Check out that Mary Fleener cover on this bad boy. And look at that tag list below to see just some of the artists represented in this volume (I think I got most of them.) Thanks again Everett and co-publisher/co-editor Gioia Palmieri for doggedly cranking out this labor of love… This is issue #33! That’s an impressive chunk of independent publishing. Heck, Meathaus only made it to #9 (SOS, buy one here over half-off, fool! The discount more than covers the shipping cost, duh! Still a deal, you sack of sh-!) But truthfully, on this post about Mineshaft we should be pushing their wares with our refined sales techniques, not ours. Do yourself a favor and get over to the Mineshaft website to take a look at this and past issues and get yourself some prime toilet reading (it really is, nice variety, small sections, one and two-pager comics etc.) Also see past Mineshafts to Meathaus on the Mineshaft tag.

Check it out, Everett Rand of Mineshaft publishing-fame has shared with Meathaus the latest issue, #32, of this dreamy comics zine that features Christoph Mueller‘s cover and work by Mary Fleener, Bill Griffith, David Collier, Laure Boin, J.D. Wilkes, John Broadley, Frank Stack, Robert Armstrong, Jay Lynch, Karl Stevens, William Cook Jr., Fly, Pat Moriarity, Noah Van Scriver, Fiona Smyth, and Aleksandar Zograf. The friendly package included a note from Everett which reads:

“Hello Chris and Meathaus,
Here’s a copy of the new Mineshaft…
Very best wishes for 2016!
Everett”

Well thank you Everett and best wishes at you as well. This zine is crammed with a sampler of drawings and stories, sometimes tastes of something larger like the selected pages of Bill Griffith’s Invisible Ink, sometimes satisfying two-pagers like Noah Van Scriver‘s Rich Dad Poor Dad. To reminisce about previous issues sent to Meathaus you can peruse the Mineshaft tag, and to get your own copy of #32 you should navigate to Mineshaft‘s website where you can find even more.
