On the Road to SPX!
It’s been a busy summer, friends. Since leaving Vermont in May, I haven’t been in one place for more than a few weeks at a time. But now I’m back in Montreal, and ready for comics-related action. And the first order of business, now that I’m no longer a transient vagabond, is to pack my bags and hit the road for the Small Press Expo!
I’ll be tabling once again with my good pals Beth Hetland, Pat Barrett, and Josh Kramer. Here’s a selection of my wares:
$10.00, 64 pages, screen printed cover
This new anthology is edited by Andy Warner, dw, and myself. It features work by the three of us, as well as Jon Fine, Rachel Dukes, and Nate Wootters. There’s laughter, tears, and other strange curiosities. Here’s a sample from my new story, Skeletons:
I’ve also put together new editions of some of my past minicomics:
Last Mountain – Issue 0
$5.00, 36 pages, colour cover on gold paper.
Features three short stories I did over the last year. You’ll see everything from disconcertingly invisible enemies, to high school anxiety, to cowboys.
$5.00, 40 pages, colour cover
The story is about a small town, a fracturing family, and a flock of birds whose unusual behaviour permeates and intersects with the lives of the townspeople.
$3.00, 24 pages, colour cover
This comic has been making the rounds since it came out. It made The Comics Journal’s list of The Top 30 Minicomics of 2011, and was nominated for the Gene Day Award for Self-Publishers at this year’s Joe Shuster Awards (which will be happening this very weekend in Montreal while I’m at SPX!).
It’s a story about memory, death, childhood, and cartoon rabbits.
And that’s just one quarter of one table! Now imagine a gigantic room filled with tables, and amazing comics made by wonderful people. It’s going to be a great weekend, friends. Can’t wait to see you there…
