Beaches, Bars, and Birds by Marian Runk

Life Lived in Pictures

This week we add two great new titles by two great comics artists!

The fourth chapter of Melissa Mendes’ The Weight is now available! Borrowing memorable moments from her grandfather’s life, Melissa crafts the life of tom-boy Edie as she deals with problems at home, and mischief at school. Melissa captures small moments of both sorrow and joy with an amazing attention to detail.

Marian Runk’s collection of sketches, Beaches, Bars and Birds is a wonderful assortment of observations from her life. Sources of inspiration include a cruise in the Mediterranean, drinking alone at bars, and watching birds!

Missouri! Ohio! This weekend there are some great events you’ll want to visit if you can!


This weekend Radiator Comics will be at Cartoon Crossroads Columbus, an amazing festival, featuring extensive programming, multiple marketplaces, and tons of surprises! Cara Bean will be joining us at our table, and we’ll also be co-debuting three titles by Marnie Galloway: Particle/Wave (published by So What? Press), Burrow, and an accompanying zine, Nest! We say it’s a co-debut, because Marnie will be debuting the books herself at the St. Louis Small Press Expo! She’ll also be participating in a performative reading at the STLSPExpo Kickoff you do not want to miss!
