What People Are Saying About CC3


Wednesday, July 11, 2007

As most of you know, this is the week Comics Comics 3 is supposed to be shipping to finer comic stores, and early reviews are in!

Tom “The Comics Reporter” Spurgeon calls it “lovely-looking … full of engaging essays where writers stake out a unique aesthetic position and then defend it. A lot of comics coverage leaves off that first part. The third and best issue.”

Joe “Jog” McCulloch
(who, as a contributor to the issue, is perhaps not completely trustworthy) calls it a “fine newspaper of comics information and festivity”, and further claims, “It’s a scientifically proven fact that a copy of Comics Comics can heal a multitude of diseases if pressed against the offending portion of the body, though it’s gotta be a sick body part, not just offending.”

Last but not least (well, technically, I guess it is least), Newsarama’s Chris Mautner ranks the issue as “pretty good”. But he also says there are “lots of crack reviews”, which sounds very good to me.

Next post: less hype, more blog.

    When will this be available through the site? My “favorite store” Quimbys does carry it, but its usually gone by the time I get there because my bike is very slow.

    Did I only say “pretty good”? My mistake. I meant to say “fucking awesome.”

    We should have it up for sale very soon, though I can’t give you an exact date yet, unfortunately. Keep checking in. If you can’t wait, it looks like Copacetic has it in stock.
