Copy This! #48 by D. Blake Werts with Michael Neno and Verl Holt Bond

For Mini-Comic Monday it’s…Copy This! #48. Copy This! #48 is a 40-page, B&W mini comic info zine published by D. Blake Werts! Cover by Verl Holt Bond!

In this issue of Copy This! D. Blake Werts turns the reins over to Michael Neno as he sits down with Verl Holt Bond to dig into some interesting biographical background info! First Michael re-visits a 1992 interview he did with Verl, then he jumps forward and serves up a recent interview. Between the two interviews Michael and Verl discuss when Verl first began drawing, influences and inspirations, E.C. Comics, minicomics, the small press, music, teaching, fine art, projects since the first interview and current projects, the demise of review zines (miss you Factsheet5), and mental illness. Michael concludes the interview with Verl’s contact info so you can correspond with him and get your hands on some Verl Holt Bond comics!

Next, in the community news and info section, we’re treated to offerings from: Carrie McNinch (You Don’t Get There From Here); Ian Shires (Time Trvlr); Dale Martin (Watusi’s Doghouse Funhouse); George Erling (Cartoon Loonacy); Jacob Alvarez (HypnoSpiral Comics Book Reporter); Matt Jones (Silas, Intergalactic Stoner Slug); Lara (Dandelion Daydream); Scott Davis (Minis, Digest, Etc.); and Richard Krauss (The Digest Enthusiast).
