Mickey Zacchilli is one of my favorite comics artists out right now. She has a wild line that zags all over the damn place, an obsessive personality that powers it, and a fierce ambivalence that ensures that no one is allowed to drive. She really is the best! she has a great comic (RAV), a bunch of cool bands (Bloodhuff, Dungeon Broads), a mess of weird t-shirt and poster designs, a new cassette label (Price Tapes), and on top of that she’s a complete maniac! You see a lot of comics nowadays about boring dudes that are sad because they sit inside drawing comics all the time– it’s nice to know that Mickey is just as likely at any moment to be drawing comics as singing Moon River over the CB radio, driving to the beach, flipping tables at an underground restaurant, or just plain screaming at the moon with her 25 equally insane roommates. Her twitter account (to not be linked here) is the worst! Who could care??????? I LOVE MICKEY!!!!!!!!
Mickey draws the comic strip “Graveyard Ducks”, which is printed exclusively in Mothers News. She’s currently working on the 5th issue of RAV, and supposedly an oversize book of completely mental nightmare drawings currently without publisher…
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.
