Hiatus No More

After a long hiatus, the Finecomix gang will be planning a new MOXIE mini-comix in 2011! We are taking up a challenge proposed by The Revenge of Print.

"We are challenging everyone who's ever made/self-published a zine, a comic or mini-comic before to dust off the ol' photocopier and make at least one more new issue in 2011. "
Keep your eyes peeled on this blog!

Frozen warnings close to mine, close to the frozen borderline

Currently Finecomix is undergoing a restructuring, which means we'll be firing up the rockets when we get them adjusted. We'll keep you posted on our news, sports, and weather. Meanwhile, please enjoy this funny spontaneous cartoon. --MC

I have always been here before

Week two. I started putting stuff here on Tuesdays with the idea that people would check in, and there might be some other stuff here by the other Finecomixers that you see listed to the right .. There's been some, there might be more. So keep checking in! I didn't just hijack this blog for my own self-aggrandizement. Anyway, I forgot the page again today (I scanned it, and left it on the desktop at the copy center), so here's the Kurt Calavera I did a decade ago.
