Smoke Signal comix

(Desert Island) This broadsheet arty comix compilation makes Fort Thunder look like Fart Thunder! Actually, despite the variety, affinity for imperfect artwork, and pleasant pretensions of artiness, the issues of this have been more accessible and at times comical than the great Brian Chippendale/Brinkamn/etc. publications of yore. "Names" like Ron Rege and Johnny Ryan, and should be names like Jennifer Grims and Sam Gaskin mix together to make a Caesar's Salad of Comix Awesomeness.

  1. I am a big fan of all these free-comics-newspaper-thingees that are coming out (POOD, Diamond Comics) but I especially love Smoke seems to have a pretty clear "manifesto" and direction, and I like that it mixes established artists and at the same time gives lesser-known artists a chance for print.
