BEYOND THE CLOCK #24 comic fanzine BUTCH GUICE Doug Hazlewood BATMAN 1980
This past week I attended Industry Day at the Center for Cartoon Studies, which occurs late in the spring semester and brings editors, publishers, critics and agents together to do a two-hour panel on the state of the comics industry as well as several hours worth of one-on-one portfolio reviews. Here are some scattered thoughts regarding the experience.
A true story of Bobby’s life on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in the early ’80s, when he was just 14 and 15 years old. It’s based on three shows he saw down there – The Cramps, Ramones, and Stiff Little Fingers. Join in the fun (& fatigue) Bobby experienced as he ran in the streets with his friend Chris, in search of drugs, girls, and punk rock!
This week I’m listing a ton of great mini-comics and such at eBay to help raise some funds for Poopsheet HQ. There are a bunch up already (see teaser below) with plenty more on the way. Please take a look and if you could share this with your comics pals I’d appreciate it. Thanks!
