Minicomic Minute: Dig

A vertically-oriented comic with a fantastic die-cut cover from Isabella Rotman.

Today on the Minicomic Minute, we’re going to take a look at one of the amazing minicomics made by cartoonist Isabella Rotman.  This is one of the first books I got form her, and it continues to be my favorite.  The combination of the die cut, the cover illustration, and the strong blacks of the interior cover are really memorable, and is only the start of this great comic.

In the Minicomic Minute, I look at all of the wonderful books that are being made in the indie comic self-publishing scene.  In my opinion, we are really in a golden age of book making.  The quality of books coming from self publishers is breathtaking!  While there are many fine reviewers out there that look at content (I’ll be the first to say that content is king), I’m going to focus on the actual fabrication of these wonderful tomes.  How are the books made?  What simple decisions are self-publishers making to turn a good book into an AMAZING book?  We’ll see!  A new review every Monday!
