Not My Small Diary No. 20 – The Power of Music https://www.etsy.com/listing/788277285/not-my-small-diary-20-the-power-of-music is a 136-page, digest size, black and white, perfect bound comics anthology edited by Delaine Derry Green. Cover by Ben Snakepit.

Not My Small Diary is always such a pleasure to read and this issue is even more enjoyable than usual because it’s about The Power of Music! As a music lover myself, I’m always interested to learn how others are moved by the tunes. Specific songs, live performances, or just artists that somehow connect, the power music has on so many people is just incredible. Within these pages Delaine Derry Green collects a wide range of individual musical experiences from over 50 artists and writers and shares their stories as told by their own hands! The finished work is a rhythmic composition of beautiful styles spanning the breadth between the roughness of old-school underground to the polished draftsmanship of commercial work! The personal experiences shared through these stories really hit home for me. Music has been such a big and important part of my life it’s easy to relate to the various tales. Even my mother-in-law’s friend (and terrific singer in my opinion), Slim Whitman, gets a mention in this comic! The variety of stories and experiences couldn’t be any better!

In issue #44 of Copy This! D. Blake Werts sits down for a chat with Brad W. Foster. The two talk about Brad’s early life growing up in, and working in, Texas. Brad talks about the difficulty of finding work as an artist at the ad agencies, then going the freelance route with the aid of bookstores and their many, many magazines! Brad continues to open up as Blake inquires about his entrance into comics, college, and working after college. Brad goes on to reveal how he got into minicomics, and exactly how many pieces of his artwork have been printed in some form or another, and it’s a lot! Brad wraps things up with some insightful words about his preferred tools of the trade and inspirations!

We’ve hit 10,000 individual entries in the Database!

The honors for entry #10,000 go to Steven Ogden’s reference work, The Brad W. Foster Checklist of Published Works from the 20th Century (1972-2000). That checklist, by the way, contains 2,800 entries just for Brad Foster. And he’s only one man! Or so they say. But that may give you some idea of how much work is still left to be done at the Database.

Thanks, as always, to our patrons for their support. It makes a big difference and it’s nice to know there are folks who believe in a project like this. If you’d like to help the Database get bigger and better please take a look at the Patreon page.

Here’s to the next 10,000!
