Please Consider Helping Joshua Cotter.

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Joshua Cotter updated his Facebook status on October 25, 2010 with the frightening news that his apartment was the victim of a neighboring apartment fire. It seems their neighbor had left a candle burning.

Thankfully, Josh, his girlfriend and his cats all came out of it rather OK. As well, most of their possessions were spared. (Other than having to clean EVERYTHING, and then pack those items for storage.) They lost things like their bed and some other furniture.

Unfortunately, they didn’t have renter’s insurance. And expenses have been adding up (renting a truck, days off from work).

So, if you like Josh’s work, might I suggest a few ways to help.

First, the items he’s selling on his site weren’t damaged by the fire, and are still for sale. Josh told me that he will be updating this page in the coming days, so check back if you have any interest. You can always get him to draw you something, too.

Second, we here at AdHouse will give Josh 100% of the sales for the following items during the next three weeks (11/1 – 11/22):

Skyscrapers of the Midwest / Driven by Lemons / AdHouseStickerPack#2

So, if you can help, it would be appreciated. Josh is a good guy, and I hate to see stuff like this happen to good people. Spread the word, if you can.

Thanks, Chris

Howdy Folks!

Well, hope your holidays were swell. Ours was pretty good. We haven’t really blogged all that much since we don’t have that much going on at present. The next big thing for us is AFRODISIAC which is making it’s way to your better local comic shop very soon! (I’ll be sure to post when we have a concrete date.) We also have some other things in the work, so we’ll be sure to mention those when the deats are a bit more concrete.

I thought I’d link to a few of the Best Of lists that have been happening of late that are associated with the Ad.

• Patrick Godfrey of Velocity Comics gave REMAKE a nod on his best of 2009.

•  Johanna Draper Carlson gives JOHNNY HIRO a VERY BEST OF 2009, which is quite stunning.

• NY Magazine gives AFRODISIAC a best of 2009 nod. We’re on the cusp, people!

• Joe at Flashlight Worthy says DRIVEN BY LEMONS deserves a Best of 09 nod.

• Douglas Wolk gives LEMONS an honorable mention on his Best of 09 BN list!

• Matt at Drawn give PR3 a nod on his 09 Best of list.

• Publishers Weekly gave LEMONS a Best of 09 Nod, too.

• Jeff at JHU just gave JOHNNY HIRO a Best of Nod as well.

Well, that’s all the ones I can think of at this point. What else? If you’re in the mood for a new TeeShirt, I’d suggest checking out the swell design Joshua Cotter did for The Comix Revolution.

Something about the Fall and the plethora of events available…

This past weekend there was a McSweeny’s reading, a Zine festival and a combined silkscreen/beer event. (Along with one set of rents visiting!) Unfortunately, I only got to get to the Zine festival,  so, check the pics, if you are so inclined.

Other stuff:

Congrats to Josh Cotter and his Driven by Lemons being nominated as a Best of 2009 by Publishers Weekly. Very cool, in that I wish Josh the best that can happen. If I had to guess, I’d say the book should be in better LCSs on 11/18? You can check any number of places for shipping lists, and we’ll hopefully announce for certain on the twit, once we confirm.

That said, Pope Hats #1 is for sure in your better LCS on 11/11 in the US and 11/12 in some parts of the Great White North. (If your LCS doesn’t order our comics, you can always order from us.)

It looks like we’ll have THE BIGGEST SALE WE’VE EVER HAD sometime in the beginning of December. We’ll be sure to announce it here and other places when it goes live.

Stumbled (virtually) upon a new store in Norfolk called Local Heroes. Hope to stop by and check them out the next time I’m down there. Thanks to Todd Webb for the headsup.

Traditional Comics is up and running. One of my fave publishers… ever!

James Jean is on tour around the world. Clicky for the deats!

Many moons ago, our friends at the Dollar Bin interviewed Fred, Josh and Lamar at SPX. Thanks!

Afrodisiac is being printed as you read this. You can being informed of it, and other Jim Rugg stuffage at his new blog.
