red eye by ludovic besancon. quarter sized 116 pages .one dollar postage paid.

red eye is a short novella of sorts that's almost dreamlike in a way, even though it's about actual happenings. it starts off with him going to a protest, and the strangeness that goes on -- since the protesters are supposed to dress up like "capitalists". then it goes to him going to the "corporate party" after the protest and not being allowed through the door; perhaps because of appearance, not "radical looking enough". then he tries to go train hopping with a group of people but instead gives up, goes back home. ludovic also talks about visiting kurt cobain's house. what lies inside all these scenarios is a lot of actual feeling -- instead of romanticizing things, ludovic examines the realities and constraints of being apart of a group of politically active friends. he makes some really interesting points about art, and how it's $400 for a painting, yet he couldn't sell his zine for $40. a short sweet little read that wraps you up in his world.

by ethan 1/4 size, 16 pages .twobucks postage paid.

i think ethan always gets the shaft when i talk about or advertise his comic here. or at least in this one he might (i'm on allergy meds and i have jet lag, yay!), but enough about me, what about shut up dirt snake? it's another fah-bu-lous comic from ethan, with weird street bum humor, a dad pulling out a rifle and even a cameo from our latest cute san-x friend tarepanda. besides, if you don't like any of the content, the cover is so cool that it's worth at least 2 bucks.

s n a k e s also by ethan. itty bitty size. green pages .fifty cents postage paid.

this is such a cute comic! it's itty bitty but action packed. take that big thick shiny corporate magazines -- this litte comic is much smaller and way more interesting.

untitled #1 and #2 by maximus .one dollar postage paid.

comic by maximus. an essential to any post modernist hipster etc etc i actually like this comic a lot, truth be told, and i think what seperates this comic from others is a definite intellectual yet cynical feel about it. it's smartass without being arrogant, educated and political without being pedantic, and of course the illustrations are incredible! untitled #2 is a continuation of #1. both are wonderful.

whalebone by evelyn. quarter sized 48 pages .one dollar postage paid.

how to describe it? it's filled with photographs and fragments, short anecdotes described in such lyrical poetic glory. beautiful.
