JUST ENCASED Volume 1, $7, 5½” x 8½”, printed, 8 pgs.

This black and white mini-zine is a short comic featuring a hot dog narrator. It’s pretty cutesy in its subject matter and the talking hot dog is likable (for a hot dog, I guess?). I would wager this would do well as a children’s book, purchased by parents who like puns and tongue-in-cheek jokes. –Tricia Ramos (Just Encased, daniellesusi.com, [email protected])
