Indie Spinner Rack Issue #100


Not a dream! Not a hoax! Not an imaginary story! It's finally here - ISR #100! Recorded live at Duck Duck on Brooklyn with an audience of ISRmy members, surprise guests, and drunk cartoonists! Technical malfunctions! Inappropriate comments! Serious injuries! Retarded boners! How did we manage to salvage this mayhem into a show? Just barely!


Our sincere thanks to all who came out to join us for ISR100!

Indie Spinner Rack Issue #99.5


Making you wait just a little bit longer for ISR #100, we tide you over with this throwback to our old half-numbered episodes! Our special guest here is the legendary Paul Gravett, discussing his involvement in the UK indie comics scene of the early 1980's, publishing Escape magazine, and his recent books on comics history, including Manga: 60 Years of Japanese Comics and Graphic Novels: Stories to Change Your Life (published in the US as Graphic Novels: Everything You Need to Know)! Sitting in with Charlito for this interview is comics creator/publisher/editor Pete Friedrich, while Mister Phil is absent and jealous to have missed it!
