It’s payday and what better way to celebrate than by pre-ordering the ninth issue of the ever essential and popular small press anthology Dirty Rotten Comics from Throwaway Press?
For our customary preview (and cover reveal!) of DRC #9 I’ve concentrated mainly on some of the newer names appearing in this 50-plus page issue underlining my recent comments in my review of Dirty Rotten Comics #8 about the book’s important role in bringing fresh voices to a wider readership. The diversity of approaches to the form in this edition is particularly noteworthy and there are creators herein who I suspect we will be hearing a lot more from in the near future.
Don’t forget you can pre-order the book from the Throwaway Press online store here priced just £4.00. With artists like Julian Hanshaw, Matthew Dooley, Jenny Robins, Alex Hahn, Henry Miller, Kathryn Briggs and so many more involved you know this one is a must-buy.
