Cartoon Loonacy is an APA (amateur press association) like CAPA-alpha or Rowrbrazzle, although it’s historically more tied to newave/minicomix. Its membership is comprised of cartoonists and its focus is comics of all kinds. Members printed their own pages (around 25 copies for each issue) and sent them to the Central Mailer who then collated and bound each issue before sending finished, complete issues back to the members. Begun in 1984 by George Erling.
Some of the contents include: Michael Roden tribute art by Richard Krauss and Bill Shut; inserted postcard for the TYPHON (comics anthology) book launch in Seattle; lots more.
