Please note: For these purposes "mini-comic" means low-frills small press comics usually self-published in runs of 100-200. This movement began with "newave comix" in the '70s. What we're not talking about is smaller-than-normal comic books published by mainstream companies or other corporations. We're also (generally speaking) not talking about ashcans.
For those curious, we're actually looking for mini-comics and such for a few reasons:
• to add to our permanent archive
• to add to our mini-comics cover gallery (a bigger, better one is currently in the works)
• to make them available to people who just love mini-comics
Additionally, we're planning a huge online database for mini-comics and fanzines, a project I'm really anxious to get going (imagine something like the Grand Comics Database but for mini-comics and fanzines only). I've been involved with mini-comics for 25 years and I think a reference tool like that is way overdue.
Also, we review new mini-comics at the Poopsheet Foundation. The site's also got mini-comics news, forums and other fun stuff. If you're interested in mini-comics past or present come join us!
