Last week I accidentally attended the meeting of a local writer’s group and got a sneak peek at a new mini-comic. I say accidentally, because they met in a bar and I was invited for a pre-meeting cocktail by my friend Kirsten. As everyone else gradually arrived, they convivially greeted me and invited me to stay. There wasn’t a point where it felt like the meeting officially began, so I just stayed. Before I knew it I was attending their meeting.
I’ve got a guilty secret within my guilty not-so-secret of comic book love and that is Joey Sayers’ hysterical mini-comic book; Passing Periods. This is one of those hand-stapled, photocopied, crappy little things, or at least that is all it appears to be on first glance, until you bother to read it and let the fun wash over you.
