Writer/editor Josh Pachter granted permission to reprint his story from Espionage, June 1986, in The Digest Enthusiast book eight. I asked Marc Myers if he’d create a collage artwork piece to accompany the story, and he agreed. The first look arrived in today’s email.
In the meantime, here’s page 140 from the story’s original appearance.
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
