Cold Heat Returns in Serialized Form -- While everyone and their brother are canceling their low-print-run floppy funnybooks because Diamond doesn't know how to distribute comic books (only corporate-owned superhero comic books, y'see), Frank Santoro, Ben Jones and Picturebox are saying "Fuck all that," and publishing comics anyway. They've released a 48-page combined issue #5-6 of their extraordinary series Cold Heat and you can must buy it now at the Picturebox website.

Yes, it's 20 dollars. And yes, it's worth it. I know I'm the guy who questioned Kramers Ergot costing a week's worth of grocery money, but you know, this is different. This is lunch for two at Applebee's if you go in during their 2 for 20 special they have running right now. Plus, this is Cold Heat by motherfucking Frank Santoro and Ben Jones, the single best argument for the survival of the floppy, stapled, non-graphic novel comic book as art object all by its own self.

And there're only 100 copies in existence, so you need to go get yours now. Someday the story will be collected in a big graphic novel, and that'll be nice, but you know what? Like Lee and Ditko's Amazing Spider-Man or Rugg and Maruca's Street Angel, this is a comic book that's meant to be read and experienced as a comic book.

So go buy it.
