Another Comix Reader review

Stumbled across another review.  This one is from

Comix Reader #3 by various - 5/5

The third issue of Richard Cowdry's Comix Reader anthology is another great comic, printed on newsprint at tabloid newspaper size and with the awesome cover price of £1. It has a lovely cover by Eliott Baggott, and a great mix of pages from small press & indie creators. Cowdry's Fat Charlie Chaplin is great, with a sense of humour that fans of his Bedsit Diaries series will recognize. Elliot Baggott follows up his lovely cover with a great joke about Johannes Guthenberg, inventor of printed movable type. Maartje Schalkx has a minimalist page that works in an impressionist suggestive way. Tanya Meditzky & Tobias Tak provide a great two page comic about a walking tree who wants a makeover. Steve Tillotson of Banal Pig gives us a glorious "gradual reveal" page where each panel in an enormous grid reveals a bit more of a larger scene. Steve Ward's Invisual Arts is a gorgeous-looking darkly-comic page, and Lord Hurk's back cover comic "Lonely Bomb" is fantastic. And that's just 8 of the 20-odd pages in there. It's great. Check it out.
