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!
While out on walks, we love pointing out spiny orb weavers who have set up webs between plants! I’m sure there are tons of these little spiders we miss on our walks. But if you’re thinking about the comic arts journal we’re producing, we’ve set up a way you’ll never miss and issue! The Spiny Orb Weaver Subscription covers the three issues we have scheduled featuring brand new comics by Miss Jaws, Drew Lerman, and Jamila Rowser!
Issue Two, featuring Drew’s comic, plus a comic by Chris López, and an essay by Rob Clough is at the printer as we write this! We can’t wait to get it in your hands, and subscribers will be the first to receive copies (y’know, after Drew, Chris and Rob do)! Subscribers also get a deep discount on postage!
