Dave from Revival House Press sent Meathaus another package full of comics and a letter that reads:

“Meathaus,
What’s up?! It’s your old buddy Dave from Revival House. Got two new books for ya, Everything Unseen #4 and Ritual #3. I’m very proud of both these titles and I hope you enjoy them!
Stay dope!
Love, Dave”

For sure, Dave. Don’t doubt the dopeness, ever. And thanks! Everything Unseen is by Drew Beckmeyer, and #4 is the final chapter of this story, although the last page teases a full color epilogue coming soon. This book continues the free form pencil drawing style from previous issues. There are definitely some funny drawings and strange drawings in this book. Malachi Ward is the author of Ritual #3, which for this issue is titled (subtitled?) Vile Decay. Check out the truckload of Revival House titles Dave and friends have generously sent over in previous letters here to also see previous issues of these comics. Finally, take a closer look at this fine cover drawing, here an image of a special print, from Malachi’s Vile Decay. The surface textures of buildings and nature get special attention throughout this distinctly rendered two-color book. Get your copies right away from right here.

Check it out, C’est Bon Kulture has sent Meathaus the latest two issues of their C’est Bon Anthology,volumes 23 All Saints, and 24 HAIR. All Saints is a hardcover solo book by Marcel Ruijters and HAIR is the normal CBA multi-artist book, this time with international artists contributing their own work with the theme of “hair”. Results include three different comics with bears involved, one guy who shaves his body hair off (including the eyebrows) in a series of full body nude photographs, and one with a dj cat (and a tone-deaf KKK gag). See previous issues sent to Meathaus here and check out more on the C’est Bon Kulture website for complete contributor lists.

Brendan Danielsson of Subferior Fine Art Editions and Jason Murphy sent Meathaus over a package with two issues of Jason’s Juvenitive comic and a note that says:

“hey meat!”

Hey yourself, guys making neat stuff. And thanks! Jason’s first two issues of Juvenitive focus on some kids horsing around outside on bikes, finding bugs, being in a fort, breaking some stuff, not being aware of the consequences of their actions, puking, running from snakes, crying, feeling guilty and so on. Check out more on Jason’s Tumblr and buys comics and art here, and see previous letters with his work here and here.

Letter to Meathaus: Matt Crabe Heaven's Favorite Man

Matt Crabe Heaven’s Favorite Man sent Meathaus a package with two new zines, Tenderness and Pink Devil Sex Party on Orgy Island and a letter written on a facsimile rejection letter from Playboy:

“Hey MEATHAUSE! Heres my new magazine It’s so Tender your heart may explode, so be careful. I didn’t chop off any fingers making this book, sorry!
Matt Crabe Heaven’s Favorite Man.”

The first part of Tenderness includes drawings of super sex-organ monstrosities with squirting poles and drippy holes interacting across the gutterless panels of these abstract comics. Part two features full page drawings of the same, this time as symmetrical panel-less compositions including 40oz bottles, bow ties and irritated razor burn. Finally part three includes studies of bones and disembodied flesh parts molded into the shape of the Playboy bunny logo and four panel comic pages on the right about some cartoon dog, a headstone and a woman of some type dripping and falling apart and sinking into a grave. The title of the second book is pretty much a spot-on description of the drawings inside. Thanks, Matt! And just like last time, Meathaus and the USPS thanks you for not sending any actual fleshy parts over.

See more from Matt over here and get your zines here.

Adam Lichi sent Meathaus a package with the hand-made art book Personal Feelings: Volume I and a letter that is very wordy and I don’t have a problem with that but I’m just going to show you the scan of it so you can read it with your own eyeballs:

Letter to Meathaus: Adam Lichi

Thanks Adam for this book and letter. Check it out he’s got this sort of silver embossed text on these black paper covers, and an accordion-style binding of these art pages. It’s a brief book with a handful of drawing spreads but you can see more from Adam over on his website, youngmutant.com, as mentioned in the letter.

StudioFludd sent Meathaus a package with a book about gelato and a letter that reads:

“Hello! We’re StudioFludd and this is our last project with pages. Hope you like it. Thanks!
STUDIOFLUDD
Venezia, May 2014″

Thanks STUDIO FLUDD for this sexy book about cold dessert landscapes, Gelatology: Micro/Macro. Last project with pages? Maybe you are never making another one? Or perhaps, simply, this is the last one you made. Don’t stop, this is a tasty book. I’ll even forgive you for breaking the cardinal rule of “never mail a package with confetti in it.” I know that’s not written down anywhere, but yeah. Granted, it was hand-made confetti. Spot a piece in one of these scans above. Cool stamps. I love getting these international packages with so many stamps and foreign postal insignia all over them. Explore more handsome work from Studio Fludd on their website and blog, and Tumblr where you will see that they are really into gelato projects.

Kurt Austin sent Meathaus two new zines and a letter that says:

“Dear Meathaus!
Here are some zines of mine for you to peruse. I love the website! Keep up the good work!
–Kurt Austin”

Awesome thanks for these zines and the letter, Kurt. The zines are called Dumb Luck (issue one and two), and they are free form drawing and comics zines. The first issue is more doodly and collage-like with drawings on top of drawings and text. the second ish has a lot of little nonsense and visual gag one-pagers. See both issues and more from Austin on his Tumblr.

SpaceFace

Mack from SpaceFace sent Meathaus a delightful package with books printed with digital duplicator technology and a postcard that reads:

“Here are some Riso books! ♡ Mack”

Thanks Mack! What we’ve got here is a postcard with Michael DeForge artwork featuring The Boy in Question, Me Nut Nut Nut #2 by Jason Murphy, Misliving Amended by Adam Buttrick, and MS2 Resurrection by Gabriel Corbera. All three books are curiously confusing with interesting action that creates unique reading sensations.

SpaceFace

Gabriel Corbera’s weird, balding, action/business-man has to deal with a lot of vampire-zombie-mutants in a world of benches, empty rooms, and drab office buildings.

SpaceFace

Adam Buttrick’s pleasurably cartooned characters psychotically maintain their one expression each while judging, processing and executing each other.

SpaceFace

Read a lot of Jason Murphy’s work on his site as well as this book and you will enjoy picking up on themes of spiders, spider nightmares, spider eggs, and in this case, maybe spider bites and allergic pustules. Also then some character snorts this kid and his mom’s house into its nose and there are some Spanish speaking creatures there, so brush up on your español, amigos.

Finally, dig into these past packages from the SpaceFace here, here and here!
