Joe Cool
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 22 Sep 2008 10:43 AM

Me on Halloween circa 1986 at the comic book store I worked at in Fountain Valley, CA. Because nothing screams cool like trying to look like a badass in front of a wall of X-Men back issues and a Hulk poster.

Castle Waiting Vol. II #12 by Linda Medley

Castle Waiting Vol. II #12
By Linda Medley

This is the long-awaited special all-bowling issue, as Henry, Dayne, Chess, Tolly, Peace and Simon wage an all-out ninepin war... and it turns out one of them has heretofore unsuspected bowling skills! Like all good sports competitions it's a high-stakes battle to the very last frame. Meanwhile, back in the kitchen, Dinah and Jain pull out more and more dresses from the bottomless trunk and use a not-terribly-resistant Rackham to model them. All this, plus conjectures about what the heck's going on with the mysterious, elusive, and somewhat sinister Dr. Fell.

24-page black & white 6.75" x 10.25" comic book • $3.95

Please Vote Obama
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 18 Sep 2008 6:34 PM

  

My old pal Joe Newton, cartoonist and former Gas Huffer drummer and Stranger art director, just released this new print through Etsy that he and Davin Kuntze created. 

100% of the $20 sale price goes to support the Obama campaign. This is a limited edition letterpress poster, created with 100+ year old woodtype and custom-cast metal type. A real collector's item. The numbered edition is limited to 100 copies, and is printed with oil-based inks on high-quality, heavyweight paper.

Meanwhile, longtime comics editor Pete Friedrich just sent out this image (along with this link):

It should come as no surprise that Fantagraphics is an Obama stronghold.
