The Minneapolis Zine Fest happened a couple of weekends ago and it was pretty fun. The modest space of the SSCA was populated with zinesters, mini-comics artists, small press publishers and various denizens of the book arts. The walls were crammed full of historical zine artifacts. Most were generously loaned too the SSCA by the vast archives of the city of Mt. Holly. I took a few pictures.
The Mayor of Mt. Holly didn’t want to stop speaking.
The Crap~O~Mat represents the latest in zine dispensing technology. From the laboratories of Mt. Holly.
Mt. Holly researchers have been able to achieve a high level of zine miniaturization.
The Mayor doesn’t like it when top-secret ciphers go missing. JP Coovert plays innocent.
Will Dinski shows off his high pressure sales tactics.
And there’s more here.
Stwallskull reports that Lutefisk Sushi Bento boxes are now for sale online at the Altered Aesthetic website. As I mentioned before I participated in Lutefisk Sushi Bento Box C along with some 50 other Minneapolis cartoonists. These boxes were previously unavailable to ‘out-of-towners.’ Now, thanks to the miracle of modern technology, they can be had by all. I believe quantities are limited, so what are you waiting for?
