Zines

In this, the 35-year anniversary issue of Cometbus, Aaron interviews cartoonists. Made for both the diehards and those generally wary of comics, the zine is a dive into New York comic culture—from those in the spotlight to those lighting the world behind the scenes.

Interviews with Gabrielle Bell, Robin Enrico, Jeffrey Lewis, Julia Wertz, Bill Kartalopoulos, Gary Panter, Adrian Tomine, Ben Katchor, Paul Levitz, Drew Friedman, Karen Green, Gabe Fowler, Kim Deitch, and Al Jaffee. With contributing interviewers Zak Sally and Charle Brownstein.

100 pages, half-letter size, perfect-bound. Cover art by Jeffrey Lewis, cartoonist portraits by Nate Powell.

A highly enjoyable series of comics adapted from music biographies. Within: Bob Dylan's makeshift Blood on the Tracks backing band, Kurt & Courtney's mac-and-cheese trials, John & Yoko's primal scream therapy, John Coltrane being a good guy, Mike Watt wearing a pumpkin on his head, the feuds of J Mascis & Lou Barlow, and Kristin Hersh's evil self.

40 pages, half-letter size.

Comic artist Jason Martin's Covers has long been one of our favorites and we're so thrilled about this long-awaited second issue. These "covers album"-style comic adaptations of his favorite stories about musicians are just a joy.

A back-issue fave from one of the best zines ever. Long personal stories that look both outward and inward in surprising ways. The opening piece on love is possibly one of the best Doris moments, going through the many different kinds of love, the ways it can look and the ways it can change us.

Temporary sale! In her short illustrated essay A Few Good Boys, M. Sabine Rear writes about growing up surrounded by art from straight white men and the hoops she had to go through to relate to it.
