This 16 page risograph magazine edited by Blaise Larmee -- with Jake Terrell lending a helping hand -- is completely devoted to interviews with women comics creators in their 20s who live(d) and/or work(ed) in the NYC area: Aidan Koch, Lala Albert, Leah Wishnia, Sab and Nou, who drew the cover for this issue. Each of the interviews is illustrated, both with drawings by and photos of (most of) the creators. Eschewing the standard physical magazine format, this issue is simply 8 sheets of heavy, white 7 1/2" x 10" paper, printed in blue on both sides (with red added on the front cover sheet) with a single staple through the top left corner. Laid back in approach, this little mag nevertheless yields some engaging results.
We've been sellling this in the shop for awhile, but only recently realized that we had neglected to list it here. Easily rectified! Happiness #5 is the fifth installment of Leah Wishnia's exploratory comics anthology. With this, the fifth issue, Leah has teamed up with Perfectly Acceptable Press to produce a full color risograph edition that is unquestionably the most sumptuous issue yet! The unifying theme for this issue is... alchemy! Check out the contributor list: Aidan Koch, Andrea Lukic, Anya Davidson, Barkev Gulesserian, Brie Moreno, Carlos Gonzalez, Char Esme, Daria Tessler, Daryl Seitchik, Disa Wallander, Faye Coral Johnson, Jack Reese, Juli Majer, Juliana Neufeld, Kendra Yee, Lauren Poor, Maren Jensen, Matthew Thurber, Mike S. Redmond, Nick Norman, Roya Haroun, Sam Ryser, Sarah Lammer & Tara Booth. Screenprinted cover by Leif Goldberg!
