occasions (unlike with most folks I know through comics) and am really thankful for that. My heart breaks for Vicki, family and friends. It may be a cliche but the one consolation is that he no longer has to suffer as he as for so long.

I can’t believe you’re gone, Steve. Thank you for everything.

Elsewhere: Nyx on DRONGO #1 by Natalie Michelle Watson [Sea Green Zines]

Drongo Issue 1 Natalie Michelle Watson Drongo Issue 1 is a full-colour (with some black and white pages) zine a bit closer in size to US letter than to A4 with a variety of articles, comics, a quiz…

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.

Grixly #42 at the Mini-Comic and Fanzine Database.

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!

You Don’t Get There from Here at the Mini-Comic and Fanzine Database (woefully incomplete).

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.

Forever and Everything #2 at the Mini-Comic and Fanzine Database.

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).

Mail Call: MINIS, DIGESTS, ETC. #9 by Scott Davis

Scott Davis has another new issue out of his “Iterative Reference Guide” to small press comics published since Jay Kennedy’s Newave Comix Price Guide.

32 pages of listings plus full-color cover scans scattered throughout. It’s a bit like the Mini-Comic and Fanzine Database (in fact, we’ve collaborated on both projects) but in print form. Definitely a good series to have in your library.

Email Scott for info on how to order.
