"Long live MINESHAFT!" -R. Crumb
"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
"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 shit Counter Culture." -Justin Green, author of Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary
"A great, great mag jam-packed with engaging verve." -Monte Beauchamp, Editor of Blab!
"That magazine is a bonafide, world-of-comics treasure; a new issue is a celebratory moment." -Tom Spurgeon, critic and writer, The Comics Reporter
"Loved the latest Mineshaft... You're singlehandedly keeping the spirit of the old 'Underground' alive & well!" -Bill Griffith, author of the daily comic strip Zippy
