Minicomic gem...'Magic Johnson' by Nick Sumida

I bought this one a while ago, at the now-closed and much-missed 'Happy Birthday Mike Leslie' store in Worcester, MA. 

The cover is a work of art, literally. It's silkscreened on heavy print stock. I really like Nick Sumida's drawing style. There's a sense of freedom and a slightly crazed, childlike quality to it, while at the same time it's obvious that he's a highly skilled artist. Plus the writing's great. I especially enjoyed the comic documentary, "Imelda Marcos, A Short History." Check it out!
