Mini/ 7 pages / 1 stamp / From Jerry Smith 3344 Horner Dr. Morristown, TN 37814

This is a minimalist comic from Jerry featuring some "everyman" conversations. If you are married with kids that are around the teenage years, then you have had these exact conversations. If you draw small press comics, it will surely remind you of past conversations.
The art is minimal to say the least, but had this been done by some of the better known experimental cartoonists like the Fort Thunder guys, it would be hailed as a masterpiece.
My criteria for minimalist comics is knowing whether or not the artist can draw a standard type comic or not. Of course Jerry can, and has proved it over many years. The comic is certainly worth a stamp, and if you collect small press comics, you should by all means have it in your collection.
