Ep. 56: Comics The Size Of Matchbooks??


​​

Ok, so whats the first thing you think of when you hear the word "comic book"? I think it's safe to say "matchbook" is the furthest thing in mind that would come up. I would hope so, I mean who puts matchbooks and comics together? Maybe a crazy mother that doesn't want her kid reading them??

Ok, so I kinda went off topic there, but the two things DO have something in common. This week we talked with Brian John Mitchell, the creator of Comics the Size of Matchbooks. Seriously, look at the picture above! That's no mannequin, its an action figure! Brian came up with the idea about 10 years ago, and now has about about 100 different comics completed. They are pretty much the standard 32 page comics, and come in their own little bag (us super nerds love bagged books). The couple we got to read were pretty darn good! Each page is one panel and the art is done really well. You can subscribe for physcial prints with pricing at 10 books for $10 or subscribe for digital books at $10 for 20 books. Awesome deal either way you go. Shoot on over to his , you can try out the first issues for free, just to get the feel of which series you might want to follow. Highly recommended!
