Introducing Sun and Sand Comic Anthology

We’re so excited to have teamed up with Black Josei Press to publish a free comics anthology featuring comics by South Florida cartoonists about the region, its people, its environment, and its food!

Sun and Sand Comic Anthology was published to coincide with Free Comic Book Day. The physical national event has been postponed, but we’ve published the anthology online today for everyone to read! You can read the comics on the site, or download a PDF, visit https://sunsandcomics.wordpress.com

Print copies will be distributed for free later this year to coincide with the rescheduled Free Comic Book Day.

This 28-page anthology features ten new comics by Neil Brideau, P. C. de la Cruz, Jessica Garcia, Jayro Lantigua, Drew Lerman, Isai Oviedo, Miriam Rae-Silver, Jamila Rowser, Estrella Vega, and Carina Vo (cuhreenah)!

The print version was printed by KSY Press, and a portion of the funding was made possible by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation through their Knight Arts Challenge.

We’re Back!

We’re so happy to have completed out travels around the Midwest, and are back in hot and humid Miami! We’re hitting the ground running with a new comic from Sage Coffey, Wine Ghost Gets a Bathbomb! Sage has perfectly distilled the mixed emotions a lot of us feel when they decide to stay in instead of going out, as well as those when one is out, and really just wants to go home.

Well…we would recommend staying in and reading Sage’s new comic! There! We figured it out for you!

We are back!

I really wish I didn’t have to ever post a “we’re back” announcement on the Radiator Comics website, but here we are! After the whirlwind of a festival CAKE was in June, we almost immediately started packing our bags to move to sunny (and hot and humid) Miami, Florida! And just as we were unpacking our boxes, and getting Radiator back up and running, we had to load up our car, and head north to avoid the historic hurricane Irma! Miami and our tiny corner of it fared very well, and our thoughts are with people in Houston and especially Puerto Rico and other Caribbean Islands hit hard by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, José and Maria.

We are really happy to be back doing what we love to do, spreading the word about fantastic self-published comics like Isabella Rotman’s latest minicomic, Long Black Veil! Based on a folk song from the 60’s, Isabella has recruited singer/songwriter Jenny Owen Youngs to help put her own unique spin on the murder ballad. Of course it’s a great little nugget from Isabella, and it’s enhanced by an accompanying cover of the song by Jenny, which can be heard/seen on her website here.

The Small Press Expo was last weekend, which marked the start of a busy season for us! Continue reading
