The Cute Boy Alert tour featuring Simon Hanselmann, Michael DeForge and Patrick Kyle is snaking its way across the misnomered Northwest! They find themselves in Minneapolis, MN at home in Boneshaker Books for an opulent signing of epic proportions. Starting at 5pm on Thursday October 2nd, you can find them in the well-lit brick business or as Boneshaker puts it "star cartoonists talking about cartooning and signing cartoons."
Did you know that Boneshaker is COMPLETELY run by volunteers?! Opening back in January 2011, Boneshaker Books is a radical & progressive bookstore located in the Seward neighborhood of Minneapolis. They specialize in "progressive/radical literature, children's books, and a curated fiction section. Purchase in our store or place a special order online for pickup.

This weekend, October 4th and 5th, Boston's going to host it's annual indie comics party masquerading as a comics show! The Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICExpo) is being held at University Hall at 1815 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge's Porter Square. The event is free, family friendly, and offers a weekend of activities as the Boston area's only show dedicated to independent and alternative comics. Our own Paul Hornschemeier is a special guest and even designed the poster! He'll be on the Atrium level, table 31. MICE even conducted a pre-con interview
Paul is also on a Saturday panel from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM "MICE special guests Raina Telgemeier, Emily Carroll and Paul Hornschemeier will discuss their processes in turning disparate comics material into published graphic novels. Each of these creators has worked in various formats: webcomics, serialization, anthologies. The panel will look at how the specific themes and qualities of their work come into play as short stories or serialized narratives come together into single books, exploring the definition of the term 'graphic novel.'"
Saturday, October 4th, 10 am - 6 pm, and Sunday, October 5th, 11 am - 4 pm at Lesley University in Porter Square. Be there! For more information visit the MICE website.

One of the best parts of Austin, Texas is its extreme love for good art and great design. Whether it's a local band playing, new shirt shop or the annual Flatstock or Mondo, the boutique line from Alamo Drafthouse, there is a lot of good stuff on hand. But NOW the aforementioned Mondo is having its own con! And guess who's going to be there? Our great pals, Secret Headquarters!
The Daves and Julie of Secret Headquarters sent us some sweet photos of some of the prints they are carrying including the Winsor McCay print called When Black Death Rode (with a horse face detail).
A Jaime Hernandez shirt, print and one beautiful Jon Vermilyea patch. You can check out their other goods on the site OR just hustle on over to Mondo Con this Saturday and Sunday!
If anything is left over they will be put online in the near future, so by Satan's cloven hoof SHQ better only sell 99 of those pizza patches.
