A copy of 'Big Funny' a full size newspaper comics section produced for the Altered Esthetics art gallery in Minneapolis arrived just before I left for vacation last week. I'll be reviewing it for this site, and IJOCA's print version, but here's more information from Editor and Publisher -
'The Big Funny' Set to Recapture Glory Days of Newspaper Comics, By E&P Staff, July 27, 2009. The exhibit that the booklet accompanies opens on August 7th and runs through the 29th.
The newspaper section is for sale for $5 each and at first glance, appears well worth it.
