Time Warp Comix #5 edited by Dan Taylor
This is easily the best "you damned kids, get off my lawn!" comic I've ever read, and it manages that feat while being a tiny thing. The tone is set right away with the cover, then there's a one page story by George Erling (which doesn't have anything to do with the theme I mentioned but is still a fun shortie), then there's the gem of the book. Jim Siergey details the origins of mini comics, including things I'd never heard of, and I like to think I've at least kept up with this sort of thing. After two solid pages of learning, Jim goes off the rails with a delightful rant about how young cartoonists reading this aren't going to learn anything anyway as "history to this generation is what happened 10 minutes ago". Brilliant, and sadly true. Bob Vojtko has a one page story up next about how conventions have changed in the last 30 years, and the book is rounded off by David Miller and his 8 tracks. Not a single thing to complain about here, the whole thing is just good clean fun.
