Issue 11!




The Great Moments in Western Civ Postal Constituent Issue 11 is finished. And while subscribers will be receiving the September issue in October, they will be happy to know that I survived a car accident that had be hydroplaning across the I-190 twice. Coffee went flying and my room mate, Katrina, and I emerged from the wreckage sopping and confused but alive. My dear car Ethel is gone for good, but we did find a snail in the parking lot of the Carstar and he is now our anti-social studio pet. His name is Eisenhower, which is the other name of my car. I am convinced my vehical was reincarnated as a snail. I tried to wake him up for this photo-op but he would have none of it.


Snails aside issue 11 is all about Franz Kafka and the way his biographers seem to fundementally disagree about who he was. It includes fold out pages and a screen printed cover. All very exciting, I promise.

Hi Caitlin, I've been meaning to tell you how much I loved my first issue (11) of the postal constituent, I felt so excited and important to discover my membership card, And I wanted to thank you so much for remembering about Comics by the Cover and sending me it! You are really super funny!! Somehow I KNEW Tuesdays with Morrie was gonna be in there.

P.S. again congratulations on car crash survival, and your snail has an awesome looking shell (I have two pet snails too, eric & tim (or tim & eric))

Hey Raphaela,
I'm sorry It took me like 8 million years to respond to this message, I have been bad about checking comments and such. But I am really glad you liked the Kafka issue!

I ended up releasing my snail into the wild because My studio is really dry and I think my snail was not living his full snail life.

I wish I would have been able to make it out to the show you and your siblings were having. I hope it went well! Are you planning to do any conventions this spring? I'll probably be at mocca again but have yet to reserve my table.
