When you hang out with other comics artists, the question “have you read anything good lately?” comes up a lot. Goodbye by Ben Passmore was a minicomic that came up among a number of friends over the past year, with exclamations of agreement as to its superb quality! What followed would be an exasperated attempt to articulate into words why it was such a good comic. Great art can be identified by its ability to articulate through its medium ideas that can’t just be articulated through words. In that regard, Goodbye is the cream of the crop.
We were heartbroken when our supply of Goodbye ran out, and Ben told us he too was out. But we were then rejuvenated by the news that Record Label, Silver Sprocket would be reprinting it as a tiny little book! What luck! And now it’s in our hands, and we can place it in yours. So what are you waiting for? Get this killer comic, and then throw your hands up in frustration when you can’t explain to your friends why it’s so dang good!
Education opportunities after the jump…
John Porcellino reached a new milestone in his comics-making life: the 75th issue of King-Cat Comics & Stories! We’re pleased as punch to carry this issue, which chronicles the life of John’s long-time cat-companion, Maisie Kukoc.
So iconic to minicomics, for a while Maisie had an award named after her. This comic tells the entire story of how John came to live with and care for a black cat with a wild and endearing personality, and the friendship that developed! You should pick it up today!
Also! Sam Sharpe’s critically-acclaimed Viewotron No. 2 is back in print! We teamed up with Sam to reprint this moving memoir about growing up with a mother who has schizophrenia. You can order it from us today!
Hey hey! Marissa Falco joins the Radiator family, and pushes our title count over the 100-mark! Marissa’s zines are an amazing ray of sunshine that will inspire you to look appreciate any moment you find yourself in, and hopefully write a loved one a letter about it! I’m really excited to have her zines in the Radiator catalog!
This week Radiator Comics is excited to welcome Jessica Campbell & Aaron Renier to the Radiator Comics roster with their endearing comic, Sylvia Leeds! We’ve also got a new offering from Trubble Club, Bodblestein, which is a collection of 18 figures you can mix-and-match into different exquisite corpses.
