Spring is in the air! Celebrate it with new comics and zines from Paper Rocket Minicomics.

The Age of Elves Issue 3
by Colin Lidston
6" x 9"
44 pages
Color cover, B&W interiors

Issue three of Colin Lidston's comic about the souls of geeks opens in Gen Con, America's largest table-top-gaming convention. Sarah, Jamie, Bram, and Evan seem to be the youngest people in attendance. 

Sarah befriends an older LARPer couple. The first day of gaming goes well, until Evan fails to return to the hotel room that night.

The Tiny Report #5
Edited by Robyn Chapman
with Haleigh Buck and Robin Enrico, cover by Zack Soto
5.5" x 8.5"
60 pages
Risograph cover and centerfold, full-color interior

This is our most ambitious issue of the Tiny Report yet, with 60 full-color pages of minicomic reviews, interviews, and bibliographies! We have profiles of two groundbreaking, but very different, comic artists. 

We start with an interview with Eleanor Davis and an overview of her early minicomic work.

 

 And we follow that with Haleigh Buck's in-depth interview with Mike Diana, the first American artist to be convicted of obscenity.

 

We also have a bunch of minicomic reviews by Robyn Chapman and Robin Enrico. And as always, we chronicle the output of micro-publishers in the Micro-Press Yearbook fold-out.

Risks and challenges

This is one of my patented quick-and-dirty Kickstarter campaigns. My goal is modest. I'm trying to raise $650, and almost all of that is going to the contributors who authored or contributed to these books: Colin Lidston, Haleigh Buck, Robin Enrico, and Zack Soto.

No real risk here: these books will be ready to print in a few weeks. I plan to debut these two titles at MoCCA, so if you're attending the festival, you can pick up your copies there. The rest should ship by the end of April.
