Minicomic Minute: The Crooked Cuyahoga

A beautifully executed comic with not one but five die-cuts on the cover.

Die-Cutting is a bookmaking term that refers to a portion of a cover or page that is cut away to expose what is underneath.  It’s a hard technique to pull off once, but FIVE TIMES!?!?  Bryn Adams hits it out of the park with this beautiful book.

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!
