John Porcellino

Winter Harbinger

King-Cat No. 76 came out at the beginning of June, but more than anything it feels like the announcement of the impending fall and winter. John Porcellino’s comics all revolve around the seasons turning colder, to the change in what animals are present when outside, and those January evenings when even the inside of your apartment feels cold. Maybe consider this as preparation for the cold. Maybe in the dead of winter something will remind you of having read this issue, and you’ll remember you picked it up while you were sweating, drinking lemonade, and in some strange way, you’ll be transported back to the summer.

No? OH-KAY! Moving on…

Big Congratulations to Keiler Roberts, who was nominated for an Ignatz Award this past week! Keiler’s series, Powdered Milk (early issues have been collected in the books, Powdered Milk and Miseryland) was nominated for Outstanding Series. The Ignatz Awards are honors given out at the Small Press Expo every year. We’ll be there, hopefully to cheer Keiler on as she wins the award. Fingers crossed!

Add Some Powdered Milk To Your Diet

I’ve been temping in Evanston, IL for the past week and a half, spending time in an office with a sprawling view of one of Chicago’s most notable suburbs. I’ve been traveling the purple line, and went to a film screening at the Northwestern University’s Block Cinema. Total emersion for this week’s addition of Keiler Roberts‘ comics. Keiler lives in Evanston with her husband Scott, their daughter Xia, and their dog Crooky, and that is what Keiler draws comics about.

People who know Keiler’s comics jump at any chance to read something new by her, and the award nominations, speaking engagements and special-guest appearances are starting to add up. Radiator Comics STRONGLY encourages you to check out Keiler’s comics, as they subtly investigate human nature, depression, and what it means to be alive. You will be enriched and amused by Keiler’s Powdered Milk collections, Powdered Milk and Miseryland.
