Spit and a Half
From 1992-2000, Spit and a Half was one of the original zine distros, distributing mostly small press comics, but also some non-comics zines and music. At its peak, Spit and a Half published zine collections by artists besides Porcellino, including Jeff Zenick, Tom Hart, and Jenny Zervakis, as well as functioning as a record label, releasing CDs, cassettes, and 7" vinyl records by bands such as The Felt Pilotes and The Canannes, which featured zinester David Nichols.
In the 1990's, the Spit and a Half distro played an important role in elevating the respect "mini-comics" received from the more mainstream comics world.
In 2000, Porcellino ceased running Spit and Half as a distro/label, and re-focused mainly on self-publishing King-Cat.
