The Entertainment, Literature & Biography department just received a newly cataloged batch of zines and minicomics. Here are a few that stand out:
With the addition of Floating Head volumes 3 and 4 to the shelves, you'll be able to read the project in its entirety. The brainchild of St. Louis artists Mike McCubbins and Matt Bryan, Floating Head is a collection of sci-fi comics and illustrations of various sizes and formats that come together in 4 separate issues. The various printing and binding techniques make the series a tactile gem-- you'll want to get your hands on these.
Wakeling is a wordless, beautifully illustrated comic about a coven of women led through the forest by a fox to their 'ultimate transformation.'
Check out the ode to the Flamin' Hot Cheeto,We Are Made One With What We Touch and See. Photos, illustrations, lyrics and reviews come together to make this hilarious homage to America's favorite snack.
Dream Whip is a multi-year project of filmmaker, photographer and author, Bill Brown. According to Brown, issues 1-10 (all bound together) contain "over 5 years of late night walks, bad coffee, and lots of pointless driving around." The series is mostly comprised of mini narratives, some with illustrations, and the random photocopied photograph, news clipping or other media can be found throughout.
Learn to make a D&D character with An Adventurer Is You! Kristal Feldt, employee at Central Library (and Dungeon's & Dragons@The Library point person), created step-by-step instructions on how to build your very own D&D human, dwarf, haffling, orc, half orc, or other race for this RPG.
