LOSERS WEEPERS #3: $5, Offset, 6 ¾” x 7 ¼”

Jan 15, 2013

The premise: J.T. Yost makes a comic with a story inspired by found materials, which he collages into the comic.In this issue, we have a misspelled language lessons flyer, a sorta-sexy letter from jail, and a cryptic note found on an art store’s pen testing pad.The result is a shaggy dog story about the downfall of a struggling language instructor whose home life is sent into a tailspin by a letter from jail. Clear, expressive art drives the whole thing home and the final product is in that gray area between zine and indie comic. –Chris Terry (Birdcage Bottom Books, 324-A West 71st St., NY, NY 10023, birdcagebottombooks.com)
