Mothers News cartoonist and celebrated artíste graphíque CF has been pumping out excellent zines in limited quantity lately! last month he dropped “EXTREME COMICS” and “AWOL”, both very nice entries into the field (that field being “nice books of drawings”). pretty raw, but also well trimmed, well maintained. sushi? fruit salad? anyway pretty sure both are SOLD OUT. you might fare better with this month’s offerings: WORST COMICS and EASTER MERCURY. stamped edition of 50 from the lad’s own Fantasy Empire press. not sure how long this trend will continue so catch while can!
if you want these dudes they’re $13ppd / $20 for both paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org. maybe email first to see if they’re still available? or tweet at dude- @zepfan69. unfortunately the banana pictured above has long been et.

MARK LORD DOES NOT REST ON A SUNDAY!
Huge news! Mothers News is adding a comics page! And the lineup so far is completely incredible, AS THOUGH FROM A DREAM! Pictured above is the character sheet from Mickey Zacchilli‘s NEW totally brilliant comic strip “Graveyard Ducks”. I don’t want to say too much, but the lineup of talent on this is MAJOR. And we’re not talking about psychedelic art comics here, we’re talking about REAL newspaper comics format- characters, tropes, gags… you know, THE FUNNIES.
OK, I’ll say 1 more because it should be obvious- CF is drawing an exclusive strip called “Monorail High”, set in a high school. “Also there’s a janitor”.
Subscriptions are HIGHLY recommended.
