The Olneyville Library in Providence, Rhode Island, is trying to expand its local comics/art books/zine collection, so that the public can have access to these rare local gems.
We are in the process of compiling the 5th (FIFTH!) Issue of Not Your Mother's Meatloaf, Sex Education Comic Book Project. This Issue's theme is AGE.
Some of you remember that I used to write a zine called Suburban Blight, in which readers were subjected to political ramblings from yours truly. Well, here we are, 4 years since my last issue, and I’ve decided to return from my hiatus!
I know what you’re thinking – finally, reason to live again! Yes, my loyal fans, the time has come. You’ve weathered bloody wars, worldwide economic collapse, and three seasons of Jersey Shore. Surely, you deserve something nice.
That said, I would love to include contributions from YOU, my smart and sassy friends. Click "more" to see submission guidelines, which are quite lax. You’ll notice there is no deadline. I’m just getting started on this and really have no idea when it will be ready. If you’re interested in submitting get in touch with me and we’ll go from there.
