So I meant to write a long, rambling, just-back-from-SPX
-and-damn-was-it-great post, but it's been a week and I'm lazy and many many people have already said all that better than I could anyway. Go here
to read such reports. Basically, I sold some comics, bought a ton of stuff, and talked to / hung out with lots of great people. Haven't even read half the comics I got yet, but here are some worth mentioning thus far:Schematic Comics
by Dan Zettwoch
- by far my favorite comic of the show. Can't wait for his new Redbird
by R. Kikuo Johnson
- really good, I wish it was longer.Blar
and an untitled mini by Drew Weing
- pretty much everything at his and Eleanor Davis's Little House
table was fantastic.Couch Tag
#2 by Jesse ReklawContent
#2.1 by my tablemate GB Tran
, which I only got to read in PDF form since he sold out of the unfortunately few copies he'd brought to the show.
More recommendations as I continue reading. Very high percentage of good stuff this year.
In other news, the remaining watercolors I mentioned in my previous post are now available at the awesome new Rocketship
store in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, along with most of my mini-comics and some fancy new prints. Great store - if you're in or around Brooklyn, you should go check it out. I also just dropped off a bunch of mini-comics at Jim Hanley's Universe
on 33rd St in Manhattan, another great store, one where I spend entirely too much money.
That's about all I got for ya right now. As an aside, let me just say that steam is an awful thing. On Friday, my new apartment (which I just moved into less than 2 months ago, and which was completely renovated immediately prior) gave itself a disgusting steam bath (or "shvitz", if you prefer), courtesy of a faulty radiator valve, causing a fair amount of wet hot damage. I go off to work and leave my apartment alone for just 8 hours a day and look what it does when I'm not looking. Disgusting.
