[A] fascinating treasure trove of an anthology... In addition to work by greats like Artie Romero, Rick Geary, and Mary Fleener, and 50 or so others, the book serves as the history of a movement.
[G]orgeous, utterly essential... Newave! is not only an ideal package for such an anthology, it's done an immeasurable service to the comics medium as a whole. Beyond that, it also just might realign your synapses... [Grade: ] A.
If you are a student of the history of sequential art, Newave! feels like a must-have for your collection. It seems to be as perfect of a collection of mini-comix as you could ever find and it is informative as well as entertaining. --Chad Derdowski"
For mini comix collectors and for comics fans in general, Newave! is a historic publication. It s the first time this seminal group of underground artists and their hysterical, dirty, irreverent comix have been featured together in one book. --Heidi Broadhead"
If the clash of ideas in the design of Newave! make the book fizz, it's the mix of melancholy (so many comics drawn into the void!) and triumph (and yet here they are!) that Dowers teases from the subject matter that makes consuming it a satisfying experience. --Tom Spurgeon"
Newave! is a wonderful sampler of what the mini comix of the 1980s where all about. ... Now, at last, Michael Dowers and Fantagraphics have brought those little-known 8-pagers out into the light and given them an appropriate place in comix history. --Richard Krauss"
Taken as a whole, Newave! presents a portrait of an era that might otherwise be overlooked as a vital link between, say, Zap and Eightball. ... a veritable treasure trove of material that would otherwise have been lost to the ages. And, perhaps most importantly, it s a hell of fun read. --Brian Heater"
[C]elebrates the entrepreneurial spirit and youthful energy of the early days of self-publishing. ... Newave! is a valuable overview of an overlooked era. --Garrett Martin"

Newave!: The Underground Mini Comix of the 1980's is a gigantic collection of the best small press cartoonists to emerge in the 1970s after the first generation of underground cartoonists (such as R. Crumb and Art Spiegelman) paved the way. These cartoonists, inspired by the freewheeling creative energy of the underground commix movement, began drawing and printing their own comics. The most popular format was an 8 ½" x 11" sheet, folded twice, and printed at local print shops on letter-size paper; because of the small size, they were dubbed "mini comix." By the 1980s they became known as Newave Comix, a term taken from England's Newave rock 'n' roll movement. An explosion of do-it-yourself artists emerged. Many talented artists went onto bigger and better things: others have disappeared. Inspired by the creative freedom of their underground predecessors and unrestrained by commercial boundaries or editorial edicts, their work was particularly innovative and experimental.
