Robb Mirsky was working the checkout at a liquor store when David Craig showed up in his line wearing a Chester Brown t-shirt. The two bonded and Robb invited David to the next Toronto Comic Jam. Taking place the last Tuesday of every month, the jam happens in the back of the Cameron House bar where participants are expected to grab a page and finish the next panel of the night’s various half-started comics. At the end of the night, the pages are collected and that month’s issue is published. It was on one of those nights when Robb and David met James Spencer. The three vibe so well at the Jam they decide to recreate the magic with Read More Comix – a series of surrealist humour comics reminiscent of the underground comix of the 1960s by Robert Crumb, Spain Rodriguez, Kim Deitch and Trina Robbins. At Speech Bubble, the three talk about their individual styles and why they work so well together before promoting their latest sequential experiment, the bookmark sized Tiny Comix.
