What’s that spelll? Yep: SPX. aka Small Press Expo. aka The Expo. aka “a good time”
September 19 & 20, 2015
We hope you can make it! It’s another great year for us, so without further ado, here’s what we have planned!
All the way from Denmark, Rune Ryberg will be attending and debuting Gigant!
The power couple of Kathryn Immonen and Stuart Immonen will be on hand to scribble in your Russian Olive to Red King!
Because two Canadians isn’t enough, Ethan Rilly flies south to talk what type of Hats the Pope wears.
Lamar REMAKE Abrams says he’ll be hanging with us for a bit, and just might have a new mini.
While not sitting with us proper, we’d be amiss if we didn’t mention that Joshua Cotter, Jim Rugg, Katie Skelly, Gregory Benton, Noah Van Sciver, J Chris Campbell, Jon Chad, Joey Weiser and Sophie Goldstein will also be in the big room.
Also, CONGRATS to all the Ignatz Nominees! I was stoked to see Sophie and Ethan nominated.
I’m hoping we’re in our favorite spot against the wall. W53-W55.

Time has finally come today… or soon.
HeroesCon is just around the corner, and our pinks could not be more tickled (Katie Skelly shown above from last year’s show). Their deats:
• Table AA-1018 within the borders of Indie Island, natch.
• Kathryn Immonen & Stuart Immonen will be there slinging some RORK. (Have you seen their dedications?)
• I’m sure Jim Rugg will have a new mini, zine, or maniphesto to debut.
• Sophie Goldstein will make her first trip there and have The Oven and other wonderful things.
• Gregory Benton returns in a puff of smoke!
• Joey Weiser will be swimmin’ with some fishes!
• Our pal J Chris Campbell might have a new DosFlecky Apparel?
• If I didn’t list you. I love you. I’m just old, and have a bad memory!
I’m pretty stoked to be moderating the Immonen’s panel on Friday at 5:30 in room 207CD.
(We’re gonna get indy on your asses. Or something.)
I hope you can make it to the show. Our books are like children. We birth them into existence. I’ve been birthing for 13 years. The QUALITY of this Spring’s birth is insane. The Oven. Pope Hats #4. Russian Olive to Red King. I’ll put those three against your three any day. Yes, I’m a proud Pappa.

Well, the show-of-shows has snuck upon us again, and before we know it, we’ll be flying our way North to TCAF.
May 9 9-5 / May 10 11-5 / Toronto, Ontario & FREE to attend!
Because that show HAS SO MUCH GOING ON, I thought it best to inform you the AdRelated TCAF Stuff.
Before the actual show itself, Ethan Rilly and John Porcellino will be having a Pope Hats #4 Launch on Thursday @ The Central from 6:30 – 9:30 in the pm). Here’s the FB event.
You can find AdHouse Books at table 219.
The creators tabling with AdHouse are…
Stuart Immonen & Kathryn Immonen of Russian Olive to Red King (TCAF Debut!) fame ( Saturday 9 – 1. Sunday 11 – 2… but more than likely they’ll be at the table most all the time. )
Sophie Goldstein of The Oven fame ( Saturday 1 – 5. Sunday 2 – 5… but more than likely she’ll be at the table most all the time. )
And then you have the AdPeeps who have their own tables. Like…
Jim Rugg of Street Angel / Afrodisiac fame is at table 204.
Ethan Rilly of Pope Hats fame (#4 is a TCAF Debut!) is at table Wowee Zonk.
Noah Van Sciver of Youth is Wasted fame had to cancel his trip at the last minute.
I hope you all can make it!

Per my last post, I had the opportunity to visit the Center for Cartoon Studies back on April 16th… aka Industry Day.
This had been a goal/hope of mine for a while, since I had heard wonderful stories from friends who had visited. The trip did not disappoint. Here’s the flickr album, if you are so inclined.
One of the purposes of the trip is to give students the chance to meet with someone within the industry. A portfolio review of sorts. Not sure if it will do any good, but I thought I’d blog-link to everyone who met with me. So, here they are:
Sam Bair (Couldn’t find a web page, just a sample shown)
James Lunt (Couldn’t find a web page or a sample)
Also, during the Industry Day panel, we talked a little bit about Ed Luce’s Wuvable Oaf. Specifically, my telling the students about a wonderful interview I read with Ed and how he broke down his production process for his comics. I met Ed a few days later at LineworkNW, and he offered to send me a PDF of that process. So, here you go.
All-in-all, a wonderful trip. If you have a chance to visit, you should.

I realize that by the time this is being read, Spring will have sprung. At least in regards to comic convention/festival season.
So, just a heads up on our plans in the coming weeks…
MoCCA Art Fest: Due to a schedule conflict, and other details, we will NOT be exhibiting at the MoCCA Art Fest this year. That said, Sophie Goldstein will be there debuting The Oven at table 352 Third Floor (Yellow Zone). So, please stop by to tell her how wonderful the book looks, because it really does. Other AdPeeps, like Gregory Benton will be there, so again, please look them up if you can.
CCS: I don’t know what changed up at CCS, but instead of their Industry Day happening in March, it is in April this year. What does that mean for AdHouse? Well, we’ll be attending for the first time EVER. So, looking forward to it. CCS has been creating some of the best cartoonists around, so I’m sure I’ll see some grand portfolios.
Linework NW: Since I was already going to be traveling for CCS, I decided to keep the party going. I’ll be attending my first Linework NW festival. And, I haven’t been to Portland in around 25 years. I’ve seen some of the talent heading to the show, and wow… it looks to be a fantastic time.
After we get back, TCAF and Awesome Con are within our sites… so stay tuned.

Russian Olive To Red King by Kathryn Immonen & Stuart Immonen.
Published by AdHouse Books
When your lover may be dead, how long can you hold on to what remains? To whatever is left of you? A plane crash, a package, her dog, her voice. A notebook, his writer’s block, and heat-distorted summer memories of a search for Jumbo the Elephant and an absent father.
