COMIX NEWS:

"BubbleGun 3"
Scott McCloud wasn't kidding 20 years ago, when he said computers would shrink the world, (or something like that. Here's proof. This latest little gem comes from the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and the third issue devoted to female cartoonists. It's all in Czech, but you can "read the art" very easily. I let them print a three page story about the great singer/comedian, Rusty Warren, that was written by Soozie the Floozie and illustrated by me several years ago but was never published.
Other contributors include Trina Robbins, Jennifer Camper, Aza, Bara Jilkova, Jaroslava Dejlova, Erika Grendelova, Elke R. Steiner, Ina Korneliussen, Nancy Pena, Melissa MacAlpin, Aneta Bendakova, Margreet de Heer and Jaroslava Kocova. For more info: (only in Czech language)

Click on the image of the cover, and you can see pictures of the publishers celebrating the release of this issue and baptizing it with...milk!
Here's the original version in English.
