Catte Belle and Macka and CAB Gets Inked 2019 by Charles Brubaker

Catte Belle and Macka and CAB Gets Inked 2019 are each 20-page, black and white, minicomic, comic strip books written and illustrated by Charles Brubaker. Published by Smallbug Press.

These two black and white minis (the color image is a postcard) feature Charles’ 2019 Inktober work through a series of single and multiple panel cartoons. Familiar characters from Charles’ comic books and strips make appearances in short gag-themed strips showcasing Charles’ mastery of inking and storytelling! Each of these are great for a quick chuckle, but can also be viewed as a resource for learning about the anatomy of a cartoon. Charles does an excellent job of laying out multiple panels to set up a gag and then deliver with 100% satisfaction! A lot can be gleaned from these minis as well as any of Charles’ other comics!

The Space Odditorium by Chris Calzia and Dave Law

The Space Odditorium is 12-page, full color, digest size, Sci-Fi fantasy comic written by Chris Calzia with art by Dave Law. Published by Public Restroom Comics.

This is a standalone mini companion piece to volumes 1 and 2 of The Space Odditorium. The ‘70s psychedelic art style is what grabbed my attention to this comic, then the story hooked me! It’s pretty short but jumps right in without a lot of exposition. A member of a holographic family questions if free will exist or not as he contemplates how the last human can be used as a weapon against alien overlords.

The art is popping with bright colors, halftone dots, and unconventional compositions! This serves as a great introduction to The Space Odditorium series as it familiarizes the reader with the central character, setting, and showcases the impressive art!
