History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Minicomics--sometimes called "small press" or "short run" comics--are generally self-published and often quite small. They may be photocopied and stapled by the creator, or they may display sophisticated techniques such as silkscreen, risograph, or elaborate bindings. Because minicomics are often the entry level for comics creators they can indicate the earliest work of creators who have gone on to be quite well known.
