The new Animation Blast is out. Amid has pulled out all the stops and this issue really brings animation history to life. At 106 pages it is almost a book with full color throughout.
HI-Fructose #3 premiered at Comic Con but I never made it over to their booth. Full color, 90 pages with articles about Mark Ryden, Jim Woodring, Chris Ware, etc and a free Viewmaster reel of the photowork of Brian McCarty. Unbelievable production values and photography makes this the premiere alternative art magazine.
I really enjoy the work of Geoffrey Ellis. He shoots antique malls, RVs and other junk culture but gives them a life of their own. His Sad Kids color zine is a great way to get introduced to his work. But get one quick, it is limited to 75 signed copies.
Lastly is Aaron Renier's Spiral-Bound. It came out last year but it is one of my new favorite comic graphic novels. Great b/w art with a story that introduces us to a wonderful and personal world.
