We’re happy to welcome Allison C.M. to a growing list of cartoonist whose comics Radiator Comics distributes! Allison was one of the first cartoonists we met when we moved to Miami, and we think you’re really going to love her minicomic, Mae and Bean!
Next Saturday, April 24 at 3:00pm EDT we’re hosting Sage Coffey as they talk about managing an accessible and sustainable minicomics practice. They’ll specifically be talking about tabling at festivals and pricing your work! RSVP for the event at https://forms.gle/4L6BWjP3kNnCdBvbA
I honestly felt the same excitement picking up issue ten of Melissa Mendes’ series, The Weight as I did picking up the first. Throughout the series, Melissa has focused on small moments in nature, individual emotions, and familial bonds. Issue 10 is a real whopper of a story, and not to be missed!
It’s a new comic from Ashley Robin Franklin! That Full Moon Feeling, published by Silver Sprocket is a really fun rom com between a witch and werewolf that’s both lighthearted a full of heart! Grab a copy before it grabs yooooooouuuuuuuu!
April is a busy month for us, with tons of events! They’re all free and all good.
Oh! We’re so excited to share the second issue of our comic arts journal, Spiny Orb Weaver! This issue features a Snake Creek comic “Head Trip” by Drew Lerman, in which Roy and Dav take the strange Head On A Stone for a boat ride in the ocean! Spiny Orb Weaver editor Neil Brideau then interviews Drew about his writing and drawing and his affection for comic strips and humor of all sorts (also added this week is Drew’s humor minicomic, Schtick, the perfect companion to add to your order)
Chris López provides a comic about Miami Beach and his family’s frequent visits there. Rob Clough rounds out the issue with an essay about growing up in Miami and his exposure to arts and culture in the area!
We’re really happy for you to check it out! Don’t forget Issue One with Miss Jaws and Tana Oshima too! There’s one more issue of Spiny Orb Weaver on its way in this first batch. If you want a subscription to all three, or just the newer two, we can arrange that! Subscribers receive new issues before anyone else, and they get discounts on postage!
We’re excited to add the work of another recipient of the 2020 MICE Mini-Grant to our catalog! Sam Grinberg’s comics are full of misfit middle schoolers clawing their way through social pressures. If you want to relive the nihilistic jaded attitudes of your teen years, Scumburbia and its companion zine, On a Hot Summer Night I Like to Eat My Favorite Cartoon Characters are for you!
