The Comix Reader is an alternative comics newspaper that attempts to reignite the free spirit of the underground press. It presents a unique blend of established talent, new discoveries, outsider art and unsung heroes of the art form. It’s contributors are a rogues gallery of the UK’s funniest, edgiest and weirdest cartoonists.
The Comix Reader is an experiment in distribution and publishing. The comic is half distributed by Diamond, and half by the contributors themselves. 9,000 copies are printed and paid for by the artists. Diamond then takes orders from traditional comic outlets, and the "Comix Strippers" take it everywhere else. The paper is sold at music festivals, comedy gigs, in pubs, bookshops, record shops, on the beach and on the street.
