Minicomic Minute: The Complete Talamaroo

A brilliant 4-color screen-printed wrap-around cover adds flair (and spine) to a captivating minicomic.

Well well well!  The Complete Talamaroo by Alabaster!  This is one of my favorite minicomics for a plethora of reasons.  Not only is the story just plain fun and the drawings absolutely captivating, but the book is jaw-dropping!  Printed by Sean Knickerbocker and Alex Bullet, every surface of this book has been considered.  Also, are you a self-publisher looking to make a perfect bound book, but don’t know how?  Or want to do it on the cheap (but I actually want to say “on the clever”)? Then look no further than this gem!!

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!
