Sandusky Review 3: Preview.

faked by Thursday, March 20th, 2008

The latest Sandusky Review has been in the works for a few weeks now. I was really proud of the last issue, but if there’s a jarring disconnect from the Jitney 14-based illustrations and the story (even though it takes place in and around the Fortification legend). So I decided I was going to make a more properly illustrated story.


The cover and all the pages of this Sandusky are scratchboard, carved to have the general shape of a Polaroid, with the white space left blank at the bottom for the later insertion of text. The originals are 5×7, and I hope to have a mini-show of them at some point. First, though—I have to finish the story, a horror tale set in the Mississippi Delta in the 1930’s.

The text of this panel, which is page six of the 14-page story, reads “THEN one July night the twelve-year-old son of John Tindime didn’t come for dinner when his momma called.”

They’re each taking me a couple hours to do, so I have hopes that I can be done and have the new ones printed by the end of April. Huzzah for summer zines! Speaking of which—the new Obsessive Consumption is out, I got mine in the mail yesterday—and it’s probably my favorite yet. Check it out!

Update: download the full zine here.

    Oh, delight’s delight.

    But I did so love those Jitney illustrations.

    Lookin’ good, man. Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy, and if you hand deliver that thing and I’ll compensate with gin and bitters cocktails resurrected from the turn o’ the century.
