Hey hey! Marissa Falco joins the Radiator family, and pushes our title count over the 100-mark! Marissa’s zines are an amazing ray of sunshine that will inspire you to look appreciate any moment you find yourself in, and hopefully write a loved one a letter about it! I’m really excited to have her zines in the Radiator catalog!
Also! Also! Also!
Congratulations to Sam Sharpe for his Ignatz Award nomination! The Ignatzes are kind of like the IFC Spirit Awards. They’re a lesser-known -but quite possibly the most coveted- comics award, given out at the Small Press Expo in September. Sam received an Outstanding Story nomination for “Mom,” his account about growing up with a parent who has schizophrenia. If you’d like to read it, you can pick it up in Viewotron No. 2!
ETA, Best American Comics! Bleeding Cool just announced the lineup for this year’s Best American Comics volume, which will include an excerpt of Sam’s “Mom” story! Way to go, Sam!!
Radiator Comics will be having a launch party a week from today at the ChiPRC! Caroline Picard and Marian Runk will be reading their comics **OUT LOUD** and I’ll say a few words too. Snacks! Fun! Surprises! 7pm August 26th, at 858 N. Ashland Avenue, Chicago! Facebook Event here.
See you soon!
