The League is Billups Allen’s first full-length novel. It follows the struggles of Martin Selby as he overcomes crippling social anxiety and being self-conscious about his weight only to discover there is no real reward in doing so.
Physical copies available from me.
#4 again follows the vignette format. It has been said to have gone off the rails a bit for including a long article about the obscure bebop sax player Aubrey Moore. I try to think of it as Cramhole's New Yorker phase. Still plenty of vignettes illustrated by artists Christine Cunniff, Laura Harris, Jay Littleton, Josh Baker, and Anne Baker. Also, Mr. Chen returns, probably because he was unemployed at the time. Segments include "Things Overheard at Smash," "What's in the Hold Bin?," and "The Near Misses of Aubrey Moore."
#3 continues the vignette format with another series of comic stories about working in record stores and being a general dumbass. Dorothy Gambrell and Mr. Chen return (under the condition that I never call again) and Danny Martin from the excellent zine Publick Occurances (also not speaking to me) contribute. Segments include: "More Death of the American Record Store" and "Yard Sale."
#2 is a series of comic vignettes about working in general and also working in my most comfortable space: record stores. Cat and Girl's Dorothy Gambrell generously contributed a comic in this issue, along with the rare and enigmatic Mr. Chen. Segments include: "Death of the American Record Store" and "Who Hasn't Had at Least Thirteen Fuckin' Jobs!!!"
Cramhole #1 is a 40-page comic inspired by a series of difficult houseguests one busy summer. Billups Allen has been accused of being a stick-in-the-mud about it, but those people didn’t live through it.
I added $3 shipping across the board. For the bundles it evens it out to $5 an issue, which is generally the hand to hand price.
Drop a line for zine bundles. I can’t get the Paypal buttons to stick. But I’m working on it.
