BAM: Big Ass Mini By David Recine et al.
eBook (PDF): $2.99
Download immediately.
A new concept in publishing, BAM takes a look at comics-as-outsider-art. It is a collection of minicomics--- comics that were originally lovingly xeroxed, collated, folded and stapled by hand by... More > their creators, then self distributed in the artists' local communities. These comics provide a unique look at the local color and local art scenes of communities in countries as diverse as North Korea, New Zealand, Australia, Norway, the U.K., The United States, and Canada. Weird, quirky, and the product of artists with a singular vision who work without compensation and with little recognition, BAM has already generated controversy. One critic calls it "A noble idea dragged down by ill-minded proletarianism.... like a kitten suffocating inside a forty-pound sack of pigsh**." Another critic declares: "Not a single person's work was turned down. And this strength - this anarchic outsider strength - will carry BAM into comic publishing history."
