This is an advertisement from your trusty sponsor, PictureBox:
PictureBox currently has a bunch of new products ready to ship that should be of interest to any reader of Comics Comics. In fact, readers of Comics Comics are known the world over for their sophisticated taste. First up, Takashi Nemoto, of Monster Men infamy, is representing with 2 new prints and one poster. This is the first time we’ve offered any artwork from Nemoto, and maybe the first time it’s been available in North America. So hop to it!
We have School, a wonderful new zine about the female experience in contemporary Japanese culture, including two excellent, revealing articles on shojo manga creators Fumiko Okada and Yumiko Oshima, and a blazing new tabloid collection of record covers and posters by comics and graphics heavyweight Saeki Toshio.
And don’t even get me started on Ken (“Snoopee” and Deerhoof) Kagami’s brilliant, subtle zine, Celebrities’ Penises. It’s a masterpiece of drawing and humor in full compliance with the Golden Mean, The Golden Lasso, The Golden Triangle and The Golden Shower.
Also, note that we’re now carrying zines and projects from the British collective Famicon. We like these funny British people, and are pleased they’re allowing their publications to reach the colonies. Last but not least, a hot new publication from Michael Williams detailing his views on Copenhagen.
So, indulge your fancies and enjoy a fine, refreshing PictureBox item.
