So what are minicomics?
For this collection, we define minicomics as any hand-made and independently-published comics. Minicomics, like zines, are one of the original democratic publishing formats, allowing creators to easily and inexpensively make, reproduce, and distribute their work. They differ from zines in that their content is primarily graphic narrative and cartooning, rather than writing.
Don't let the name fool you, though- minicomics come in all sizes and formats, from postage stamp-sized accordion-folded booklets to miniature scrolls to full newspapers. Materials can also vary from simple photocopied pages to booklets with silkscreened covers, sometimes housed in unusual boxes or containers.
