Letter to Meathaus: Rusty Jordan

Rusty Jordan

Rusty Jordan sent Meathaus issues one and two of History in Ruins by Rusty Jordan and Andrew Smith and a note that says:

“Here are some comics for you to check out. Hope you dig them! -Rusty”

Thanks Rusty, these are the best. I’m already hooked on these books full of rubbery wrinkles and dirty deeds. I learned about Duane Fields’s cruddy part time job and his mom’s tight pants and his basement chill zone in his mom’s house where he hangs out with a rodent. Most of all I’m running my eyes over these gritty cartoon drawings with 100% pleasure. I’m searching all over the internet to help our readers find the location where they could secure their own copies, but all I find is Rusty’s twitter. Also a review over here of issue 1. Maybe that’s a start.

EDIT: See the comments for info on how to get some History in Ruins.

Shitbeams on the Loose 2

Shitbeams On The Loose 2 arrived recently from Revival House Press and you can see a few more example pages on their newly established website. The second volume of the anthology comic book is edited by Rusty Jordan and includes stories by Ron Rege Jr., Jason Overby, Dave Nuss, Andrew Smith, Hector Serna Jr., Brent Harada, Robyn Jordan, John Hankiewicz, Grant Reynolds, Ryo Kuramoto, Amane Yamamoto, Rusty Jordan, Luke Ramsey, and Andy Rementer who also did the swell cover.

The book has 60 b/w pages and an overall comics feeling that you can get a handle on by clicking a few of the cool links listed above. The Revival crew will be at MoCCA 2010, so check them out in person then too.
