Hey there, jewel eyes. I made new Loot bags for you…

Printed by the fine fellows at Pizza Party. $15, available at SPX. 

SPX COMETH!

Check this oouuuuttt…

Here’s “Ugs, Fugs and Grossos”, 28 pages of ug-ass mugs, fug-ass fugs, and gross-ass grossos; and “Executioner and Friend”, dungeons, dragons, and dick jokes, each by Jimmy Giegerich.

"Heroical #1" is an 11" X 14" zine by David Plunkert chock full of weirdo super hero stuff, and playfully off-beat heros.

The very exciting “Fantasy Basketball” by Sam Bosma will be in the mix as well and it’s sure to be mind-blowingly good.

Alex Fine is debuting “Il Bruto”, a hilarious collection of Charles Bronson pin ups in classic action movie rolls.

"Warlow’s Guide to Wizards, Sorceri & Familiars Arcane" by yours truly will be there of course!

Two new comics from Haleigh Buck of Hey Boy Comics will be debuting as well: “Herman the Hot Dog” and “Internet Diarrhea”, sure to be goofy-as-hell, wildly inappropriate, and full of schadenfreude.

Last but not least, Kali Ciesemier will be selling some gorgeous prints of her work that are not to be missed!

That’s what we got for you guys! Come to tables M5-M8 to get your hands on it all! We’ll see you there, pals.

This weekend I thought I’d share just a tiny sliver of the books on my wishlist that are all debuting at SPX. All the work that’s popping up for this year looks fantastic, and I’m so psyched to be there already.

Magical Beatdown Vol. 1 by Jenn Woodall / Reggie 12 by Brian Ralph / Frontier’s second issue featuring work by Hellen Jo / Blobby Boys by Alex Schubert / Picnic Ruined by Roman Muradov / Honey by Celine Loup / Gold Pollen and Other Stories by Seiichi Hayashi / Softcore #1-3 by Box Brown / Snackies #2 by Nick Sumida 

Tomorrow I’ll share the books my table group mates are debuting! They’re ALSO on my wishlist and are soooo good lookin’. Check back then!

I made screenprints of my “Pest Control” illustration. Aw yes halftone.

"Greetings dear reader, fellow student of the arcane such as you must be. You have selected this guide in your search for a spirit ally, a familiar…"

I’m psyched to announce my newest zine debuting at SPX this September, Warlow’s Guide to Wizards, Sorceri & Familiars Arcane. It’s a helpful tome for young magi as they make the important choice of a familiar that will accompany them throughout their magical growth. Featuring illustrations of notable witches and wizards and their partners, along with specimen charts and helpful notes from the “author” himself, the great wizard Warlow.

Printed on Cougar natural off-white stock with 3-color interiors and a screen-printed cover. I’m having tons of fun creating these characters and I’m excited for you to see the zine in its entirety at the expo. Hope to see you there!

18” X 24” posters of my Queen Emeraldas piece will be for sale at SPX this year in addition to my other offerings. It’s rad to see it printed large! If you think so too and might want to put one on your wall, they’re just $20, AND only 25 of them will be available.

To find them at the expo, look for me surrounded by the collective radness of Kali Ciesemier (whose handy map I’ve borrowed from her tumblr), Sam Bosma, and Jimmy Giegerich. We’ll see you there!

"LOOT" tote bags! Get them for $15 from me at SPX!

They’re perfect for holding your zines, your sketchbooks, magazines, or LP’s. These were screen-printed by the great fellows at Pizza Party Printing in Baltimore. 

After just 24 hours Damn Fine Coffee! is over 250% funded! I&#8217;m blown away! Thank you all so much for your support. You&#8217;ve guaranteed that the zine will not only happen, it&#8217;ll be the best that it can be and will make it to many more hands than I expected. I&#8217;m so glad that everyone&#8217;s excited about this project, has been contributing and sharing it with their friends, and I&#8217;m psyched to get your zines and prints and drawings into your hands.
It hardly needs to be said, but I just have to thank all my talented contributors again, as none of this would have been possible without them. There is just so much gorgeous work in the zine. Some you might have already enriched your eyes upon and plenty that will be an excellent surprise. I hope you get the chance to check it all out either by pre-ordering through Kickstarter or by picking up a copy of Damn Fine Coffee! at SPX this year!
