I draw comics for myself now and then. I print them and fold them into books because it’s fun. I give them to friends and, on very rare occasions, my homemade comics find their way into galleries, comic shops, and bookstores. When that happens, I wonder (sort of desparately) “Who reads mini-comics?” Well, I just found out: Shawn Hoke of Indy, Indiana.
Shawn loves mini-comics. His blog, Size Matters, is devoted to the subject. He reports on comics events like SPX and he reviews mini-comics with gentle scrutiny. This is a man who clearly enjoys the simplest things in life. So, if you want to make his day, pack up your most personal, most oddly drawn stories and send them to Shawn asap.
He’ll enjoy them more than your grandparents will.
