New books in the store!

Hey friends!  We've added a couple new books to the store this week, check them out!
"The immediacy of the pacing drives home Emond’s unique spin on the Inferno: it’s shocking, and demands that you open your eyes immediately and assess your situation. The Inferno happens to someone else, but Debbie’s Inferno is happening to you—you don’t need Debbie-info when Debbie is you, and you’re learning the ropes of the dream-game along with her." -Andrew Tran, 8CN

Debbie's Inferno available here!

"Like a comedic collaboration between Zoroaster and Freud, the comics of Meghan Turbitt portray the eternal forces of id and superego locked in never-ending battle, using spit-takes and dick jokes as weapons, with nary a negotiated ego in sight. There’s a deceptive crudeness to the art of the 31-year-old Rhode Island native, currently living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, though it’s a crudeness comes with a great deal of grotesque comedic power packed in." -Sean T. Collins, The Comic Journal

End of the Year Schedule!

Thanks again for your support/patience last month while we were doing our Kickstarter!  We made our goal and a bit beyond!  I am working on contacting all of our backers, so if you donated please keep an eye on your inbox.  Vortex and Reich are at the printers as I write this, and I'll be spending the next couple weeks getting the rest of the rewards together.

We also have a very busy couple months coming up, which means lots of chances for you to catch us at a show!

Here we go:

Oct. 25th: WOLFMAN'S CARAVAN 9pm-midnight at the East Portland Eagles Lodge, Portland, OR.
This is a new minicomics event, in conjunction with Frankenstein's Comic Book Swap.  Emily will be tabling with a bunch of our minis.  Stop by, say hi, buy her a drink!

Nov. 8th & 9th: COMIC ARTS BROOKLYN (aka CAB) 11am-7pm at Mt. Carmel Church, Brooklyn, NY.
Our friend Austin English (Domino Books) will have a small selection of Sparkplug titles at his table.  Check out his excellent, excellent books as well!

Nov. 14th: VORTEX AND REICH SIGNING & RELEASE PARTY 5-7pm at Floating World Comics, Portland, OR.

One of our favorite comics conventions.  If you missed the signing on Friday, William Cardini will be tabling with Virginia.  Say hi, bring us frybread tacos, pick up our new books!

Dec. 6th COMIC ARTS LOS ANGELES (aka CALA) at Think Tank Gallery, Los Angeles, CA.
Awesome cartoonists Bangs and Beard will be covering the Sparkplug table for this NEW convention.  We are hoping (fingers crossed!) that this will also be the release day for Yumi Sakugawa's Fox Girl and Bird Girl!
