It's been a While

It has been quite a while since I have posted anything here. I think it is high time that I return to posting some reviews and info about small press comics and zines.

What better way to start than by taking a look at Christoph Meyer's new issue of "28 Pages Lovingly Bound with Twine" from Big Red Mill Publishing Christoph Meyer PO Box 106 Danville, OH 43014.

The big surprise here is that Christoph, after winning the Utne Reader Independent Press award,

"Best Zine Ever" Just kind of shut down, and did nothing. He admits he was depressed. I have met Christoph a number of times, and just hard to picture him in a funk. But that is just what happened. For 2 years he says he did nothing but sit around and mope.

But that seems to have changed! In fact he has taken on a monumental challenge. Christoph is currently on the Appalachian Trail, planning to hike the entire trail all 2,175 miles of it from now until Oct 2008. Whew! That's awsome! I suggest you send for this zine and read how this all came about, if you have read any of Christoph's past zines, you know this will not disapoint. I would say it costs $2.00.

You can follow Christoph's travels at His trail name is Twineman. Leave a comment in his guest book Iam sure he will appreciate it.
