MadInkBeard No.2: Supplement

Due to space constraints, I did not include any example images in my essay on photocomics in MadInkBeard No.2. So I’ve created this supplemental page to showcase some of the work I mention. A number of these deserve closer attention (some don’t), but I’m only offering limited samples here (and not always the best or most representative ones because of scanning issues).


Apologies for poor scans/photos and some lack of citation information. Some of these were only available online and some were in a format that was difficult/impossible for me to scan well.
