"In BW, cartoonist and comics archivist Jim Rugg curates a collection of brilliant, weird, oddball and otherwise graphically intense artwork from the black and white comics boom of the 80’s and 90’s. A master course in questionable taste."

​-- John Porcellino, King-Cat Comics


In 1984, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird self-published the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Their success inspired thousands of others to enter the low-stakes world of black-and-white comic book publishing. 

These comic books came from towns all over America and featured some of the weirdest, wildest, best, and worst comics ever seen!  

The BW zine is a collage of found art, text, and design celebrating this misbegotten era of comics.
