Oxymore’s Special Fleischer Issue

Oxymore n. 3 Cover

Oxymore n. 3 back cover I just got my copy of the latest issue of the nice little French fanzine, Oxymore, which is a special Fleischer issue, to which I contributed “Max Fleischer & les studios Fleischer.” The other featured piece is Leslie Carbarga’s “L’histoire des Fleischers.” In addition, there is an interview with comic artist Kim Deitch, who talks about animation, including the work of the Fleischer Studios. Oxymore editor David Amram wanted to focus on Fleischer since he felt the studio’s contributions to animation were not really appreciated in France. The issue, which is priced at 10€, can be ordered from the publisher’s website here. Needless to say, I can’t help recommend it.
