WHITE BUFFALO GAZETTE: THE MILLENNIUM ISSUE


This post is just kind of an adjunct to my recent three part history of the the long-running Obscuro Art zine The White Buffalo Gazette (see below for links).  In 2000 AD, editor Jeff Zenick published his last Gazette, one of the most lovingly produced zines I've ever seen.  It included hand-silkscreened covers (featuring the artwork of the great John Miller), hand-embellished back covers, unique hand-glued found imagery, and, of course, the art, writing, and comix of dozens upon dozens of underground artists (all in alphabetical order!).

I recently pulled my copy out and thought I'd include some snapshots of it.  This isn't of course every page from the issue, but should give you a good idea of what a Zenick-edited issue of White Buffalo Gazette was like.  In my opinion, this issue was the crowning achievement of 90's obscuro publishing.

The brilliant Jim Conatser.  I sure hope he's still making comics.

    I took a few photos of the new WBG, if you're interested. The above issue looks amazing, I wish I were in it!

  2. Hi there, just finished a 166 page book collecting all of John's 90's comics - working and scanning fom a lot of these WBG, as some of the original art's gone AWOL.... An 80's and 00's book of similar sizes coming in future.

    I'l keep you posted - it's gonna be immense!

    Best,

    Rob Miller

  4. Son of Jim Conatser here. I don't think he still is making comics, but know he does the occasional picture. I could be wrong about this, though.
