CA Comics Completely Drawable Comic Book

CA Comics Completely Drawable Comic Book
by CA Comics

This may be the single greatest comic book ever written/drawn. That's totally up to you as this is a blank comic book, complete with panels, printed on both sides, stapled together. Basically, it's a make-your-own comic.


Drinky Crow Drinks Again

Drinky Crow Drinks Again
by Tony Millionaire

I used to be able to read Millionaire's comics in my local alt-weekly. But a year ago, in a stereotypical fit of cartoonishly misguided liberalism, my local alt-weekly canned the strip as a result of its institutional misunderstanding of humor, cartooning, art, etc. This book catches me up on the dark, often bleak, humor my local "alternative" weekly thought was too offensive for my delicate eyes.


Little Book of Tom of Finland: Blue Collar

Little Book of Tom of Finland: Blue Collar

Little Book of Tom of Finland: Cops And Robbers

Little Book of Tom of Finland: Cops And Robbers

Little Book of Tom of Finland: Military Men

Little Book of Tom of Finland: Military Men
by Tom of Finland / Dian Hanson (editor)

These adorable editions collect the famous artist's illustrations of strapping men - and the only thing "little" is the size of the book. Everything else you'll find inside is rather large.


MAD Magazine #540

MAD Magazine #540
by the Usual Gang of Idiots

I think the cover says it all about this issue of MAD. Right now, we could all use a bit of a laff.


Outta Pocket #2

Outta Pocket #2

This local skatezine is loaded with excellent, full-color, action-packed photos, and interviews with Baltimore skaters.
