The Seattle-based cartoonist group the Bureau of Drawers have assembled online in their blog and meet every Wednesday for a drink 'n' draw at Seattle's Cafe Racer, and now they've taken their partnership one step further with a new quarterly comic anthology they're giving away free online.
Titled The Bureau Of Drawers Quarterly, the anthology is edited by member Jon Morris and features comics and illustrations by Morris and fellow members Amanda Robinson, Marc Palm, Adam Waton, Scott Faulkner, Steve VanBronkhorst, Breanne Boland, Sarah Taylor, Adam Eivy, Carl Nelson and Nikki Burch. Available only through digital means, this free comic anthology (available in CBR, PDF and ePub formats) has already garnered the attention of Seattle's The Stranger, calling it proof of a vibrant Seattle comics scene.
The group are already working on their second volume, tentatively due out in June 2012. Here's a sample of what's in the free first issue:
