AFFORDABLE AMAZEMENT #1




AFFORDABLE AMAZEMENT CATALOGUE (Now 'New Compact Affordable Amazement') is an irregular European comics anthology edited and designed by Hurk. Rather than building a comic anthology around a theme, this one is built around imaginary products. Contributors are asked to choose an ad from ‘the catalogue’ and feature the product in their story.


Affordable Amazement Catalogue #1 (Fancy Butcher Press, 2014).
40 pages with collaborators Paul O'Connell, Paul Ashley Brown, Tanya Meditzky, Tobias Tak and Chanic.
Six ads from those above, were selected for the stories in issue 1: MASONIC BUFFOON RING, ROYAL WORSHIPPING FIGURINE, FREE LIFE-DRAWING CLASS, REALISTIC TOFF MASK, WORMS KIT, ONYX ROACH REPLICA.



"This eccentric and eye-catching European anthology (Affordable Amazement Catalogue #1) has an underground sensibility but is certainly not limited to one particular aesthetic"
