Do you like comics and zines and art and deals and steals and snacks and chats? Do you like fun things to do on a Sunday afternoon? If so, check out this Comics Party Yard Sale I’m attending at my pals Doug(las) & Lauren’s place on August 25th!
Heroes, I’ve done a terrible jobs of updating this website aside from randomly updating the header at some point. Seriously, the FOURTH issue of my FIVE-issue Image Comics mini-series ERRAND BOYS is out next week, and I’ve yet to mention the comic on my website. No wonder it’s so far under the radar the radar isn’t sure it exists! It’s maybe my favorite comic I’ve written, though, and I sure would love if folks would read it!
…and I’ll be there at Artist Alley table L32 as part of The Comic Bug Pavilion!
Joining me at my table will be cartoonist Douglas Gauthier (pronounced “heysoupface“). He’ll have his zines, and I’ll have THE AMELIA COLE OMNIBUS, NEVER ENDING, THE BIGGER / BIGGEST BANG(s) for selling and signing– and a special free comic with each purchase!
In addition to the artist alley fun, I’ll be on a couple of panels:
Are you an independent comic book creator frustrated that your local comic shop doesn’t seem interested in carrying your comic book or supporting your career? Are you a comic shop owner feeling pressure from local creators to carry their self-published dreams when you have so many other bigger issues to worry about? Believe it or not, these two elements offer up a tremendous opportunity for SYNERGY! This can be a win win for BOTH of you and our panel of both comic shop owners AND creators will tell you how they’ve navigated themselves into a relationship of mutually assured SUCCESS! BRAVE NEW WORLD (Newhall, CA) owner Andy Liegl, HI DE HO COMICS owner Eddie DeAngelini, ASPEN COMICS Editor-In-Chief Vince Hernandez, Editor/Writer Barbara Kesel and Writer D.J. Kirkbride will be joined by THE COMIC BUG’s Mike Wellman in an insightful, progressive and problem-solving conversation on how YOU can get your books on the shelves of some of your favorite comic shops and how to help make your store enthusiastic to support! If you’re a local creator in the LA area, this is not a panel to miss!
