Out of loyalty i still buy small press publications whenever i am in places where i see them. The comic convention in Houten is such a plce, although i didn’t much home made comics. I bought a plastic bag full of magazines and booklets, but when i read them tonight i wasn’t very excited. Bad artwork, bad stories and big pretentions.
