I can’t think of an odder pair of new comics to add to Radiator Comics than the works of Leslie Perrine and Trubble Club. Coming out of the zinester community, Leslie makes sad comics dripping with the hope of a better tomorrow. Trubble Club, on the other hand is a super-star studded collective of Chicago-based comics artists who get together on a weekly basis and draw collaborative comics about the grossest subjects possible! Both artists’ comics are fun to read, and I hope you’ll check them out.
ALSO (cue bugle), Kenan Rubenstein -whose comics can be found on this site and whose design work is this site) has launched a new comics community site, Festival Season! Currently mostly a comics review/essay/festival recap site, Kenan has plans to implement more of a community aspect, in which comics creators can promote themselves and readers can connect with them. It’s super rad, and I’m thrilled to contribute reviews to the site. You should check it out. Kenan’s got some smart-ee-pants writing for the site, and it’s only going to get better from here.
