Hard like Steel 5ps - this weeks strip

detail - key moments in the history of small press comics

This week's strip is a first bash at an idea that came back from filling in some questions sent me by someone writing a history of the UK Small Press Comics Scene. She asked "What do you think are the key events in small press history?" Instantly, I thought of William Blake. And then of how asking about important figures, key dates, significant works is not what the small press is about. And wrote this. The people in the panels aren't anyone in particular, just people, making comics.


In other news, yay! Thanks to your efforts, almost all of the cake-topper chicks now know who they are.

Hah!

I was thinking there needs to be more about UK small press on Wikipedia btw.

Actually, I just checked again, and it looks much fuller than when I last looked.

The printing press + illustrative writing, I suppose. And SUBVERSIVENESS. That's very interesting.

Working the night shift glancing admiring a tea-stained Davy Francis Ciderman. Photocopying and collating and stapling with wine and pizza breaks.
The monthly two hour shift at the commuity centre office, rush before deadline
Stan Lee never told me there'd be days like that.
