Time for the twelfth installment of Steven Weissman's in-progress pages from "Blue Jay," an epic 32-page story from Chocolate Cheeks, the next collection of the Yikes! gang's adventures. In this week's episode: Oh Elzie Crisler, so cute and yet so bad!
And guess what? You no longer have to be registered and logged in to read our webcomics (though we still encourage you to sign up)! We've decided that we want to share the fun with everyone. Why now? Because starting Monday we'll be bringing you (drum roll)...
...daily (Mon.-Fri.) installments of Rocky, the hilarious smash-hit Swedish comic strip by Martin Kellerman beloved by everyone from Eurocomics über-aficionados like our own Kim Thompson to world-famous rap mega-star 50 Cent (no fooling)!
Meanwhile, if you haven't been able to read "Blue Jay" until now, you can catch up on past installments on Steven's blog. Enjoy!
This exhibit opens tomorrow evening at 6PM at scott eder gallery in Brooklyn and includes work by a slew of Ignatz Series fumettisti including series founder/co-publisher Igort (Baobab), Marco Corona (Reflections), Gabriella Giandelli (Interiorae), Gipi (Wish You Were Here), and Lorenzo Mattotti (Chimera) along with other greats. More info and online preview right here. Another must-see!
While going through some of Craig Yoe's comic books here at the office I came across a particularly great example of the old pulp coloring. Why they didn't bother to just build the entirety of the suit's black color with cyan I don't know... (That's a Boody Rogers comic page.)
UPDATE: "Jacob, Man, you and Frank Santoro should have a blog where you just say stuff that doesn't make sense to anyone." - Tom Devlin.
Response to our free signed bookplate offer has been so great, we're replenishing our limited quantities when and where we can. We've just restocked Dash Shaw (shown above) and some Dan Clowes, and more are hopefully on the way soon. Click here for the full selection.
(Disclaimer: Signature plates are limited in quantity and available only while supplies last. In the event that we run out, signature plates will not be backordered. Bookplates are not available separately from their respective books and are only available to individual consumers.)
A smart idea from the mind of Ray: Little books that act like arts grants.
If you make real money for a living I don't know why you wouldn't buy a Coffee Money Zine. You will get bored with your new gadgets.
From Ray: "The purchase of a CMZ pays for one month's worth of coffee, and allows me to loiter in the coffee shop from 7 - 8:30 a.m. every weekday while I practice writing. CMZ sponsors get 30 days of little drawings, some good, some not, much like my own notebooks. The concept for each one is different.
For the inaugural CMZ, the idea was to just put pencil to paper and draw, without any pre-concieved idea. Which, you know. Not always a huge success, but sometimes, fine."
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
