STUFF!

One of the first things I read* after returning from Comic-Con was their 40th Anniversary Souvenir Book. (Not to be confused with the Chronicle one. This is the one that they hand out when you enter the show.) I LOVED it. Since it was their 40th, they went back and gave a recap of every year, along with memories from people who have been part of the show since the beginning. You got to see fantastic program covers, where the convention has exhibited, who the guests were… fascinating stuff! To all those involved, thanks and GREAT JOB! (*I also read some submissions along the way, but finished those after the SDCC book.)

The next four orders that get placed through the AdShop will receive a FREE scratchndent copy of REMAKE. Just sayin. (the normal disclaimer applies.)

David at the PreCur on HIRO:  “So basically, what we’re dealing with here is a loving, functional couple dealing with the occasional outburst of genre mash-up, based on whatever Chao pulls out of the pop-culture junk drawer.”

SDNN on JJ:  “As a welcome reprieve from his larger projects, Jean finds pleasure in drawing in his sketchbooks as a self-contained world free from the constraints that are par for the course of any commercial-art career.”

Hipster Dad on TRH:  ” It’s done with a delightfully balanced sense of scale and wit, with wonderful artwork and character designs.” via TCR.

Don @ EyeonComics on TTT: “But artist Scott Morse reveals that he often feels as lost as the rest of us. He’s struggling to live a good life, to be a good father. The world around him and the people in it can be frustrating, even infuriating, but when he pauses, he can see the wonder in the quieter, everyday moments as well.” via TCR.

Episode Three of the ISR’s MoCCA Reportage.

Drawn talks the PR3.

And speaking of Drawn, a big thanks to Matt for helping us make connections. We just might be helping a certain someone bring a certain thing to certain shops at some point in the future. (Break out your decoder rings people!)

A Tiger in Every Tank

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

Or on every shelf.

I “think” TIGER!TIGER!TIGER! hits your LCS today. At least I saw one post that said it should be out there. If not, we have placed both it and NOTES OVER YONDER in the AdShop. And as always, you could bug Mr. Morse about getting a copy too.

Speaking of NOTES, our comical reporter Spurg gave it a review last night: “This is my favorite of the Scott Morse books to date…”

Haven’t really heard how the Mesmo party went, but it looks packed! Remember that Desert Island does those cool prints, and that they have one by Rafael, if you are so inclined. Oh.. and having been nudged by Chuck Moore over at Comic Related, I looked into when Diamond got their copies of Mesmo. Based on that info, I’m guessing your LCS should have copies today or next Wednesday. If you have an LCS that wouldn’t order such a book, you can always order from us, or heck, we even saw InStockTrades was selling them on ebay.

In other news.. can you believe I still have books from HeroesCon that I haven’t read? Tis’ true. I’ll get to them eventually. That said, I did read some of my MagComics over the last few days. MagComics are those magazine sized comics. An oddity, but much loved none the less. The two I read were PUG DAVIS and SWORD.

PUG is one of those great discoveries that is right out of left field. And by that, I mean it comes along fully formed and makes you wonder “Where the heck did THIS come from?”. There’s only been a few comics that have ever done that to me, and THB was one of them. So, just to say that PUG is goooooood. While not “perfect” as my first exposure to Sugar’s work, I’m still quite impressed. Heck, you can even ready the whole thing at the link above, if you want. Art for the masses!!!

SWORD gets a mention because we love the One Percenters. Heck, I feel  like they’ve been around as long as we have, and they have to be half my age. Sword is their first anthology (what took you so long!) and it’s a very nice mix of talented peoples. I don’t know why, but I feel they’re all drinking from the same well. Maybe that’s a good editor, or maybe they’re all going to CCS. I don’t know. Anyway, they make great comics, and you should check this one out if/when you can.

What else?

This weekend is the big RichCon. They say it’s the largest show in Virginia. And I believe them… (for now.) Heh. Is that a bit of foreshadowing there? Could be. But anyway, I won’t be exhibiting this time out, but I do plan to stop by and say some “Hi”s and see if anyone is interested in some books. If you’re in the area, you should, too.

And how come I always remember stuff to post about after I post? Must be a Murphy’s Blog Law or something. Anyway, if you haven’t checked Alan’s War yet, you should enter the contest to win it.  When I get around to doing my best of 2008 write up, it will be on there. And I won’t have that many best uvs, so that should be saying SOMETHING! heh. I’m just too funny sometimes.

PR: TIGER!TIGER!TIGER! in December

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

This November finds Scott Morse releasing his return to his love of cats!  TIGER!TIGER!TIGER!

TIGER!TIGER!TIGER!

Art… fatherhood… work… play. How do you reconcile one to the next? Award-winning author Scott Morse has decided it’s time to try within the pages of TIGER!TIGER!TIGER!, a series of band desinee-style graphic works that combine varied styles of painting and illustration with sequential stories of wonder and the magic of the day-to-day. Morse’s popular tiger from the pages of SOUTHPAW is reborn as a paper tiger through which Morse lives out moments of his life, attempting to harness an inner courage while tackling hard thoughts and new experiences, all the while doing his best to appreciate each moment as it comes.
