Your Black Friend by Ben Passmore

A Fabulous Return!

Last weekend, we had the privilege of tabling next to Penina Gal and Betsey Swardlick at RIPE! They are two of the most fun folks making minicomics these days. They are full of positive energy, they make great comics and they also know where to find really good baked goods in Providence.

Today we are stoked to add Penina & Betsey’s new issue of Glamera to our catalog! The half-glam-rock-star/half-kaiju-monster is back, and defending their GLAMESSENCE from five ghosts known as the GLAMURAI! You don’t want to miss this fabulous chapter!

We’re also excited to add the new full-color version of Ben Passmore’s comic, Your Black Friend to our catalog! Published by Silver Sprocket Bicycle Club, this new version is pretty much the same as the original, though laid out in a letter-digest format, and now saturated in the vibrant colors Ben is known for!

Comics festivals are a fun way to expose yourself to new comics, and an excellent opportunity to meet comics artists! Some Radiator artists will be hitting the road this weekend to start their festival calendars, they may even be in your neck of the woods!

Reid Psaltis will be exhibiting this weekend at the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, WA. Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, The Rhode Island Independent Publishing Expo (or RIPE) will be taking place at the Providence Public Library. They’ll be hosting many great artists including six folks we distro:
Dave Ortega
