Oh My! Comix #2

28 pages, digest size, $4.00, edited by Dexter Cockburn - thecomixcompany.ecrater.com
Dexter has turned his new comix series into an anthology with issue 2 - contributors include Robin Bougie, Dexter Cockburn, Kayla Escobedo, Hugo, JB, and Aaron Lange.
First of all I gotta say how great the 'contributor notes' page is, done in the style of those old comics ad pages for X-Ray Specs and Sea Monkeys.
Dexter's whipped up another Adventure Club story, this one involving filthy pirates! There's six pages of "durdee drawin's" by Robin Bougie; then the porky shenanigans are put on hold for a coupla strips by Kayla Escobedo (a big discovery for me) and a two-pager by JB of some extremely twisted dream drawn in an even more twisted art (reminded me of King Terry's "bad-good" [heta-uma] manga style) ... (JB, another big discovery!) Then some more Dexter stuff I can't tell you about. ... Then a superultramega disturbing/creepy strip - 'Lil' Baby Teef' - I think this one is by JB too (the strip is unsigned, consarn it!)
Then a two-pager by Hugh 'Shug' Raine ('A God Awful Small Affair'). Man, I never heard of him either! Where are all these badass comix dudes coming from?! Anyway, this one is supercute! And romantic!
The back (colour) cover strip is by yet another comix honcho new to me - Aaron Lange - it's a very funny snapshot of sex in the '70s, '80s and '90s.
This anthology fucking rocks. It's totally bitchin' and boss. Get it.
