Vincent Stall's work was previewed on MPLS.TV -- some of which, like the image to the left, was a re-jiggered version of his upcoming graphic novel Things You Carry which we will be launching at Gallery CO this October 9th, which is a Sunday. He will also have a ton of drop-dead fucking gorgeous screen prints available at the show. That large bulge of bills in your pants is going to want to buy a few of 'em so be sure to stop by and pick up his new comic!
In other news, Metro Magazine is running a promo in collaboration with the Twin Cities Zine Fest, giving away a bunch of free zines / comics / and the like -- heck you could even win a free copy of that comic we did with that Noah Van Sciver fella, The Death of Elijah Lovejoy! All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org by August 15th, Monday at 5pm. So get cracking! And if your brain requires more deets prior to writing that time consuming email, follow the link to see some of the other participants or check out their neat zine right up here.
Speaking of the Zine Fest, Nic Breutzman made it into the City Pages Comics Issue! And if you should take a look at his comic and dig it, well, he just might have something for your peepers at the Twin Cities Zine Fest in September, perhaps a new mini-comic? I was hanging out with Nic the other day and got to see a bit of his upcoming newsprint split with Noah Van Sciver that we are publishing early next year. It's looking really great and I think we are all in for a treat!
Did I mention that my wife is participating in the Plush You Show at Schmancy Toys this October? Well, she is and we are flying to Seattle for the opening! I just bought tickets for the show a couple of days ago. We are definitely going to hit up the Fantagraphics Book Store and some vegan food places, not sure what else. It's bound to be fun though!
