Not even a bad copy machine would stop us from creating our books. (Although it did cause us to make way fewer copies than we would have.)
Bryan ‘BG’ Graham created Bryan’s Angels, a preview for an up coming series that he is working on. He was working fully digital for the first time and felt like he hit some hiccups, but I thought his work looked rad.
Eric Mengel created another 8 pages for his Ocho series. As the day began Eric asked his friends to suggest items to include in his Ocho story, he had a huge list and I believe he crammed them all in there.
Damon Begay created the Dictator of Love. A short little piece about someone who tells you which relationship is right and which is wrong. A mix of many of his influences can me found in this book.
Wil ‘Reset Survivor’ Hines created Earwig & Maggot. About an earwig and maggot that bring a dead body to life and take him out for a couple of drinks.
Denny ‘dennmann’ Riccelli created another Get That Chicken short. This book features a little girl, a rainbow and a chicken.
Xtra thanx to Jesse James Comics for host the event. Thanx to kind people at Office Max for staying open an extra 20 minutes so that we could finish copying books on their photocopier (even if it was jacked up a little). Special thanx to Birdie for bringing us some cookies on his way to work. Finally thanx to all the others who showed up and hung out with us throughout the day (and even those who followed our adventures on social media), your support is the reason we make comics.
Hope to do it all over again next year!
Jesse James Comics is hosting a Mini-Comics Day Event featuring these fine folks –
Damon Begay, Eric Mengel, Wil Hines, Denny Riccelli and Bryan Graham.
Stop and and check out how things are going as the day progresses. We plan on being at the copy shop between 5-7pm and having our books available for sale at 8pm. Should be a whole lot of fun.

Here’s my contribution to Minicomics Day: “FLAME BROILED: DIARY OF A BURGER-FLIPPER,” a 10-pager concerning the minutiae of fast food employment. In this premiere issue, Betty gets her first job at Burger Shanty and learns how to toast buns, prep shrimp salad and more! Meet the diverse Burger Shanty crew, representing an underground culture rarely depicted in the media.
Not an exploitation, not a dissertation, just an incidentally funny and honest glimpse at behind-the-scenes burger-flippin. $2, free shipping. contact me or visit my Etsy store to order your copy! Yes, it’s Xeroxed, and, yes, it shows, but don’t you miss those simple days?
I’m hoping to make this a series, developing the characters more and telling more fun stories with each issue.
Once again, CONTACT ME TO REQUEST YOUR COPY TODAY!
I also have some copies in my Etsy store.
Thanks for reading,
