We’re thrilled to welcome Vicko Alvarez to the roster of artists we distro by adding her latest comic, Rosita Gets Scared, and its Spanish edition, Rosita Se Asusta to our catalog! Vicko’s comic is an engaging and empathic comic and activity book about an child who is undocumented, and the fear she feels about other people’s reactions to her immigration status. It’s a great resource for young readers to express how they feel, and think about how others feel as well.
We were lucky enough to have Vicko hang out at our table at Cartoon Crossroads Columbus, where she had some wonderful prints. She talked to us a little bit about her future plans for comics, and we can’t wait to read them and get them into your hands!
This Saturday, November 3rd in Seattle, the annual independent comics and art festival, Short Run, will take place! We loved our visit to Short Run last year, and are tremendously jealous of everyone who will walk through their doors this year. If you’re going, be sure to visit Whit Taylor, who is a Special Guest this year, as well as Ashley Robin Franklin, Ben Passmore, Greg Means, Kazimir Strzepek, and Liz Prince who are all exhibiting in the city of rain [that’s its nickname right?]!
