APE is this weekend. Can you believe it? For the first time in seven years, I won’t be exhibiting (I’ll be down in MA helping out at Oily Comics); however, you can still buy Poseur Ink books at the show thanks to the fine folks over at Silver Sprocket Bicycle Club.
I’ve known Avi over at Silver Sprocket for a few years now; and I feel really honored to have my books on his table. You can find him at booth 523. He’ll have copies of Side A, Side B, Frankie’s Busy Day, Adventure Story, Horribleville, and Down Where it’s Wetta along with all the terrific Silver Sprocket books.
If you’re looking to get your hands on a copy of Irene #1, I’m pretty sure my pal Andy Warner will have a few at his booth, 408, as well as his terrific self-published work.
As long as you’re visiting friends at the show, don’t forget to visit: Miriam Libiki (booth 218), Vince Riley (booth 312), Alec Longstreth (booth 631), Donna Almendrala (booth 407), Jason Fischer (booth 804), and Juston McKee (booth 610). Have a good weekend, guys. See you on the other side.
I forgot to mention yesterday, we’re also going to have copies of Cartoon Picayune ($4) and The Cartoon Crier (free!) at the Poseur Ink booth at San Diego Comic Con next week. (Table N-12 in Small Press.)
Cartoon Picayune issue #3 is an exploration of true urban stories. First, Darryl Holliday and Erik Nelson Rodriguez take us inside Chicago’s Cook County Jail and show us a very different kind of courthouse wedding in Wedlock: Love and Marriage in The Cook County Jail. Then, Ethan Leners interviews an art student who has something to say, in her own words, about choosing to express one’s self in Julia Vericella: The Girl Who Plays Solitaire. Editor Josh Kramer makes a brief appearance in Two Years Without Plastic Bags with a piece on Washington D.C.’s plastic bag law and the lady who enforces it. Finally, join featured cartoonist and cover artist Andy Warner in The Man Who Built Beirut, as he seeks to unravel the myth of asassinated lebonese billionare-politician Rafik Harari.
The Cartoon Crier is printed on newsprint in the tabloid format, and packed to the brim with morose and melancholic cartoons (old and new) from:
Ivan Brunetti, Patrick McDonnell, James Kochalka, Lynn Johnston, Bill Griffith, Michael Kupperman, Greg and Mort Walker, Anders Nilsen, Brendan Burford, Jim Rugg, Tom Gammill, Jeffrey Brown, Greg Evans, Melissa Mendes, Blaise Larmee, Bil Keane, James Sturm, R. Sikoryak, yours truly, and many other members of the NCS and CCS communities. It’s a sadstravaganza! Gitcher cryin’ pants on and join the pity party!
We’ll have two guest artists with us at San Diego Comic Con next week. Andy Warner from Andysaurus.com and Mike King from MilkMoney.info will both be selling with us this year, out in Small Press. (Andy will also be on the Publishers Weekly Comics World: Serious Pictures: Comics and Journalism in a New Era panel in room Room 32AB at 3pm on Sunday the 15th.)
Andy will have his books: The Creeping Things, The Man Who Built Beirut, and Two Stories.
Mike will have his books: 2,000 Pages #1, Milk Money #1, and Hive Stories #1.
Come check these guys out at Comic Con next week. The Poseur Ink booth, table N-12, in Small Press. (Just straight down the aisle inside the bayside entrance.)
Some of you may recognize these spreads from the children’s book, Frankie’s Busy Day I started for class a few months back. I finally took the time to go back and finish the entire book, it’s now available in the Poseur Ink store.
It has a three-colour silk-screened cover and a full colour interior. It’s 28 pages, limited to 78 copies. All signed and numbered, you can get them for $5 a piece.
We’ll also have my 20-page sampler mini: full of stand-alone comics and illustrations I did over the last few months for $2 a pop. And copies of my 6-page Ed Emberly-inspired comic Adventure Story, for fifty cents a piece.
If you buy all three books: the sampler mini, Frankie’s Busy Day, and Adventure Story, I’ll knock the fifty cents off and package them in this fancy cardigan:
Also included in this fancy package is: a small hand-made notepad with silk-screened cover, a silk-screened sticker, and a 1? button. All for the low, low price of $7. All of these pieces are limited quantities, but will be offered as a set until they run out. The cardigan-packaged bundles will originally be offered exclusively at Comic Con, but any leftovers will be added to the Poseur Ink store after the show.
Artist and writer, Megan Rose Gedris says:
The story of Pearl the mermaid, who has only heard of vaginas in legends, and thinks they sound amazing. After encountering a naked girl on the beach, she becomes determined to get one herself.
It’s both silly and sexy, the best combination as far as I’m concerned. There are lots of different body shapes on all the characters, and everyone in it is very happy to be having all this sex.
It’s $25 for the original – “full color” – style which is in sepia with rosy accents, but you can also get it in greyscale for $20. There are 148 pages in the comic which ran on Filthy Figments. It is the most beautiful book I have put together so far.
These turned out wonderful. They are currently available in the store, for $20 and $25 respectfully. We’ll also have them at at the Poseur Ink booth at San Diego Comic Con next week, July 11th-15th. We’re at booth N-12 in Small Press. Straight down the ailse from the Bayside entrance.
