“Bizarre to a level that normal instruments cannot accurately register it.”

August 3, 2010 by  


Houston draws like the deranged love child of Ralph Steadman and Kevin O’Neill and writes like Bob Burden after a particularly substance-filled long weekend with Hunter S. Thompson; Elephant Man will be published by NBM, and there’s no way that anything stranger will be on your local shelves at that point.”

Miran Kim (who did the X-Files comics covers for Topps and recently a spoof of Twilight in Tales from the Crypt 8), was nice enough to send some great pictures she took:

Legendary Ron Turner of Last Gasp came by to sit with us for a bit at the Papercutz booth. That’s me with him.

Back to the dinner (see last post):

San Diego: work and party

July 29, 2010 by

San Diego is an exhausting experience but thrilling oftentimes as well.  It’s great to hear from fans about their excitement on certain series or even to hear ‘what a great publishing company you are!” For all the hard work, such compliments are music to my ears. Also, many of our authors that we publish we first started talking to at this show, from Geary to Shane White.

And so, every year, we celebrate our authors in a dinner get together where we all unwind and have a good time together.

Here from right to left is Rick Geary with wife and friend, Ted Rall. On the other side Mark Badger.

And here from left to right: Miran Kim, Badger and son. The other side: Patrick Turner, our booth mgr., Stephanie McMillan, Ted Rall, Geary facing away and co.

One you can barely see in the top picture behind Miran is Sean Michael Wilson, who just did AX, alternative manga at Top Shelf and is about to do with  us Story of Lee. He’s a Scot living in Japan. You can imagine the stories he regaled us with in his rich accent.

And now back to the daily task of getting out those books you want from us and see you at the next show (SPX in Washington in September where this time I plan to attend, hadn’t been able to in a few years).

Newsarama on Boneyard

July 28, 2010 by  


“Suffused with geeky humor and high adventure, well drawn, and emotionally real, Boneyard v.7 concludes Michael and Abbey’s story, but Richard Moore remains a comics creator to watch, and Boneyard stands as a series well worth rereading many times over. ”

San Diego: some pics

July 28, 2010 by  


Some pictures from San Diego last week:

The authors of Networked: Carabella on the Run which we premiered at the show, Gerard Jones and Mark Badger. Talking with Gerry is Sean Michael Wilson of Story of Lee.

A wider view of our booth. Ted Rall and Richard Moore are signing. Moore had to call off coming because he was so sick but finally struggled in on Saturday. Also in the booth, Patrick Turner our booth manager, thanks to Patrick for a terrific job. Further behind is Deborah Pierce of Privacy Activism Organization on hand to help promote the new Networked book.

And there’s our sister company Papercutz who had Papa Smurf going around the show to promote its new series of Smurfs graphic novels this fall. Here he’s posing with Terry Nantier, president of the company.

All in all, however, not a good show, we have to say. The aisles around the indie publishers were sparsely populated for too much of the show. The big budget movies are taking over the show and it felt like indie comics lovers have been turned off to coming. What a shame…
