Time Warp Comix #1 edited by Dan Taylor
It's sad that it's just now occurring to me that I should have read this series in order. Oh well, live and learn. And forget, and repeat the same mistakes. This is the issue where Dan explains his plans for this series, basically that he'll put out the 8 page comic every time he has enough art to fill it. It started out as a tribute of sorts to Clay Geerdes, someone who was active in the 70's and 80's and was instrumental in getting the word out about all kinds of mini comics. The first story (by Jim Valentino) in here tells the story of Clay for those of us who are culturally illiterate as to how the mini comics "movement" started. There's only one other piece in here, a two pager by Bob Vojtko of two old geezers pining away for the old days when they could make mini comics. The love for Clay is palpable here, it makes me wish I had actually seen something from the guy. Actually, chances are that in the piles of minis around my house there must be something with work from the guy in it, but I have no idea where that would be. Kids, you should read stuff like this, get a little sense of history. And for those of you old enough to remember the early, early days of mini comics, well, a little nostalgia never hurt anybody, right?
