I am launching a new sequential internet comic. It is called FEELS. It will run twice a week. It will be divided into Episodes, and later Seasons. Between Episodes, I will be filling the space with extraneous materials: sketches, notes, story things, bits, pieces. Soundtracks for the Episodes will also be involved.
This comic takes place in Chicago. The year, 2005. Higher education begins, the nest becomes empty, everything has changed outside, nothing has changed inside. Surrounded by new faces, everyone still finds themselves alone.
Here is part one.
The Chicago Alternative Comics Expo has come and gone, and it was quite the fabulous time!
I debuted some new comics there, and while I sold out of most of my extra copies, they are available at Quimby’s in Chicago!
The first is a newly colored version of Family, the lil’ mini I had at last year’s CAKE.
The next is more exciting, and I do actually have copies of it, so I’ll put them up for sale soon—
GOLF CLAP 2014
This is a very exciting new book, as it’s actually a mini-comic anthology I curated. It’s got new work from Laurie Piña, Megan Stanton, and Lillie West, who all made outstanding work with a vaguely “summer” theme. Golf Clap presently is definitely available at Quimby’s.
The third comic is entitled “Sticks,” and is a sparse, new, and sensual bit of work.
On top of all this work, I’m also included in the newest LUMPEN comics issue!
As we all know, the Chicago Reader’s Comics Issue made… interesting choices as to who to include. All around great person Joe Tallarico gathered all those who were tossed out in the new Lumpen, including this bizarre comic of mine below:
I have a webstore, did you know that?
I have comics on there!
INCLUDING THIS ONE THAT I’VE JUST FINALLY REPRINTED, since it sold out at CAKE this year.
It’s called Next World Over, and it is an homage to that whole Sliders thing I keep talking about.
Here’s a blurb:
Annie St. Clair might have accidentally created a super collider in her bedroom. Now she’s stuck in the next world over with her dumb older brother being menaced by a T-Rex. Whoops!
Color cover, b/w interior, 25 pages.
AND SOME EXAMPLES:
Speaking of SLIDERS, I’m also selling the comics compilation I made this year, entitled PARADISE LOST:
Here’s the blurb on that:
“Paradise Lost” is the consensus worst episode of the 90s television show Sliders (a show about parallel dimensions). In this episode, a mutated worm menaces an idyllic town while pooping blue goo that stops you from aging. Yikes.
In honor of this turd of an episode, I asked some of my cartoonist friends to create a comic in response to having to watch this episode. They came up with some amazing results.
36 pages, 8.5×11, b/w with some color.
That’s an incredible lineup!!!
