MAUS spinoff: RAW

1 Aug

I found MAUS by Art Spiegelman an interesting story.  After doing a little research, I found he edited a comics anthology called RAW.  The anthology was a flagship in the 1980s alternative comics movement.  The comics magazine featured mainly American and European authors, but they also incorporated others from all over the world – Japan, Argentina, and Chile included.  Although the magazine primarily featured comics, it also often featured non-comics illustrations and prose.

Volume 1 of RAW were creatively printed in huge doormat sized black and white pages stapled together and hand packaged unorthodoxly by Spiegelman and his staff with odds and ends, such as trading cards or gum.
