If you donate $50 or more, we will give you a thank you package which will include a WEEKEND PASS to PLAN-IT-X FEST (june 19-22) if you can make it !
Look what is finally out! You can order it through me and paypal (rick(at)1919hemphill.org) for $8 (or $9 if you feel like being a pal about shipping) or you can order it through Plan-It-X Records.
You can also send $8-$9 in your favorite form of currency (check / money order / concealed cash) to Rick V. /213 S. Clark St. / Bloomington IN / 47408
This is a collection of my old diary comic zines from 2003 and beyond. The comics are cleaned up a little, there are some new wrap arounds and a bonus zine I never put out with comics about drinking booze. It’s about 100 pages and in my opinion, very funny. But don’t take my word for it!
The best autobiographical comics are those in which the author’s personality comes through on the page. Rick accomplishes this feat with apparent ease. But, more than that is the fact that, in real life, Rick is just a super awesome guy. Funny, fun to be around… And so his comics are similarly funny and fun to read. The vast majority of autobiographical comics are so maudlin and dry (mine included, I suppose), it’s refreshing to read someone with such an upbeat attitude and a strong sense of humor relay stories from his life through comics. This books is great, and very fun. -Mitch Clem (My Stupid Life, As You Were, Nothing Nice To Say)
