The Rust Belt Review is an all new anthology, edited and published by Sean Knickerbocker, featuring comics from – yes, you guessed it – the rust belt, of which, of course, Pittsburgh was long a prominent component – but no more, as it has now, economically if not culturally, successfully transitioned to a biomedical/technology island island of prosperity amidst the sea of surrounding decline. Here in 72 big 9" x 12" pages, excellently printed by Bookmobile printers we have six great comics pieces by six regional artists: Andrew Greenstone, Caleb Orecchio, M.S. Harkness, Juan Fernandez and Audra Stang, as well as Knickerbocker himself (who also provided this issue's cover art). These works range far and wide, from the gritty urban SF of Andrew Greenstone, to Audra Stang's teen soap opera, from the philosophically reflective digital musings of Juan Fernandez to the apogean satire of M.S. Harkness, and from Caleb Orecchio's slapstick humor to Knickerbocker's rustbelt noir. An unexpected and rewarding mix. Check it out!
