Michael Dowers tells me he’ll be producing a new two-volume set of books in the same vein as his ‘Newave! The Underground Mini Comix of the 1980s’! And he’s looking for submissions of previously published mini-comics.
Here are more details from Michael:
This series will cover mini comics from the dawn of time (early 70′s) to the present. Since Newave has already been covered, the main focus will be on the 1990′s to the present although earlier minis will be covered too. The books will be the same size (only more like 700 pages each) but will only reproduce mini comics that are 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 or smaller just like the Newave book. The two volumes are to be simply titled “Treasury of Mini Comics” Volumes one & two.
I am looking for contributors. I am looking for the best of the best. Any creator can send me their mini comics, disks, or photocopies to be considered for publication for this project. Or email me and send low-res jpegs to: email@example.com.
Please send titles to: Michael Dowers 361 E. Birnie Slough Rd., Cathlamet , WA 98612.
If they want their material returned it is important to enclose return postage. Any mini comics that are kept will be placed in the Fantagraphics collection after the books are published. Also anybody sending actual mini comics will receive comics in trade from Brownfield press.
