Zomoid Illustories was a series of mini-comics published by Ray Zone. Over 50 were published and contained the work of everyone from "alienated 15-year-olds in Arcadia, California to top-flight pro cartoonists working pseudonymously." Although Ray Zone is known primarily for his 3-D work, please note that this book is strictly 2-D.
This comic-book sized collection showcases some of the best with work by Gary Panter, Peter Bagge / J.R. Williams, Dennis Worden, Wayno (Wayne Honath), Brian James Riedel (a Hello Kitty lampoon), Jim Shaw, La Puta and "Ran Dum". There's also an article on the series' origins and a three-page Zomoid-specific interview (reprinted from The Comics Journal) with Ray Zone conducted by Dale Luciano.
My experience has been that it's not too easy to find copies of this in great shape, but I don't know why.
