Yesterday’s mail brought a new mini comic, a classic 8-page style mini comic, from TDE contributor Bob Vojtko. It’s filled with single-page comics and gag cartoons featuring Butrum Beaver who’s just turned 50. He’s feeling his age and the corporate overloads at the Lumber Yard where he works aren’t helping.
Bob also has four new cartoons in The Digest Enthusiast book eight, due out later this month.
Butrum Beaver #1 can be yours for the bargain price of just $1, postage paid. Contact Bob through his page on Facebook. And be sure to ask about his other mini comics like Fake Comics and Bent Lemons.
The new issue of Copy This! is an all art edition, dedicated to the memory of Joe Wehrle, Jr. who is featured in a back cover self-portrait. Two pages reprinting Joe’s Night Radio comic strip are included inside.
The 48-page issue is loaded with great work by many of my favorite indie cartoonists including several whose work is featured in The Digest Enthusiast:
Tom Brinkmann: two portraits
Brian Buniak*: Apricot O’Toon
Brad W. Foster: comic and gag cartoon
Marc Myers: two collages
Bob Vojtko*: two gag cartoons
Here’s the balance of the contributors:
Verl Holt Bond
