This week I’m listing a ton of great mini-comics and such at eBay to help raise some funds for Poopsheet HQ. There are a bunch up already (see teaser below) with plenty more on the way. Please take a look and if you could share this with your comics pals I’d appreciate it. Thanks!
Giant monster fights! And one of them is a human slob infected with the American’s Disease. Now, you tell me, how can you go wrong?

We’ve hit 10,000 individual entries in the Database!
The honors for entry #10,000 go to Steven Ogden’s reference work, The Brad W. Foster Checklist of Published Works from the 20th Century (1972-2000). That checklist, by the way, contains 2,800 entries just for Brad Foster. And he’s only one man! Or so they say. But that may give you some idea of how much work is still left to be done at the Database.
Thanks, as always, to our patrons for their support. It makes a big difference and it’s nice to know there are folks who believe in a project like this. If you’d like to help the Database get bigger and better please take a look at the Patreon page.
Here’s to the next 10,000!
This is a massive catalog of every (or very nearly every) Brad Foster appearance in print up until January 1, 2000.
I know these progress updates are a bit dull but, hey, this Roy Tompkins art should spice things up a bit, right?
This past week I added 47 new entries to the Database and edited another 62 (added info, added photos, improved photos, etc.). I also scanned 30 covers and cropped and edited another 35. Lots of fun behind the scenes here!
The last entries for last week were a couple of Roy Tompkins’ The Mighty Insect lowbrow art zines from the ’80s (scan above donated by Lou Jacobs). Also recently added were some late ’70s/early ’80s newave comix, a good handful of UK fanzine Fantasy Advertiser and more.
As I type this there are currently 9,960 individual entries in the Database. Will we hit 10,000 this week? We’ll see!
Thanks, everybody, for your continued support. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions about this project please feel free to drop me an email.
