See How Pretty, See How Smart No. 4 edited by Sean McCarthy & Craig Taylor

See How Pretty, See How Smart No. 4
edited by Sean McCarthy & Craig Taylor

$5 | 28 pages | 8.5" x 11" | b&w xeroxed

Now co-edited by painter Craig Taylor (who designed the two-color silkscreen cover), this scatology- and eschatology-themed anthology features Andy Bodor's recollections of bizarre childhood hallucinations and a tribute to his former band, Loafmeister; three of Christian Holstad's creepily poignant "Eraserhead" drawings; thematically appropriate animal and monster drawings by Sean McCarthy; a lovingly abject glimpse into Jackson Pollock's daily life by Chris Patch; Zak Smith's comics about an ill-mannered pig, two smacking bastards and some nasty, nasty men; a rogues' gallery of filthy, pitiable creatures by Craig; two typically hilarious and impressively crafted comics by Matt Wiegle; and a strangely tasteful vision of a post-cultural diarrhea exhibit by Kevin Zucker. Sure to disturb and alienate nearly everyone.

See How Pretty, See How Smart No. 3
edited by Sean McCarthy

$5 | 40 pages | 8.5" x 11" | b&w xeroxed

This animal-and-monster-themed anthology becomes even more monstrous in its third installment: 40 letter-sized pages of comics and art from Andy Bodor, Shawn Cheng, Jeffrey Lewis, Sean McCarthy, Theo Rosenblum, Zak Smith, Craig Taylor, and Matt Wiegle. The deluxe screen-printed cover features a silver background by Zak Smith and a 3-color, 3-legged lizard by Sara Edward-Corbett on the outside, and a 2-color monster mash by John Mejias on the inside.

"Works very well for the brave or the foolish."

See How Pretty, See How Smart No. 2
edited by Sean McCarthy

$2 | 26 pages | 7" x 8.5" | b&w xeroxed

Monsters and animals overrun this sophomore installment of the anthology masterminded by the Scheming Behemoth. Sean McCarthy's painstakingly rendered appendage-orifice hybrids are beautiful and engrossing, Sara Edward-Corbett's urbane pigs and lizards are fast and furious, and Zak Smith's ruminations on the age-old riddle "Why is there monsters?" is simply hilarious.

"Creepy as shit." — Razorcake

See How Pretty, See How Smart No. 1
edited by Sean McCarthy

$2 | 28 pages | 7" x 8.5" | b&w xeroxed

A classy anthology that includes "comics" by Sean McCarthy and those of his more devoted or more easily manipulated friends. Sean takes excerpts of Gulliver's Travels and pairs them with pervy-looking animals, Shawn Cheng takes the least pervy scene from Lolita and somehow makes it dirty, Emily Kremer talks about feeling pervy, notorious pervert Zak Smith offers an erudite treatise on the subject of Total Failure, Furnitures the Great Brown Oaf experiences a non-pervy existential crisis, and Matt Wiegle provides comic relief.
