BB Bluesbird

8 pages, digest
black & white on off-white card stock
$1.00 each

BB Bluesbird is a creation of artist Ron Hill, and is now a collaboration between him and Gary Dumm, (of Harvey Pekar's American Splendor.)

Bluesbird has a vintage feel to it, both in style and subject. It pays homage to the old blues players and the early rock and rollers who where trying so hard to be like them, Clapton, The Stones, etc. BB Bluesbird is a hustler with a guitar on the road trying to bet paid.

I have two small volumes I picked up at the MOCA Cleveland Zine Exhibit in August 2015. One (Rock, Paper, Scissors,) is an actual comic, the other (Moleskin,) a collection of 2 to 4 frame stand alone pieces. These are early works of Ron Hill's. Pictured above.

For the early black and white issues email Ron for his address and postage.

Also, the collaborated 28 page, mainly full color, full size comics Ron Hill and Gary Dumm collaborated on are available for $6 + postage.
