The Naugacomics are similar in spirit and format to Willis' Morty Comix and are another precursor to the current ACEO / art cards. Like Morty Comix, the typical format of the Naugas was the hand-drawn, four-page booklet. Some were sketchy, some were more polished, some were hand-colored. Some of them even represented installments in continuing stories – the long-running "Houseboat on the Styx" serial, for example.
Begun in January, 1986, over 500 (perhaps more) were produced and are scattered around the globe. This series attempted to collect as many of them as possible.
This series was published by Jeff Nicholson (Ultra Klutz), who was also responsible for the Steve Willis Archives series.
Ad promoting Ultra Klutz #1 (underground), Ultra Klutz and Other Tales and the Penny Ranch Price List. Printed as the back cover for Social Commentary for Our Times #2.
Collected previously published work by Steve Willis.
Collected previously published work by Steve Willis plus unpublished work from Dale Luciano's collection.
What Is This Site?
A virtual archive of mini-comics, fanzines, small press comics, newave comix and related items. The physical archive, housed at PF headquarters, is being built with personal acquisitions as well as generous donations from supporters. This project is most definitely a work in progress.
