In 1987 Steve Willis announced that he was killing his Morty the Dog character for good this time (or so he said). So the team of Hal Hargit and David Tosh got a bunch of cartoonists together to produce this thick "affectionate tribute/roast/eulogy" for the character (and his creator, of course).
* Morty meets Fritz the Cat (courtesy of D. Tosh)
* a gorgeous Morty centerspread by Jeff Gaither
* Steve Willis as a Matt Feazell stick character
* Wayno's story in which Morty meets Howie the Hat (sort of) and speaks only in lines from classic R&B songs
* Ted Bolman's "The Mortys Steve Didn't Draw"
* an 8½ × 11" fold-out jam by Willis and most of the contributors
Includes fold-out centerspread.
Zap Comix tribute issue. Contents include a centerspread "paste-up phunny" collage piece featuring Zap imagery and a jam comic by D. Tosh, Denis Kitchen, Bill Sienkiewicz, Don Simpson, Larry Marder, Mark David Dietz and Mark Stokes.

This was a project put together by Edd Vick which consists of eight mini-comics all with the title "Serial Killer" and all by cartoonists who were living in the Dallas / Ft. Worth area at the time the project was conceived. I believe each contributor actually published their minis and Vick sold them as sets.
64 pages total (plus wrap)
Numbered edition of 100
I believe it was originally released in shrink wrap.

What Is This Site?
A virtual archive of mini-comics, fanzines, small press comics, newave comix and related items. The physical archive, housed at PF headquarters, is being built with personal acquisitions as well as generous donations from supporters. This project is most definitely a work in progress.
