New Comics Day 8/27/08
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under new releasesNew Comics Day 27 Aug 2008 11:49 AM

After the wallet-busting deluge last week, you might be relieved to know that we have exactly nothing arriving in comics shops today. (We just didn't want to have to go up against Barb Wire Omnibus Vol. 1.)

We do have a couple of new books in stock today for direct orders, though... sit tight...

Arthur on UG Comix
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Rebel VisionsPatrick Rosenkranz 26 Aug 2008 8:51 PM

  

The new issue of the always-worth-checking-out issue of Arthur Magazinefeatures a pretty great three-page review of the new expanded and redesigned softcover edition of Patrick Rosenkranz's Rebel Visions, executed in comics form by Joseph Remnant, a very talented young cartoonist I expect we'll be hearing more of. The mag is available for free all over the place, but you can also read a 2-part, downloadable PDF version available on their homepage. The strip starts on page 21 of the first PDF and page one of the second. 

Persoff Pisses Off the Squares
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Untagged  26 Aug 2008 3:02 PM

Cartoonist Ethan Persoff has created a Tijuana Bible, presented as a replica of a prophetic 1934 comic from Lieberman's Lil' Squeezer Books, starring Bush & Cheney for the Democratic National Convention. All we can say is, right on.

These real estate signs have become more and more ubiquitous in the Fanta HQ neighborhood. I saw one just yesterday across the street from Clowes Hardware, on my way to Cafe Woodring. (Thanks to Jen for the pic!)
