A gift from Johnny Ryan, patterned after a parody from the back cover of Angry Youth Comix #1: 

 

Two business card drawings I picked up at a con a few years ago for a couple of bucks each. I know nothing about either cartoonist, but I've always wanted to know what a little baby who looks ready to fight has to do with a strip called "Off the Record":

 Here's a Dan Clowes drawing of Richie Rich's nemesis that graced a package he sent me many years ago:

MOME Winter/Spring 2008 (Vol. 10)
By various artists; edited by Gary Groth & Eric Reynolds

Critically acclaimed for its compilation of dynamic young cartoonists, this volume of Mome showcases the vibrant newbies and a few of the more established artistes. Mome Vol. 10 features the 20 page conclusion to the Jim Woodring graphic novella, "The Lute String." This story, previously published only in Japan, features Woodring's signature characters — Frank, Pupshaw, and Pushpaw — in a universe-bending saga that finds the trio in a very unexpected world of flying, shrieking demons and bulbous-faced monsters. Also featuring the work of Tom Kaczynski (and an interview with him with Gary Groth), Robert Goodin, Dash Shaw, Ray Fenwick, John Hankiewicz, Sophie Crumb, Tim Hensley, and Jonathan Bennett, plus a surprise Mome debut from Jeremy Eaton. The reclusive Al Columbia emerges once again, this time providing the cover.

120-page 7" x 9" b&w/color softcover $14.95

Have you looked at Al Columbia's website lately? There's some killer new images up, there, like the faux-poster for the Dario Argento film, SUSPIRA, that the above detail is from.
