Bash Magazine

I’ve been meaning to post about BASH! – a new, free, all comics monthly newspaper that’s being distributed through newsboxes in the Washington DC area.  I think it’s a great idea and I’m glad someone is trying it. 

But… (always something right?) this isn’t how I would do it. They are using a large variety of formats and differing length comics in it with most of it having an "indy" vibe and a looser feel to it.  There is also no real thematic or sectional organization to the paper.  I would think you’d want some organizational separation of gag, story and editorial comics with a mix of more commercial, accessible work amongst more challenging work.  Still there’s good stuff in there and they seem to have ads to run.
