Beaches, Bars, and Birds by Marian Runk

Life Lived in Pictures

This week we add two great new titles by two great comics artists!

The fourth chapter of Melissa Mendes’ The Weight is now available! Borrowing memorable moments from her grandfather’s life, Melissa crafts the life of tom-boy Edie as she deals with problems at home, and mischief at school. Melissa captures small moments of both sorrow and joy with an amazing attention to detail.

Marian Runk’s collection of sketches, Beaches, Bars and Birds is a wonderful assortment of observations from her life. Sources of inspiration include a cruise in the Mediterranean, drinking alone at bars, and watching birds!

Missouri! Ohio! This weekend there are some great events you’ll want to visit if you can! Continue reading

Heroics! Mythological Creatures! Farts! Oh my.

It’s always a good day to get your hands on Shawn Cheng’s well-crafted minicomics and zines, and this week we’ve got THREE new ones! In King of Stink, Whiskey Jack and Kid Coyote -the main characters in the Would-Be Bridegrooms- are back, attempting to woo the huntress. This time, they try to defeat a vulgar skunk! Fart and poop jokes abound! If that doesn’t tickle your-juvenile humor enough, Shawn’s Hercules Counts to XII and Lamentations of Ridiculous Creatures are 1-2-3 and A-B-C zines respectively, and were the most popular item on our table at the Chicago Zine Fest last weekend.

What I’m saying is DON’T SLEEP ON THESE! They’re moving fast.

Shawn also restocked copies of his amazing minicomics, The Suitor and The Would-Be Bridegrooms, which had both sold out here.

We’ll have all of Shawn’s comics at the… Continue reading

Radiator week two!

Hey! Welcome back!

Radiator Comics is really excited to announce the addition of works by Marnie Galloway! She’s an amazing artist, and her stories are extremely imaginative. In the Sounds and Seas is her major work (she recently announced she is half-way through drawing the second volume). Had this comic been around when I was a kid, it’s the type of comic that would have been a huge influence on me. Its art is outstanding and memorable, and the ideas within it are mind-blowing. If you have a young reader in your life, I would strongly recommend you pick this book up for them.
