The G.M.I.W.C.C. In The Beginning: Comics From the First Five Years

We have a brand new book! This book collects a selection of our mail order comics and gag cartoons from our first five years! We're releasing it one week from tomorrow at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. Lucky for you we're also offering discounted pre-orders, they are available RIGHT NOW at: http://www.greatmomentsinwesternciv.bigcartel.com

Watch a preview video below:

We are super psyched about how they turned out. We did our best to preserve the integrity of our original hand crafted mail order periodical. This here is a book of objects as much as it is a book of comics. All first edition copies ordered directly from us come complete with a screenprinted bookmark listing errata!

Volume 4, Issue 2 of the Postal Constituent: the GMIWCC considers the TEXT.

Volume 4 Issue 2 of the Great Moments in Western Civilization Postal Constituent is here! For this issue the Cooperative considers The TEXT and the anxiety it induces. With a healthy mix of autobio and history this comic is a return to a style similiar to some older autobiographical issues like Relics and Phosphenes. I had a lot of fun making it, so I'm thinking I might make some more in this style. Maybe I'll even make a book of them. But then, I always want to make every project I do into a magnum opus. Only time will tell. 

The Text is an eight page zine folded from an 11 x 17 in sheet of paper and printed in Blue. Check out this preview below. Click to Enlarge.

And Here's a larger version of the first two pages because I realized it was too small to see in the original preview.

Lots of excitement on the horizon. Just got my anthology proofs and will be making the official preview/ announcement post as soon as I get this new issue out in the mail. The Toronto Comics Arts Festival is also NEXT weekend! I will be there with my new book in hand!
