Collects work from Dallas Fantasy Comics (souvenir mini-comic of the Dallas Fantasy Fair) and Dallas Fantasy Fair Mini-Comics Workshop minis.
It also includes Tosh's autobiographical "Dinner with Crumb" story and a number of jam comix pages by artists like R. Crumb, Spain Rodriguez, Gilbert Shelton, Denis Kitchen, Bill Sienkiewicz and others.
There are a few contributors I'm not sure about:
-- "Roe" (Charles Roe?)
-- unknown (the piano wire flossing illo)
Some of this issue's contents: three pages of Roger Langridge "Fred the Clown" strips (still called "Bill the Clown" at this point); a page of sketches collected at a convention (drawings by Jim Woodring, Peter Bagge, Mary Fleener, Roberta Gregory and David Lasky); gorgeous back cover by Hilary Barta.
Characters appearing in art and comics include: Bazooka Joe, Popeye, Little Orphan Annie, Zone, Jack Abel, Frank, Buddy Bradley and Bitchy Bitch.
Fewer than 50 copies printed (probably more like 25)

The contents were solicited, produced and turned in during the show and the mini-comix would be available for sale by the final day of the show.

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.
