    The third and final book in Michael Dowers' retrospective/selective history of the American mini comics scene. Not as good as the second volume but definitely better than the first, this one has some real peaks but some valleys as well. In all this is a fascinating series that highlights the great breadth of subject matter and the wide-open, anything goes spirt of the mini comics art form.
