The fifth edition of Zainab Akhtar’s ShortBox is available for purchase worldwide. This is a curated box of short comics by the best indie cartoonists out there including Freddy Casrasco, Jeremy Sorese Areeba Siddique, and the red hot Rosemary Valero-O’Connell. As usual it’s an incredibly well curated list of cartoonists, with am emphasis on the literary side of the indie comics world.
ShortBox is available to order for £35 plus shipping – shipping to the US from the UK where is a bit pricey, but considering that all the comics are really novellas it’s still a good deal. (And the exchange rate is pretty bad right now as well, shhhhhh.)
Here’s a peek at what’s inside:
Barbara by Nicole Miles, 28pp full colour.
What is Left by Rosemary Valero-O’Connell, 36pp, colour.
