Yep, we're moving the day AND the pub! The next Alternative/Underground Comix meeting is Tues 4th October at THE MILLER near London Bridge.
So that's TUESDAY October 4, 8ish until closing at The Miller Pub, 96 Snowfields, London Bridge.
The Crown was cool when we could sit upstairs, because there was lots of room & and it was easy to circulate and talk to everyone. But now they keep closing that part of the pub at 9pm... and if we're sitting in the regular bar downstairs it just ain't so spacious.
So our monthly get together for Comix Kids picks itself up, blows the dust off, and hops a freight train to London Bridge, from where it's but a short walk to The Miller.
So do come along.... it's a chance to chat with people like yourself who dig alternative & underground comix. Bring some comics or art to talk about if you like, or just sit in the corner hunched over your latest obscure comix finds.
Also, it should go without saying that these meetings are a bullshit free zone, with zero tolerance for any kind of abuse. Cool people only!

There is a really entertaining all Harold Gray/Orphan Annie edition of Brian Cronin's Comic Book Legends Revealed over on comicbookresources.com. Did Gray have Daddy Warbucks kill himself rather than to live through another Presidential term of Franklin Delano Roosevelt? Find out!

Richard Sala's original art for his story in Kramer's Ergot #7
(and an example of how photoshop's potential to make minute corrections to artwork can get out of hand!)

Here are some strips from the great Dennis Worden (which I nabbed from www.comicartcollective.com). Along with Kaz, Pete Bagge, Drew Friedman, Charles Burns, J.D.King, Chester Brown, Richard Sala, Glenn Head, etc, Worden was one of the many great cartoonists who got started in the early 80's. This was the first big wave of comix talent to come through since the original underground comix explosion of the late sixties. They were comics' punk generation, and the vitality and creativity of those times shines through the work.
