New! The Comix Reader! Buy!


There's a brand new rag on the stands...
Richard Cowdry, the man behind it explainates thus:
 
"The first issue of THE COMIX READER, Britain's new Underground, Alternative, Independent, Satirical, Carnivalesque, ComixStrip Compendium!

The Comix Reader is a 24 page tabloid-sized (approximately A3) anthology of mainly full colour comic strips that strives to recapture some of the fun and free spirit of the 60's underground press. Printed on newsprint with a cover price of just £1, it's the opposite of the expensive limited edition; accessible to all who are interested. It's also an experiment in distribution and publishing : 9,000 copies paid for and distributed by the artists - a first, small attempt in taking "alternative" comics to a wider audience. People love comics!

It features work by 22 artists : Tobias Tak, Steve Tillotson, Ralph Kidson, Ellen Lindner, Paul O'Connell, Saban Kazim, Bird, Tim & Alex Levin, Gareth Brookes, Paul Ashley Brown, Lord Hurk, Kat Kon, Daniel Locke, Julia Homersham, Lawrence Elwick, Alex Potts, Jimi Gherkin, Scott Smith, Peter Lally, Sina Evil, and Richard Cowdry.
