Minicomic Minute: Roxie No. 5 and 6

A look at two books from Stephanie Mannheim's series, Roxie, which combine simple components in interesting ways to create spectacularly engaging covers!

I can do two books in an episode, right?!  I mean, I’m the one making the rules here!  Well, good, because I couldn’t decide between these two books by Stephanie Mannheim from her Roxie series.  Each uses very simple components (regular photocopying, color paper) in very interesting ways to create some spectacularly engaging covers!

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!
