POOD, the oversized newspaper anthology of current cartoonists, has a third issue coming out in April, just in time for MoCCA, editor Adam McGovern writes:
One of the biggest success-stories in indie comics, and physically biggest comics in this or several neighboring universes, returns this April when POOD’s third issue comes to comic-shops across North America. Featuring some of the leading superstars of comics’ fringe — from Jim Rugg to Hans Rickheit — POOD’s 16 pages of 17 x 23-inch newspaper-style comics have proven that indie graphic novelty can still sell in tough economic times, and that the print fad may still catch on! The 3 is more than an issue-number, it’s the factor by which the crazy has exponentially escalated from comics’ most unfiltered creators! Between big-budget events, make room for sequential art’s event horizon! Designed for small budgets at just four-and-a-half-bucks, and set to debut in April, POOD 3 is orderable from Diamond Previews’ February issue; published by Big If Comics, item code FEB110807 (page 246 of the catalog, page 17 of the order form).
Here’s a sneak preview:
