SPX 2014- N again!
This weekend I’ll be back in my regular spot at SPX, N1-N2 with Greg Means, Alec Longstreth, and Jason Shiga! You’ll find us just inside the ticket entrance, where we’ve been the past four or five years now.
If you haven’t picked up a copy of Cute Girl Network yet, Greg & I will also be doing a signing at the First Second Booth Sunday at 4:30 at E-5. We also have copies at our table, along with this year’s Free Comic Book Day Free Book, Runner, Runner. Joe Flood will be at home hanging out with his baby and maybe working on our next collaborative project, but we’ll send him your regards if you stop by!
Also, the awesome Jonathan Hill (YES, THAT Jonathan Hill, the one who drew Americus) is working on a really cute kids book about animals who do construction. The Kickstarter page is here!
As a wee babby I found a minicomic in the back of Jim Hanley’s that looked like nothing else & was merely some printed out pages stapled together on the side. It was called Malinky Robot and is buried in a box somewhere in the closet, and was drawn by Sonny Liew & was penciled & beautiful. It pretty much ensured I’ve picked up everything else Sonny did that I could get my hands on. For years I bought up every copy of the My Faith In Frankie trade that I found used and gave it to friends regardless of whether or not they were comic readers. (And they always loved it. Although it shoulda been in color like the issues were.) I was really pleased to read the Green Shadow, because Sonny’s art just makes a good story so much better.
Also Gene’s good too.
