I just ran across a thoughtful review of Britt Aamodt’s recent book Superheroes, Strip Artists & Talking Animals: Minnesota’s Contemporary Cartoonists here.
Itâ€™s a remarkable achievement, and if anybody is going to be in Minneapolis on August 7th you should click that website for details on picking up a copy. If you get one there, itâ€™s a measly $5 for this beast. If not youâ€™ll have to pay for shipping, which just about doubles the price, but this thing is utterly unique in the comics world and worth the expense. Iâ€™m old enough to remember pulling the funnies out of the Sunday paper, spreading them out on the ground, laying down to read them and have them actually be funny.
BIG FUNNY’s first review is online at Poopsheet Foundation! Click logo to read it:
Can’t make it to the gallery opening at Altered Esthetics on August 7th but want to grab a copy of BIG FUNNY? You can now pre-order a copy (limit one per customer at this point) on the BIG FUNNY website.
Just click here and then scroll down until you see the purchase button:
If you don’t have a paypal account, you can use a credit card.
The massive, 48 page BIG FUNNY newspaper is $5. If you’re pre-ordering one we tack on $5.95 for shipping & handling. Pre-ordered copies will ship out August 7th, 2009.
Note that if you are in Minneapolis and you want a copy, I’d buy it soon at the Lutefisk Sushi show at Altered Esthetics. There aren’t many left.
