Remember when you read comics on paper in pamphlet form and they would have a letters column with reader’s words and drawings? Yeah! Here is our Letters Page. Send Meathaus a real letter through the real mail to the address on the Contact page and we will scan it and put it here with a link to your website along with a response. Keep sending us letters!

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.

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!

Roger Omer

Roger Omer sent Meathaus this envelope stuffed with beautiful things from interesting and fantastic artists. And I took an ass-long time to post it. Shame, shame on me. Lee-the-spring-semester-intern scanned some of these and had it set up for me but then I just needed to scan some more because damnit everything is outstanding. So Roger engaged some artists to illustrate six authentic dreams from 8-10 year old children in Valencia, Spain, (and one has six dreams from a child in Tel Aviv, Israel) which remain the text accompanying each illustration, written in Spanish and English.

“Best Wishes,
and happy Dreams,
Roger Omer”

Thank you Roger, for such strange, folding items, part book, poster, or something else. Most of them have the dream text on the opposite side and more images. It is hard to illustrate here that most of the images above where you see only two pages are only a part of the panoramic accordion fold-out illustrations on each of these publications that flow the entire length of the side of paper. Maybe Roger’s got some on a website. Let’s check. So here is the website:

And it looks like you can check out more stuff and maybe get some books on Roger’s 6 Dreams Tumblr and here is a Flickr stash.

And of course the featured artists are Meathaus favorites: Matthew Houston, Thomas Wellmann, Max Fiedler, Wren McDonald, Amanda Baeza, and Roni Fahima.

Hope like the new Mineshaft.
Best wishes to you and Meathaus.

Yes! Thanks for this exciting comics, drawing, writing and Crumb’s dreams magazine. You’ve got Christoph Mueller doing a comic about growing up obsessing over Crumb then meeting him and corresponding with him, some Mary Fleener, Jay Lynch, Bill Griffith, and more in Issue 30. William Crook Jr. draws some city and landscapes. We took so long to get this post up you can already get your eyeballs over to the Mineshaft website and pre-order issue #31, coming right up! See previous issue of Mineshaft sent to Meathaus here.

With Nienawidze Ludzi #5 (this years issue), Harkonnen, Fat Fucking Flying Bastard (from 2012) and one NEW ONE – VRECKLESS VRESTLERS #0. Its about Vrestlers. They are fighting in space.

Yeah! Look at this Meathaus Vrestler Łukasz drew on the comic:

That guy is a tough guy. Follow along with the intergalactic Vrestling action on Vreckless Vrestlers where Łukasz has already shown off some subsequent issues (we took a long time to post this).
