Mome to finish....

Oh, maaaaan ... very sad news!! This was probably my favourite comic/book of the last few years, at least since issue 11. I actually wondered if I was losing interest in new comics, but through Mome I was introduced to Dash Shaw, Olivier Schrauwen, Noel Van Sciver, and many more great artists. Plus it was quarterly, inexpensive, and easy to find! Amazing! Eric Reynolds deserves so much praise for getting it to issue 22. I just hope something will come along to fill the void, but who else would have the resources to do it? I guess I'd rather have Mome put together by a series of guest editors, or see it come out less often, than have it disappear, but, ah well.
I'm pretty sure Mome will come to be seen as the most important anthology of it's era.

Comix Reader at MoCCA and Stumptown

Ellen Lindner continues to spread the good word on The Comix Reader. She recently placed us in the coolest Berlin comic shops, and now shes takes The Comix Reader Stateside. Last weekend was MoCCA, next up is Stumptown (April 16-17, Portland OR). She'll also be selling original art (see example), her graphic novel, Undertow, and the great Whores Of Mensa anthology. Check them out if you get the chance (she's really a hidden treasure of the comics scene - hopefully not hidden for too much longer)!

Comix Meeting Tomorrow Night!

Hi Strippers and Comix Fans!

Tomorrow (Wednesday 6th April) is the first Wednesday of the month, which means it's time for our monthly Comix Meeting at The Crown, New Oxford Street!
More info here.
Is there any point in these meetings?? I think so! This is a unique meet-up for fans of underground, alternative & satirical comix and cartooning! Cool, huh?!
It'll be the usual thing : drinking, talking about our latest dreams & projects, and whatever else we're up to, and relaxing in a comix-friendly crowd. Or as Hurk puts it : Have a drink, read some comix-paper, and discuss underground comics of the past, present & future.
I'll be there from 8ish!
Come and celebrate the "alternative" side of cartooning!
