Treasury of Mini Comics vol 2, ed. by Michael Dowers (Fantagraphics) $29.99 – For everyone interested in the history of underground and alternative comics, Treasury of Mini Comics Volume Two gathers prime examples—more than 800 pages’ worth—from a quintessential self-publishing format in this compact but hefty hardcover. Previously only seen in limited-run pamphlets, these comics are startling, visionary, hilarious, profane, and profound. This volume also takes a look back at the wild 8-page sex comics called “Tijuana Bibles” that sprang from the 1930s underworld, as context for the contemporary comics that compose this book. Editor and mini comics pioneer Michael Dowers provides a historical survey of several decades’ worth of some of the best that DIY comics has to offer, from some of the medium’s most talented independent creators, including: Johnny Ryan, Trina Robbins, R.K. Sloane, Jeffrey Brown, Jim Rugg, Tom Neely, Ellen Forney, Esther Pearl Watson, Renée French, Lisa Hanawalt, J.R. Williams, Pat Moriarity, Souther Salazar, Theo Ellsworth, Nick Bertozzi, Dan Zettwoch, Marc Bell, and many others.
