Claptrap #2 by Onsmith
Old pal Onsmith sent me a copy of his new mini-comic, Claptrap #2, got it on Friday. If you can get your hands on one you will be impressed. People just don't make mini-comics like this anymore, or if they attempt it they fail in comparison. Production value is off the chart with a nice two color silkscreen cover (I already got a spot of coffee or something on mine, unfortunately--goodbye collectible value), and he must've found the cleanest photocopier drum in town to do the guts of the comic; nice dense black, hi-res scans.
The quality of the cartooning in here is the usual grade of wonderful. Dirty gags, confounding doodles, comments on the miserable human condition--all in all a load of laffs. Also a color centerfold, and mine has an original small drawing taped in the back cover. Try to find a copy if you're near Chicago.
Anyhow, he's a good buddy of mine from way back, and it was real nice of him to send me one of these. It's nice to know I have such friends out there.
