Written, drawn, printed, collated, folded, and stapled the DIY way: self-published and self-distributed mini comics revolutionized the medium. A subculture that thrives and depends on selling and trading these handcrafted booklets, there are no barriers of entry, no profiteering, and no cookie-cutter normalcy; the only limits are what the hand can draw. For more than 40 years, these tiny tomes have been fueling the alternative comics scene, and the Treasury of Mini Comics Volume 2 continues the historical survey of the world’s smallest comics from some of today’s biggest names.
