Mineshaft No.40 is a 60-page, digest size, black and white, comic zine anthology, printed on off-set press. Edited by Everett Rand. Front and Back Cover by Robert Crumb. All for only $10 bucks!

This massive 60-page issue features the talents of R. Crumb, Sophie Crumb, Drew Friedman, Laure Boin, Bill Griffith, Christoph Mueller, Mary Fleener, Max Clotfelter, Robert Armstrong, Denis Kitchen, Rika Deryckere, Gioia Palmieri, Aleksandar Zograf, John Porcellino, and a GIANT Letters section, Mineshaft Index (#31-40) & More!!!

Mary Fleener provides a sad and touching tale entitled “Death of a Crow” that’ll make you question just how different we are from our fine feathered friends. Sophie Crumb contributes four interesting and slightly bizarre paintings. Christoph Mueller sings a familiar song that all cartoonists can relate to in “Ink Stains & Back Pains.” Then R. Crumb gives us a couple of his “Sketchbook Drawings,” and Laure Boin delights with a trio of highly detailed and gorgeous portraits. Max Clotfelter serves up a piece of personal history in the rawly rendered “The Elements of Rough,” and Denis Kitchen tucks us in with a dreamy one-pager! All this graphic goodness plus a bunch more makes Mineshaft No.40 just the prescription you need to get through these COVID times!
