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 email@example.com. maybe email first to see if they’re still available? or tweet at dude- @zepfan69. unfortunately the banana pictured above has long been et.
“The Backbone Of Night” is available online at Chipsylvania
Jeff’s been making zines for years, and each new one is amazing! uh, this is no exception, in that it is exceptional. Jeff’s zines are so good because they seem like “art books” but there are enough “zine cues” to underline that this is not some pretentious mark that someone is trying to make upon the Earth, it’s just the next thing from Jeff. Oh, and we also have I think 1 more copy of Jazz Tobacco, which is mega good.
Jeff is AKA Noise Nomads. here’s video of a 2009 performance (shot by ZEBU):
and here’s a song that one of his fans wrote about him:

video from the Pak / Sakiko Mori collab that took place at Tom Bubul’s show at RK projects last spring.
Tom’s show was only up for a week, but every night had some sort of event, usually with pizza and beer.
Prints from the show, in the form of the final installment of Tom’s zine “Ospreys”, are available at Chipsylvania here. Tommy’s got a new zine out too, a “shitty drawing zine” called “Zola’s”, which he is being super cocky about in a real funny way. here’s the regular information:
ZOLA’S is my new monthly drawing zine. It is meant to be conversational and documentary above all else.
The constraints are:
- Must be produced in one day from drawings made in the previous month
- Must be produced monthly
- Must be at least 12 pages in A5 format
For the time being this project will not be documented online.
and here’s the cocky shit:
you fucks, I have seen all of your dirt-style drawing zines, you have no idea what you’re doing, you have no idea what a dirt-style drawing zine even is
ospreys is over, no more unmailable formats that come out twice a year, no more wackado print processes
just the real shit = a bunch of drawings from off of the floor of my room, and whatever else I want to put in there, inkjetted the fuck onto some 8.5×11 pages that get folded in half and stapled every month of the year
it’s not a compilation, it’s not a jam, it’s not for fun – it’s because you fucks are not pulling weight, and somebody has got to show your asses
I know what you’re asking- is it good? Haha, no? I mean, “whatever”?! It’s a bunch of shitty drawings! Also the drawings are cameraphoned and then edited together on the computer, and printed in barely color, like, black lines have weird blue edges and slight digital artifacts. It’s an interesting voice in the conversation? Zola’s is available here. upcoming from dude is a Jandek fanzine, here’s a tease:
