While in art school at Pratt Institute, I started a magazine with my friend Seth Tobocman and much to our surprise 35 years later we're still publishing it--with the help of a large group of other contributors.
Here's the cover of the first issue. The title was inspired by the idea that Ronald Reagan and his itchy trigger finger was about to become the president of the United States. Here's a little video that goes into more detail.
Actually Seth and I go back way farther than art school. Here's our first grade picture (I'm the short one).
We both got interested in comics as kids and did our first fanzine when we were 11 (cover by our fave Jack Kirby).
We did fanzines together all through high school. G.A.S Lite was the official magazine of the Cleveland Graphic Arts Society--a small group of comic book nerds. This cover was done by Gary Dumm who later went on drawing regularly for another Clevelander named Harvey Pekar.
Here's a collaboration that Seth and I did together for the first issue of WW3.
So here we are 35 years later about to publish an anthology covering this history. The book is at the printers and will be out in June. We've been doing a Kickstarter for the last month to help cover the printing bill.
There's one day left in our Kickstarter campaign. If you buy the book now through this it will help us to keep publishing the magazine. But either way check out the anthology when it comes out this June.
