Mini-comic king

January 27th, 2023

Colin Upton, a veteran of the Vancouver comics and Lowbrow art scenes for more than 30 years, will release in May, Post-Modern Mini-Comics (Conundrum Press $10), a palm-sized collection of rare autobiographical work of the artist’s everyday experiences. See him struggle with a new pair of stiff Doc Marten boots, or cross the border on a bus. One thing you won’t read about is celebrity culture, which Upton says misleads people into believing life has no meaning without fame. After dropping out of art school in 1985, Upton went on to create over 300 mini-comics and digests. He has also created indie comics Big Thing, Buddha on the Road and Incubus; won awards for cartoon illustrations; and appeared in numerous comics anthologies. 9781772620849
