Thanks to my friend Mark Sunshine, I recently had a comic published in the POOD comics anthology. Edited by Geoff Grogan, Kevin Mutch, and Alex Rader, POOD is a 16 page, full color/black & white, broadsheet size (17" x 23") comic printed on newsprint. Here's an image of the cover--the comic is by Sara Edward Corbett:
My story is called "Giraffe Trapping Music" and is about the adventures of "Robot Hippo" a crime fighting mini-robot hippopotamus:

Garo is a highly regarded underground avant-garde comics journal from Japan. In this show, you can see many issues of Garo, from its first issue in September 1964 to its 120th issue in December 1973. Amazing variety of styles and subject matter. Super inspiring. The top images are from a post about this exhibit from the way cool Same Hat! blog. Photography by Noel.
Spent some time surfing around Same Hat! and found some links to manga by Maki Sasaki, (well known Garo contributor who's also featured in the Garo Manga exhibit)
Below are images from "Desert Eyeball" 1970, and "A Dream To Have In Heaven", 1967. Click on the story title to see full stories (big scans!).
