Smoke Signal 8
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Tim LanePaul KarasikLilli CarréLeslie SteinGabrielle Bell 1 Apr 2011 3:17 PM

Smoke Signal 8 - cover by Lilli Carré

Here comes another all-star issue of the always-awesome Smoke Signal from Desert Island! This one's a split issue with the Finnish comics newspaper Kuti so there's sure to be some great stuff to discover by the Finns. Above, the cover by Lilli Carré (the flip cover is by Aapo Rapi); inside you'll find stories and strips by Sami Aho, Gabrielle Bell, Marc Bell, Lilli, Michael DeForge, Roope Eronen, Glynnis Fawkes, Nathan Gelgud, Sam Henderson, Keith Jones, Paul Karasik, Ina Kallis, Tim Lane, Jarno Latva-Nikkola, Blaise Larmee, Mikko Luostarinen, David Mazzucchelli, Jesse McManus, Tommi Musturi, Jyrki Nissinen, Jaakko Pallasvuo, Ville Pirinen, Aapo Rapi, Ron Regé Jr., Anna Sailamaa, Kari Sihvohnen, Avi Spivak, Leslie Stein, Janne Tervamäki, Petteri Tikkanen, Jari Vaara, Amanda Vähämäki, and Mikko Väyrynen.

As always, it will be available for free at Desert Island in Brooklyn (and probably at the MoCCA Fest and presumably somewhere in Finland?) — elsewhere you can order a copy for a measly 3 bucks here.

The Art of Tim Lane at SHQ
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Tim LaneOriginal Art 9 Feb 2011 7:17 AM

  

Secret Headquarters in Los Angeles is showcasing original art from Tim Lane's Fantagraphic book ABANDONED CARS. SHQ customers will know Tim's work from the awesome bags he designed for them. From SHQ's press release, here's Tim's statement: 

This collection of original comic pages depict my first experience freight train hopping, and are from the story SPIRIT in ABANDONED CARS. They are my favorite pages in the book, mainly because they represent a past experience that changed my life. Since I drew them a decade after the initial experience, they required a great deal of research to depict accurately, since the details of the locations were no longer fresh in my mind. To make sure that those details were accurate, I traveled back to all the relevant locations in an attempt to insure the authenticity of the story. To my great relief, things hadn't changed much since 1995, and it turned out that geography and architecture proved that my memory was in pretty good working order - my recollections hadn't become embellished too much over time.

This is the only story in ABANDONED CARS that is completely autobiographical, a form with which I don't feel very comfortable, and for that reason SPIRIT is atypical. But I think it serves an important purpose in the greater context of ABANDONED CARS because it places me among the cast of characters portrayed in the other short story selections. I hope you enjoy the original drawings from that story.

This picture (above) was taken in 1995, around the same time SPIRIT took place. Here I was in the Mission in San Francisc on Florida Street. At the time, I had been casing the West Oakland Yards (jumped only once but the train aborted to a sidetrack, where I spent a very cold night sleeping on the floor of a metal boxcar). Around this time I gave up freight hopping after reading and article in the San Francisco Chronicle about Robert Silveria, Jr, the hobo serial killer, who had recently been caught in the Bay area. He'd killed something like fourteen people along the rails, and murdered their dogs, if they had them, as well. One bad dude, no question.
