The Underground Comix Journal
These little magazines, published from 1978 til 1982, each have a color cover by a well-known underground cartoonist, an interview with a top cartoonist or publisher, original art, comix, various articles, reviews and underground/small press news. The exceptions are issues 15 and 23, which are all comix and art. There is so much material of historical interest, especially in the interviews, that I plan to one day produce a CD ROM collection of Cascade. Some of the people interviewed in Cascade have died. Others of have gone on to fame, such as Art Spiegelman, who contributed art, including a wraparound cover, was interviewed in 2 issues of Cascade, and went on to win a Pulitzer Prize for Maus. I kept all of the interview audio tapes, the highlights of which I plan to digitize and include on the CD ROM. I also have unpublished photos and art from that period to round out the package. Watch this space for updates.
We have a rundown on all the Cascade issues on the pages that follow...
