R. Crumb's Dream Diary & Sketchbook Mineshaft #27 Robert Crumb Mint For Sale
"Mining the depths for unpredictable visual and literary ore!"
"Long live MINESHAFT!" -R. Crumb
"Reading Mineshaft, I am conscious of its authenticity. I imagine that in future issues there may be ads for futons and hookahs; someday there may even be an online version. In the meantime it's one of the few true print vehicles around that carries the smokey torch of the disavowed, disenfranchised, lapsed, subsumed and beat to sh*t Counter Culture." -Justin Green, author of Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary
"Mineshaft is one of the best kept secrets of the magazine world. ...You'll find in its pages some of the most uncompromising artist/cartoonists and writers working today." -Andrei Codrescu, The Exquisite Corpse
"For me MINESHAFT contains a message of personal healing, a feeling of belonging to a community of artists who express their feelings about life with love, honesty, humility, and humor." -William Crook, Jr.
"What you are doing, which is so important, is using QUALITY art. Mineshaft is like a quiet little beacon of laser creativity that continues to burn with a purpose." -Mary Fleener
"That magazine is a bonafide, world-of-comics treasure; a new issue is a celebratory moment." -Tom Spurgeon, critic and writer, The Comics Reporter
"A great, great mag jam-packed with engaging verve." -Monte Beauchamp, Editor of Blab!
"I received the latest edition of Mineshaft and loved every page and had a discussion with Robert [Crumb] how the really good literature that is out there these days is very limited and how we both agreed how great Mineshaft is - It would be a crime if you stop production... We both don't understand how these terrible fanzines do OK, and people pass over Mineshaft which is one of the best mags out there... We love it, and hope that you will continue to print it... I could not put it down and read it from front to back... Thank you so much for the entertainment" -Alex Goldsmith, France
"You're singlehandedly keeping the spirit of the old Underground alive & well!" -Bill Griffith, author of the daily comic strip Zippy
