Publish Your Own 8-Page Mini Comic!!
I finally went over to Marek's website and the man doesn't look anything like what I figured. Not that anybody ever does when you see their work before you see the person, but I half expected a being of pure light and goodness, and he looks like a regular guy to me. Odd. This is, obviously, a how-to book when it comes to making mini comic. I had a different method back in the day (yes, I once made comics. No, they will never see the light of day), but this one works just fine. Marek has a whole line of these little things, all basically touting the general awesomeness of mini comics, and more power to him. Spend about $5, get the lot of these for the artistic kid in your life, or just get this one if you want to know a simple, practical way to put one of these things together. If you're looking for death and destruction, you'll probably want to wander off to other pages on this website…
Geez, what is a reviewer supposed to do with this? This is a short, utterly adorable comic that shows a few reasons why comics are a force for good in this world: the fact that everybody can make them, that the possibilities are limitless, that they challenge us, that they're cheap to publish, and finally just because they're fun! I'm far too jaded of a human being to be reached by this, but it's also too utterly pure and good for me to make fun of in good conscience. This is meant for all ages, and it's meant to inspire kids to make comics. I don't see any reason why it can't do just that, as long as it reaches the right hands. In the hands of the jaded, this could be a terrible force for evil in the world. Give it to the kids and keep your cynicism to yourself! No price, but I'm guessing it costs approximately one moonbeam or one sleeping puppy, or possibly $1.
