If you're interested in finding the largest selection of the best of the small press/newave/mini-comic art creators, you could do worse than check out this anthology mini-series. Dozens and dozens of some of the most creative writers and artists around have contributed stories, comics, artwork, and some downright undefinable pieces to every issue. I started this one out simple, your basic 8-page mini comic in black and white. But as I came upon more and more great artists I wanted to put into print, I quickly moved up to 32 page issues, and even started experimenting with some second color runs. Later issues moved to 20 pages each, but there are still 420 pages of great material contained in all these little books. Get one or get them all, you can't go wrong!

~ The STUFF Collection ~
Stuff #1
Stuff #1
( 8 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w )  75¢   To Order Form

   The big (okay, small ) premiere issue! Strips are "Monday Morning" by Mark Martin, "Bedtime Story" by S. Ruth Jones, and "Brautigan Split So Long" by Steve Willis. Then there are toons and art from Daryl Hutchinson and David Miller (whom I embarrassingly referred to as "David Martin" in the issue–sorry DM!) Plus the first of many covers and logo designs by Brad Foster.

Stuff #2
Stuff #2
( 12 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w )  75¢   To Order Form

   The major part of this issue is the long strip "Tasty Pioneer" by Joe Hutchinson, a weird tale (as if anything in this anthology isn't weird?) of time travel gone terribly wrong. His brother Daryl Hutchinson has an odd little illo included, plus Mark Martin contributes another "Monday Morning" strip, and I get David Miller's name right this time for his back cover 'toon. Oh, and I do another front cover.

Stuff #3
Stuff #3
( 8 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w )  75¢   To Order Form

   Jeff Nicholson of "Ultra Klutz" and "Through the Habitrails" fame gives us the tale of "The P.O.B. Society", a whole group of small press artists who end up living in their post office box to be able to devote their lives more fully to small press comics. Mark Martin is back with "Monday Morning", and Daryl Hutchinson is back with more weird art. T.K. Atherton has his first cartoon contribution, and Foster does a wild cover dance.

Stuff #4
Stuff #4
( 12 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w )  75¢   To Order Form

   There's a new "Monday Morning" from Mark Martin (does this guy ever run out of ideas?), a bug-eyed weirdo from one of the kings of weirdo art, Jeff Gaither, and another 'toon from T.K. Atherton. Bill Fitts does the simple strip "Going Bye-Bye"over six pages, then Foster does a "cute" analysis of the strip that packs more words in one page than were contained in the entire strip. Oh, and I use up some old Zip-a-tone sheets on the cover art. (Don't know what Zip-a-tone is? It's something us old artists used back in the pre-Photoshop days. I recall it was made from the hides of dinosaurs....)

Stuff #5
Stuff #5
( 8 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w )  75¢   To Order Form

   This was one of my favorite cover designs, plus there is a killer centerspread illo of a Lovecraftian creature by Daryl Hutchinson. Amazingly I talked Mark Martin into sending me another "Monday Morning" strip, and new contributor Casey Shaw does the strip "Wordz and Pickchures", a lament for all the poor, misunderstood cartoonists all over the world today. Plus I get greedy and run two more of my own pieces this issue. It's good to be editor!

Stuff #6
Stuff #6
( 32 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $2.00   To Order Form

   After doing the first five issues in only two months, I took a break and a year later was back with the first thick issue, and experimenting with adding a second color run on the covers, and two select interior pages. Needed the extra space to run T.K. Atherton's wonderful "Docto Decimo" strip, plus my first strips from Steve Willis, Jim Thompson, Clark Dissmeyer and Doug Holverson. Several pages of "Fry Street Fred" strips by Casey Shaw, and Mark Martin leaves Monday behind with a strip on the evolution of the telephone. David Miller also has a multi-panel contribution, and with all the extra space, I pack in more 'toons and art from Steve Fox, Doug Potter, Michael Roden, Daryl Hutchinson, and S. Ruth Jones.

Stuff #7
Stuff #7
( 32 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $2.00   To Order Form

   More graphic experimentation with my first wrap-around cover, and a cool four-page graphic opening from artist Taral Wayne. The strip "Mystery of the Doughnuts" is Dave Tosh turning industrial-age clipart into newave art. There are notes and sketches for Doug Potter's "Intergalactic Traveling Salesman", and the obsessively-stippled strip "Slideshow" by Bob Corby. More strips come from those depressed-but-brilliant twins, Steve Willis and Clark Dissmeyer , and there are tiny letters collected by T.K. Atherton. Filling in between all of that is stuff from Steve Fox, Daryl Hutchinson and Tim Corrigan. Oh, and that Brad Foster guy, too.

Stuff #8
Stuff #8
( 32 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $2.00   To Order Form

   With both the five page strip "Zeb and Jeb" and two-pager "Super(arty)ficial" from Steve Willis, an untitled two-pager from Ted Bolman, a hugely detailed centerspread of "The Alien Digestive Tract Game" from John Howard, and the first two "Howie the Hat" strips from Wayne Honath, what more could you want? Fine, then I'll toss in strips from T.K. Atherton, Casey Shaw, Robin Ator, and Donnie Jupiter. And the first text piece from the ever-inventive T.S. Child, specially illustrated by Doug Potter, and then still more artwork from Jim Thompson, Tod Rush, Brad Foster and Steve Fox. And hey, check it out, I finally gave up on hogging the cover all to myself, and ran a cool Mark Martin illo. (Which I had fun coloring!)

Stuff #9
Stuff #9
( 32 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $2.00   To Order Form

   The jigsaw-faced guy from Wayne Honath was so cool, I had to give him the color cover placement! After that it was fill in the rest with a ton of new strips from old and new contributors like John MacLeod, Steve Willis, David Miller, Honath again, Dennis Stahl, and Hal Weaver. And Doug Potter's first "Intergalactic Traveling Salesman" strip premieres, plus I run the first six pages of Ted Bolman's "Soonday Moonday" illustrated alphabet. Mark Martin does a wonderfully prescient portrait of the editor, there's another short text feature from T.S. Child, and more art from Steve Fox, Jeff Gaither, Daryl Hutchinson, Vicki Ogden and T.K. Atherton.

Stuff #10
Stuff #10
( 32 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $2.00   To Order Form

   Mark Martin is back on the cover with one of my favorites pieces in this series. Inside are the next five pages of "Soonday Moonday" from Ted Bolman,and a new Doug Potter "Intergalactic Traveling Salesman". You get two Steve Willis strips, Erik Weems takes us to the "Cordial Lounge", plus T.K. Atherton and Clark Dissmeyer take on religion in their own off-center ways. There are 'toons and art from Jim Thompson, Lee Burks, Jeff Gaither, Daryl Hutchinson, David Miller, Wayne Honath, and Brad Foster. Plus text pieces from both T.S. Child and Izzy Sealis. But the killer item this time out is the strip "You're Young, It's Dark, Your Bladder's Full" by Jesus' (Stinkey) Boner-Whoowhoowhoo, and his evil assistant Colin Upton. I love it!

Stuff #11
Stuff #11
( 32 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $2.00   To Order Form

   We feature a Steve Fox alien-architecture piece on the cover this issue. In the middle is another too-tiny-to-play-but-really-fun-to-read game from John Howard. There are two long Steve Willis strips, and David Miller and Clark Dissmeyer team up on a strip to tell the story of "Bossy the Bovine Revolutionary". And look, stillmore new strips from Wayne Honath, T.K. Atherton and Casey Shaw! A short story from Denver Tucson is illustrated by Dave Tosh, and the next installment of Ted Bolman's alphabet series is printed, though in the wrong order. Mix in a couple more illos from Brad Foster, Mark Martin, and Taral Wayne, and this issue is full!

Stuff #12
Stuff #12
( 20 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $1.50   To Order Form

   This issue Daryl Hutchinson gets his art on the cover, and is covered by color from Foster. There's also the longest single contribution yet from Mark Martin, his "Stufficial Field Guide to Exotic Birdies." Then there are short but sweet pieces from all your faves like Ted Bolman ("Ode to an Oat"), Steve Willis ("Words Words Words"), David Miller ("Bob Goblin") and Wayne Honath ("Mini Man"). Follow this up with more bizarre fiction by newcomer Tim Athan, illustrated by newcomer Quinton Hoover. There's a great alien landscape centerspread by pen & ink master Steve Fox, and the first of "Tootles" by Ken Struck.

Stuff #13
Stuff #13
( 20 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $1.50   To Order Form

   One of Jim Thompson's big-eyed beauties graces the cover this time out, and we get back on track with the penultimate installment of "Soonday Moonday" from Ted Bolman. More art and 'toons by Daryl Hutchinson, Brad Foster, and David Miller. Quinton Hoover returns with a short strip, and Casey Shaw revisits "Fry Street Fred". T.S. Child relates an odd adventure of "Hugo Calvities, Soon-to-be-Famous Bald Detective", with illo by Dave Tosh. And Wayne Honath wraps it all up with the great strip "Baby Godzilla: The Untold Story".

Stuff #14
Stuff #14
( 20 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $1.50   To Order Form

   There's new "Bob Goblin" from David Miller, "Mini Man" from Wayne Honath, and "Tootles" from Ken Struck. I find an undiscovered Escher piece for the centerspread. (Really? What do you think?), run a great Mark Martin armadillo illo, and wrap up Ted Bolman's "Soonday Moonday" alphabet series. Plus you get three Steve Willis strips: two for fun, and then one of my faves: "Fundamentalcase Follies". How could you ask for more?

Stuff #15
Stuff #15
( 20 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $1.50   To Order Form

   I love listing all these titles! "Real Life Dough-Boy!" by Steve Willis, "Chester the Dog in The Death of Vaudeville!" by Brad Foster, "Tootles (..Going to the Disco!)" by Ken Struck, "Kevin Komiks presents Praise Kevin" by T.K. Atherton, "Dallas the Cat Financier" by Taral Wayne, "Henry 'Hat' Patterson Visits the Men's Room" and "A Festive Desperation Funny Starring Mr. Dry-Roasted-Vacuum-Packed Urban Sophisticate", both by Wayne Honath, and "Belligerent funnies" by Brad Foster, again. Toss in art by Daryl Hutchinson and Mark David Dietz, a kind-of-an IQ Test by T.S. Child, and put it all under a nifty Mark Martin cover and, well, it's done!

Stuff #16
Stuff #16
( 20 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $1.50   To Order Form

    T.S. Child returns with a new tale of "Hugo Calvities, Soon-to-be-Famous Bald Detecive", with portrait provided by Kyle Miller. Steve Willis presents "21 Uses for Your College Diploma", while Wayne Honath's "Mini Man" gets a radical new look. Jim Thompson takes a red-tinted look at "Angst Ridden Funnies", and T.K. Atherton has a poignant look at "The Loneliness of the Non-Dairy Creamer". Ken Struck abandons Tootles this time for the single-page mystery of "Herb Fisheye", while Mark Martin serves up a tribute page to great comic book animals, and new contributors Dave Baldinger and Robert Bostick join in the fun. Oh yeah, and Quinton Hoover shows us what happens when a cat has "Too Much T.V.".

Stuff #17
Stuff #17
( 20 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $1.50   To Order Form

   Since this was published in August, I went for a sunny yellow color scheme on that Mark Martin cover. We've got a couple of favorites back this issue, with another "Intergalactic Traveling Salesman" by Doug Potter, a "Mini-Man" by Wayne Honath, and several pages of the adventures of David Miller's "Bob Goblin". Colin Upton gives us a new encounter of "Happy Ned" and an unsuspecting unbeliever, then also illustrates our shortest bit of fiction yet, written by Jeffrey Kingman. There are a few too many cartoons and drawings by editor Foster this issue, but that's balanced by a nifty back cover 'toon from J.P. Morgan, and the hilarious strip "Paranoid Man: A Hero for These Troubled Times" courtesy of Bob Supina.

Stuff #18
Stuff #18
( 20 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $1.50   To Order Form

   Every time I think I can't get an odder collection of fun together, I manage to find just the right things! Scott Nickel raises the question of Keith Richards relationship to Boris Karloff. Taral Wayne does a "Jaws: Redux". Wayne Honath shows how olive loaf on Wonder Bread is only part of a balanced breakfast. Bill Fitts cat-guy comes up with an unfortunate malady. Daryl Hutchinson explains why inter-species marriage is often frowned upon. Steve Willis compares views from the east and west coasts. T. Motley finds he simply can't find it. T.K. Atherton tugs at your heart strings to try to dig into your pocket. T.S. Child fully explains all you need to know to write an article. Denver Tucson looks at a prom that never should have been. And the cover boy by Gary Fields is a cousin of Flash Gordon who never, for some reason, gets much press.

Stuff #19
Stuff #19
( 20 pgs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", b&w with 2nd color on 4 pgs )  $1.50   To Order Form

   After playing with thirteen different second-color runs, I thought a real design challenge would be to try to use gray as a color, and Wayne Honath's shopper seemed the perfect subject for that downer tone. This issue Mike Morrison reveals the secret of pay phones, Scott Nickel busts our cherished myths, and Steve Willis wonders "Vegetarians, Who Needs 'em, Huh?". Ken Struck and Wayne Honath bring back both "Tootles" and "Howie the Hat", T. Motley presents probably the most weirdly surreal centerspread we've had yet, and T.S.Child has Gary Fields on hand to illustrate "The Unexpected Quiz". There's more art from Doug Potter, T.K. Atherton, and even me (big surprise!). But the page I'm most proud of is the first published science fiction art of Natalie Norman, my niece. Sure, she was only eight when she drew this, but she's a Doctor now, so show a little respect!

Issue #20: Sold Out
