50 Comics Positives For 2014: Mineshaft Hits 15 With 30th Issue
Mineshaft is one of the great comics magazines ever published: an ongoing, rueful meditation on comics and art-making that expresses and embodies the values of 20th Century underground/outsider culture (no matter when they were published). Its passionate contributors include Mary Fleener, Pat Moriarity and Robert Crumb. To last 15 years and 30 issues is a great achievement for any magazine, but infinitely so for a publication with this focused of an interest. I hope it's an accomplishment more people will be up for celebrating as it becomes 16 years/31 issues and so on.
