krazybov #4

   
52 pages, free, krazybov.com 
Don't be deceived by the cover - it looks like this thing could be pretty cool. In fact, it's the exact opposite of pretty cool.
The first warning sign appears on page two - a colour ad for some cliched-looking alien/superhero/whateverthefuck website-only comic turd called Wayward Sons. Then, an ad for a hipster nerd clothing company! (Aha! So that's how they can make this paper turd free.)
A brief word on the comics herein - they're all varying degrees of awfulness. It's painful to read them. And one of the artists' style is a complete rip-off of Frank Miller's. That's probably all you need to know right there.
Editor Bov calls his anthology "a platform for the next generation of comics creators". I say there are generations and there are generations. This generation is the Anti-Crumb.
But wait! There's more! Classifieds in the back, only two pounds fifty for 140 characters! Here's one: "Strong Lifts. A simple effective method to build muscle & lose fat while getting stronger." Here's another: "Rampage Network, for all your webcomic hosting needs."  Webcomics? Webcomics suck ass.
Idiots with no taste whatsoever can like 'krazybov' on facebook, follow it on twitter, or befriend it on myspace. Spoilt for choice, you lucky devils!

Wow, that all sounds kinda cringeworthy...

Did you get a table for the MCA fair, by the way? They said they'd add me to their mailing list last year after I emailed asking why they don't tell anyone tables are up for grabs. And of course I didn't get an email this year! I bet that table has gone to a craftster! *table flip*

Cringeworthy would be a compliment.
...
Yeah I got a table for the MCA zine fair this year, but didn't get an email from them - it was Chris Mikul who told me about it. He got one and forwarded me the application. It sucks ass you didn't get an email either. I should have posted about it on my blog, damnit. I suck.

The MCA obviously hates us both - how unfair! At least they cut it down to 2 tables per booking...

I got invited to do Free Comic Book Day at Kino (7th May), which is a pretty sweet deal. XD I'll try to drop by on the 22nd and see you though!

In the application they asked for copies of one's comix/zines so I kind of figured there was a good chance I would be rejected. Part of me hoped they would. Haw! But holy shit I got in. What is the world coming to when such depravity gets invited to hang out at these bastions of High Culture: the NGA and MCA? Has the world turned upside-down?
I'd love to drop into the Kinokuniya comic day too. Gotta put it in my diary! I haven't been to one of those.
