So the big secret is that I'm releasing Candy or Medicine Volumes 14 & 15 simultaneously. The reason? 1. I've never done it before. 2. This is the first time that I've had all of the material for two issues at one time (thanks to all the contributors for being very punctual!).…

I recieved your zines and I read them all! I wish I had known you were going to send several and I would've sent you more copies of my zine! I drew some comics and I'm going to send some to you.

Let me know if you do move back!

my son is 16 and I get big street cred for being the zine making Dad...LOL

Right now we're the only game in town except for the skate boarding zine Dead Ramones. but I think we've spurred some others to pop up. Lots of good things happening music and art-wise in town and it makes the zine that much more fun to make.

Hey Josh!

My son actually goes to Beechwood! I'm trying to instill a little zine culture to the N KY and Cinci area...so far it's doing pretty good! you can download pdf versions of them on our ning site at hellinahandbasket.ning.com

Hey Josh, I've been away for ages, I'm just catching up with my mail now. Please resend it you want a fast answer, actually, the fast answer is 'yes'. I've got a new issue of Beat Motel coming out tomorrow if you'd like to trade?

Your package left Japan this morning...or at least it left my hands and is now in the custody of the Japanese Postal System. Hope the comics arrive safely, but more importantly I hope you enjoy reading them!

Hey Josh,
I got your comics in the mail today (friday) and I will drop a package full of comics off on Monday. Its already Saturday here in Japan so the post office is closed. Curse that privatized postal system!!! Thanks again for the trade.

hi Josh,
I draw a comic diary called Sundogs. I have been doing it for about a year and I would love to trade for "Candy or Medicine" or Candy . . .or medicine. Preferably the first one. Please let me know if you would be interested in a trade.
