Marnie Galloway’s newest set of comics focus a lot on the connections between family members, and between humans and our natural world. Marnie has been very busy, exploring these themes and publishing FOUR new titles as she became a new mother. We are very proud to present to you her latest comics, which debuted last weekend at the St. Louis Small Press Expo, and Cartoon Crossroads Columbus!
Particle/Wave was published by So What? Press this fall. This is a split minicomic (a story on each side of the publication, each heading toward the center), featuring stories that each revolve around family and the moon. These very personal stories are sober and touching.
Burrow was self-published by Marnie, and focuses on similar themes of familial connections, animal instincts, and their intersection with modern living. But Burrow was written after her son’s birth, whereas Particle/Wave was written before. There is a sense of mystery in one of the stories in Particle/Wave that is replaced by knowledge and wonder in Burrow.
Marnie produced a companion zine to Burrow, called Nest. Which connects to the themes of family well. We hope you enjoy and contemplate Marnie’s new titles as much as we have. We are grateful to Marnie for letting us distribute such strong comics.
We would like to send a huge shout out to the organizers of Cartoon Crossroads Columbus, and congratulate them on an amazing second year of a unique comics festival. We highly recommend everyone reading this to attend CXC 2017 (September 28 – October 1)! Special thanks to Cara Bean for joining us at the Radiator Comics table. If you are in Boston at the end of the month, she’ll be at our table at the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE) along with Kenan Rubenstein, and she’ll be doing work with their slate of programming and workshops that were announced last week!
