Copy This! #19

Yes, that’s Roberta Gregory’s Bitchy “gracing” the cover of D. Blake Wert’s latest edition of Copy This!—now serving #19. The issue includes several recollections of the recently deceased, Tim Corrigan, venerable small presser, by Blake, Bruce Chrislip, Bob Corby, Rob Imes, Larned Justin and Mike Tuz.

Brad Foster’s gag cartoon helps transition the mood from somber, as we turn the page to the interview with the remarkable Roberta Gregory, that runs twenty-one pages including lots of cover images.

Blake wraps things up with news from Michael Neno, Charles Brubaker, Carrie McNinch, Brian John Mitchell, Clifton Carroll, Andy Nukes, Brian Leonard and Pukka Joint Massif.

The back is a collage of a few of Tim Corrigan’s mini comix, dominated by his long-running TC’s Comics and Stories.

And I was delighted to see this issue’s bonus mini comix was by my pal, DC McNamara! Great to see new comix from you, DC!
