“Instead of running through the book in order, I’m going to divide it into four categories and address the work in each.
1) Work that I would have published, were I the editor. This is, sadly, the slimmest category. But there are some real gems in this book! It is a great pleasure to see Art Baxter in print again – his SPUD was an excellent book and his two stories in BAM! are lovely. Tim Danko is a truly original new voice in comics, and his HOLES is excellent. My story is good but I should have scanned it better and it looks weird on the page, that’s life. Glenn Smith’s “Ding,” which closes the book, is quite well drawn. And a long Mandy Ord story is always welcome. I found Ben Hutchings’ gags quite funny. Les McClaine can do better work but this is fine for a quick bit. So that’s 55 pages, or a little over 1/10 of the book’s length, that I would have paid to publish. “
