Just got this:

Newave!: The Underground Mini Comix of the 1980s
Ed. Michael Dowers (FB)

In the early 1990s, I really got into American mini comics/zines (factsheet five!) and was sending out US dollar bills and getting minis in my mailbox in return. Starhead Comix, JR Williams, Dennis Worden, Steve Willis, Peter Bagge, Leanne Franson, Adrian Tomine, etc.

Some hits, some duds and I even got BigO magazine to do a mini comic in one of their issues. (Michael Mindflyer of OIC)

Same thing for this 892 page tome - mostly it's down memory lane and for archival purposes but little repeat reading value.

Btw, just found Leanne's website:

Just found this old review of mine of Below Critical Radar: Fanzines and Alternative Comics From 1976 to Now.
