B.ü.L.b Comix in Switzerland sent us its latest set of publications in its ongoing 2[w] collection: five tiny concertina comics (each measuring just 35x45mm) – by Andy Rementer, Lloyd Dangle, Rutu Modan, Chihoi and Alexandre Joly – housed in a suitably tiny box…

B.ü.L.b Comix has actually been producing tiny format (as well as larger format) comix since 1996 – with each set being printed in just two spot colours with 22 pages or panels. Each of its 2w Box Set releases is stamped with a letter of the alphabet. This new one is W – box set A was published back in 1997. “Only 3 letters to go, a countdown to the end of our publishing adventure,” says B.ü.L.b’s Mathieu – who sent us the box of five tiny comics. “Yes, we’ve been running B.ü.L.b comix since 1996, without any grants and supporting the local printers. B.ü.L.b comix is non-profit making, we don’t get paid, we give books to authors and all money is reused to release new books. DIY freedom!”

Here’s a look at the comics in the new W box set:

Two Trees by Chihoi

The Weasel by Lloyd Dangle

Paysage de mes reves by Alexandre Joly

My Hidden Mental Disorders by Israeli artist Rutu Modan

Jungle Fever by US artist Andy Rementer
