We’re Moving To Miami

Our entire catalog of comics, zines, graphic novels, prints, greeting cards, buttons, and tote bags are packed up into boxes, and are in transit from Chicago to Miami! We will be apart from these awesome comics for a couple weeks as we and they take separate paths, winding southward from the Midwest to the East Coast.

That means we will be unable to fulfill any orders that come in until August 18. Please feel free to place orders before then, and yours will be one of the first to ship from our new home!

Chicago is a very special place for self-publishers and is a great home for several small-press communities. If you’re into comics-making, zine-shaking, and book-quaking, we highly recommend spending some time in the windy city. We are indebted to far too many people and institutions to name for years of education, mentorship, friendship, and support.

We really look forward to getting to know Miami, its creative communities, and how we can plug into the scene there.

See you soon!

Special thanks to Kenan Rubenstein for drawing the “moving to miami” art!

Animals of Northern Illinois

We’re gigantic fans of John Porcellino’s King-Cat already, but his latest issue, [No. 77!!] is a real charmer. Fun, wide-eyed stories of close encounters with possums, sightings of cougars (despite government denial of their existence in the area), and caring for frogs and caterpillars will fill your heart with a love for wild life and life in general.

Now’s a great time to order comics like King-Cat No. 77, because Radiator Comics is moving to Miami, Florida! Next month we’re packing up our office, and moving South East, and as you could imagine, the lighter our load, the easier our move will be. In fact, with every order in the month of July, we’ll throw in a free comic (in addition to the free comics we normally include in shipments)! July is our birthday month, and over the past three years, we’ve exhibited at a ton of comics & zine festivals and craft fairs. The amount of events we do inevitably leads wear and tear on some copies of the comics we carry. We’re passing these -totally readable- comics to you this month. No matter the size of the order,we’ll include an extra comic (that has the added historical value of having been well-handled by Radiator Comics staff!) from our catalog -including some out of stock titles!

Order some comics today!

Upgrade Soul vol 3

We have come to expect great things from Ezra Claytan Daniels, and his skills as a science fiction comics maker. We are so excited to add the third and final volume of his series, Upgrade Soul to our catalog! This volume is full of mysteries, strange theories, machinations, exciting twists, and an ending that will leave you in suspense until the last page.

This volume doesn’t officially debut until June 10th, when Ezra will be exhibiting at the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo, but you can get copies early through Radiator Comics! We also have plenty of copies of volumes 1 & 2, and we strongly recommend picking them all up!

Going Places

Mike Centeno’s new issue of his Futile series debuted at TCAF earlier this month, and now we have it! Whether its a tyrannical despot who is escaping earth after making it inhospitable (and taking all of his inhospitable qualities with him), or the author himself feeling caught in between a his biological home and his adopted home, Futile comics deals with themes of finding a home away from home!

Mike will be exhibiting at the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo June 10 & 11th!

Penina Gal
Orbiting by Penina Gal

Satellites of Love

Penina Gal debuted Orbiting at this past week’s Toronto Comics Art Fest, and now it’s available on Radiator Comics for those of us who couldn’t make it to TCAF!

This comic is heafty! 60 pages, full of lush risograph inks, and loaded with an emotional, poetic story about friendship, loneliness, depression, and support. We strongly encourage you to pick up this significant comic by Penina.

If you missed TCAF, but want to get Orbiting from Penina in person, they’ll be at the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo in less than a month!
