Dan Z has done it again! The mega-master of industrial art comics has given us a perfect blend of form and content in Tel-Tales. This pint-sized wonder is based on a story by Dan's dad, Don "Toots" Zettwoch that tells the tale of the good ol' days of telephone call switching that involved actual human beings – as well as the "ancient & mysterious 8-Board" – that existed before the days of fully automated digital switching, not to mention cell phones, FOIP and Skype, which are putting the entire infrastructure of plain old telephone calling into the dumpster. And that's just where the Bell System punched cards that are used here as the cover were likely headed before rescued by the Zettwoch Comics Co. and put to such perfect use. Tel-Tales is a one-of-a-kindpint-size powerhouse of a comic book. Just take our word for it: THIS is a comic book.
