Small press galleries update

Most of my A5 small press comics collection is now completed and covers are available to view in four galleries. A special gallery devoted to the works released under the Help!Shark imprint is in preparation.

Today, started the gallery of A4 size comics; titles starting A-B are now represented. For American readers, maybe I should explain that A4 size is slightly wider than 8″ and slightly less tall than 12″; it’s about the closest we got to a magazine size format in the UK. Small press publishers found they could feed A3 paper into a photocopier and produce backed copies, if they were lucky.

I will also mention here that I added some photographs to the website earlier this month. We think they were taken around 1987 or 1988 and show the Fast Fiction / Escape artists meeting up, going to the comic mart at Westminster City Hall, convening at a conference, or just hanging out.
