[BUY IT ONLINE HERE] from Silver Sprocket and let visitors know how you chew.Ben’s on some weird road-trip right now, but is usually at home being a crusty Brandon Graham or Miyazaki drawing Daygloaywhole, a stunningly beautiful, thought provoking and hilarious sci-fi comic book that might be a thinly veiled analogy for the New Orleans punk/anarchist communities and Ben’s own life, but what the hell do I know? We have them in the shop too, or figure out how to read it free on Tumblr.   High-res

Liz Suburbia's center spread from As You Were #1 made you freak out and demand screen-prints of it (good call). Bitch Magazine then gave us a shout-out on behalf of El Sub’s chops (probably because of the awesome female characters and sex positivity in her art) in As You Were #3.
At ComicCon last week, Fantagraphics (one of the most important comix and graphic novel publishers in the history of ever) announced they’ll be turning Suburbia’s Sacred Heart web-comic series into a graphic novel.
Here’s a behind-the-scenes peek at that from Out Of Step Arts:


We’re stupid-excited about a brand new Liz Suburbia art that we’ll be showing off next week after we get a chance to post a few up around town, with a run of 18x24 screen-prints and back-patches. Check back soon.   High-res

We’re stupid-excited about a brand new Liz Suburbia art that we’ll be showing off next week after we get a chance to post a few up around town, with a run of 18x24 screen-prints and back-patches. Check back soon.

Liz Prince's work appears in all three of our As You Were punk-comix zines, which means that—as you probs already know—she’s not only a total badass, but also really busy churning out awesome things on the regular.

This time around, her artwork shows up in July’s Adventure Time #30 comic book from BOOM! Studios. More than a dozen artists joined forces to make this issue an ultra-meta zine created by the Adventure Time gang, with Prince illustrating the four-page comic from Marceline The Vampire Queen herself.

Also worth getting way stoked about is Prince’s new book Tomboy, a graphic memoir about navigating gender, punk rock, and the general awkwardness of growing up. It comes out next month, but you can pre-order it here.

You can also help out by joining the Tomboy Street Team THIS WEEK. This entails taking postcards to your local bookstores, comic shops, libraries, etc. to ask the people working to order it. In return, you get a special, exclusive, limited edition bookplate designed by Prince herself! This is a total win-win, as you get something cool out of it while also promoting a really rad and super important book. What are you waiting for?

Catalogs are garbage. We try to make ours only half garbage by throwing free posters from our favorite artist friends on the back.

Two designs this time around from our very favorites right now;  “All Cats Are Beautiful” by Ben Passmore and a magical river scene by Lindsay Watson.

These are free with mail-order, in person, or just ask for one.

Don’t tell anyone, the catalog-sides list a few things we haven’t announced yet.
