You never can tell where you'll find a comic. Whether it's the tiny little BAZOOKA JOE strip inside of a gum wrapper, a mini-comic that comes with an action figure, a cereal promo, or inside of a magazine that usually doesn't even have comics, they turn up in some unusual places.
For example, the 52 page anthology that comes with WEIRD TALES OF THE RAMONES, a 3 CD + DVD boxed set. The booklet features work from 25 different artists, but for space limitations we're only going to look at a few of them.

One of the untold tales of ZIPPY's past, told by Bill "Griffy" Griffith.

A true life encounter by Mary Fleener.

Some say Johnny Ryan's humor is an acquired taste, others say it's for people with no taste at all. I like it.

A pinup done in a vaguely familiar style, by Wayno.

A dream sequence from Fly.

A nifty two page tale of a young fan, by Steven Weissman.

Matt Groening's signature here is probably as valid as Walt Disney's signature on last month's Donald Duck comic, but hey, it is what it is.

As someone who's had similar experiences trying to collect gum machine figures, I can totally relate to this story by Rick Altergott.

Lastly, true tales of trivia by Xaime Hernandez.
