Just a Matter of Time
You know, this isn’t usually how I read and/or review minis. I usually get a pile of them, read them all and then go back and think about them. This time I’m only reading one or two a day so I can keep up with this “one creator a day” business, and I think it’s the way to go. It gives the individual issues a lot more time to sink in. This one is an autobiographical tale of when the author was asked to go on a train ride with some diplomats and draw their portraits. A very understated and slightly surreal art style, and it turns out that the only people he cares about when it’s all over is the happy French couple he saw randomly on the train. A nice piece of work, and one more thing to convince me that I’m going to have to throw a lot of money at the fine folks at Stripburger pretty soon to see what I’ve been missing…
E-mail him and see what he has lying around, won’t you?
Chris Staros over at Top Shelf told me that although the Mini Burger set isn’t available on the web page, you can still order it through their online catalog. Just go to the ordering page, click on #4 at the bottom (additional comments) and write in that you want the Mini Burger set for $19.95. They have it in stock, they just haven’t updated the site in a while. From what I’ve read, it’s worth it. There might be two bad ones in this bunch and a couple of mediocre ones, but the good ones are good in ways that you don’t usually see in this country.
