Sparkplug at APE with Whirlwind Wonderland
Sparkplug Comic Books will be premiering our new publication
Whirlwind Wonderland by Rina Ayuyang, co-published
with Tugboat Press. The book is up for sale on our website.
Whirlwind Wonderland follows the life-altering exploits of a somewhat-normal Filipino American girl as she meanders through sleepy suburban sprawls, empty diners, fantasy-filled commuter traffic jams, misplaced football fanaticism, ethnic identity crash courses, and just good ole family hi-jinx. The book showcases new stories and old favorites written and drawn by Rina Ayuyang, cartoonist and creator of “Namby Pamby”, a mini-comic series that explores the humorous side of life's ordinary moments.
Sparkplug and Tugboat will be sitting next to each other at the this weekend in San Francisco, California. Saturday and Sunday at table numbers 359-362.
We'll be tabling with Tom Neely, Teenage Dinosaur, Jesse Reklaw, Willow Dawson, Chris Cilla, Rina Ayuyang, David King, Renee French, and . Sparkplug will also be representing Bodega Distribution, Jason Martin, La Mano and Secret Acres at the show.
Come by and say Hi.
