What we have here is a very nicely produced, full color, perfectbound comics anthology out of Cleveland, OH that features work by midwest creators, many of whom will be familiar to anyone who has attended PIX and/or the Pittsburgh Zine Fair: Kevin and Matt Czapiewski; Liz Suburbia; Alex Martin; Brandon B; Cherry Au; Eric Kubli; Jessi Zabarsky; Jory Griffis; Katherine Verhoeven; Keith Pakiz; L. Nichols; Liz Valasco; Mandy Sampson; and Niki Smith. As much as we like this anthology, we have to go on record as being mystified by the choice of cover art, as not only is it the opposite of eye-catching, it does not represent the contents well either. So, our advice is: Please ignore the cover. There's a lot of nice work showcased here, much of which can be previewed on the editor's Tumblr. Definitely worth a look.
Now here's an 80-Page Giant we can get behind! Füt Chi Perf (or is it Fütchi Perf?) is 80 pages of lushly rendered duo-tone -- pink and blue! -- risographed comics from the pen and publishing appuratus of Kevin Czapiewski (aka Kevin Czap). To learn more, read this review by Eleanor Davis (!) on TCJ.com and become enlightened.
GONE! Sorry... BUT – it has now been released in a permanent, squarebound, library-friendly graphic novel format by Uncivilized Books.
Fütchi Perf is back in print! The Uncivilized Books edition of provides a permanent squrabound, shelf-friendly edition to succeed this risograph instant classic.
Temporarily out of stock. More on the way, please check back.
