Copy This! #9
Copy This! #9 is a 40-page, B&W info and news mini comic zine about comics (mini or otherwise). Published by D. Blake Werts.
This issue includes an interview of Clark Dissmeyer by Richard Krauss. Clark opens up about the appeal of self-publishing, how he got into zines and mini comics, his inspirations (past and present), his approach to the creative process, and what he’s up to now and how to get his comics. The last few pages of Copy This! #9 provides news and info on current offerings from other creators such as Alec Longstreth, Joseph Tenney, Brian John Mitchell, Joe Wehrle Jr., James Stanton, Chad Woody, and Carrie McNinch!
