...featuring the comics of Colin Upton.
In other news, Dave's computer died. :(

Dave never seemed to believe that computers are tools that wear out, just like pencils, nibs, and brushes. Good for him for sticking with the "experiment" as long as his luddite heart could stand. And good to hear the "Weekly Update" videos will continue. One-way communication suits Dave more anyway.

I love Colin Upton! I still have my minicomics issues of Self-Indulgent Comics and Famous Bus Rides that I purchased back in the late 1980s -- slice-of-life stuff before the auto-bio-comics boom. He's been at this a long time! Good for him for being so prolific and sticking with it.

Damn. I'm sending Colin some money soon - last time I bought anything by him, he was still being published by (gasp) Fantagraphics. Loooong, long time ago, folks! Colin rules!

Hi there
Thanks for presenting Colin's work. He has been working hard on this forever. I know, I am his sister. He is very brave (I wouldn't reveal half of what he does about myself) and very thorough in his research for his historic works. He is very well read and knowledgable about rather esoteric things and definitely not mainstream. I admire his tenacity and his scholarship as well as his artwork.

I haven't read much of Colin's work, but everything I've seen has been superb.

Dave,

You should be happy to know "Mostly Comics" in St. Catharines, Ontario is selling "Cerebus in Hell" #1. I was there today and saw it on display. Now I just need to encourage the owners to start ordering the archive portfolios.
