Ron Rege Jr's Yeast Hoist Beer (issue 15)
Ron Rege Jr, artist/author (and musician) with his own very unique style of 'Utopian cartoons' and creative mind behind 'The awake field', 'Skibber bye bye' and his own hardcover collection 'Girls against pain' has been putting out visually unique mini comics for quite some time now, and has had his work has been published by Highwater Books, McSweeney's, Fantagraphics, Drawn & Quarterly, and Buenaventura Press. The latest issue of his ongoing minicomic series Yeast Hoist however, is a minicomic with a difference as it hangs from the neck of a luscious Beligium made (although designed by Rege himself) ceramic beer bottle. Due to the nature of this mini comic I can't image you'll be getting it in the UK anytime soon.
