Aside from being in our As You Were #2 and #3 punk-comics zines, Adrian plays in bands, has comics in Razorcake and possesses the skills to stay fed post-collapse as a punk rock farmer. Read the interview!
Here’s the other side of our fence on Valencia Street.
Left to right:
1. “House Shows” by Liz Suburbia, from the pages of As You Were #1, and screen-prints.
2. An untitled piece we’ve been calling “Make Me Feel…” by DW that we have on patches and stickers
3. “Nap All Day, Sleep All Night, Party Never” sloth by Nation Of Amanda, on shirts, stickers, patches and screen-prints.
Wheat Pasting is fun! This fence has lots more space, what other messages should we present for San Francisco? I’m partial to Ferin’s Fuck Right Off harpy…

Important jams coming your way!!
WILL LAREN has been one of our favorite artists for the last couple years.
After having him in As You Were and nabbing some of his art to make our printed catalogs only half-useless, we are pleased as punch to have an excuse to talk to this new world genius as we play our cards in hopes of going hog wild on more projects, drunken texting him at 4 in the morning to draw something to put on dog sweaters and shit.
Its a crime Will Laren is not the most talked about comic-smith around. Maybe it’s because nobody knows the brain behind these scribblings? Just in case, we hit the bricks and knocked on doors, til he answered one, and asked the REAL questions.
AS YOU WERE #3 EARLY BIRD SPECIAL
The first 200 mail-orders come with all the stuff in this picture including this screen-printed Liz Suburbia sticker with a panel from their comic that makes my heart sing.
Also included (for everyone who mail-orders, not just the first 200) is this full-color poster by Will Laren (on the back of our catalog) and a Silver Sprocket sticker designed by this issue’s cover artist Lauren Denitzio.
As You Were #3. This is our best issue yet. 112 pages of new comics from 28 of our favorite artists. I can’t wait for you to see it. April 15th.
Do you write reviews?
The third issue of our “As You Were” zine filled with contributions from our favorite independent comic book creators (who happen to be punks) is coming out this month. Please get in touch if you’d be into reviewing it or know anyone we should reach out to. avi [at] silversprocket.net (or tumblr or whatever)… thanks!!
Here’s a fun little DIY video by San Francisco punk rock band Great Apes. If you’re not familiar with the band, think JAWBREAKER meets the LAWRENCE ARMS and mix in some JAWBOX and yeah.. It’s awesome!!

How bout Doctor Who combined with absolute hatred of the police?
Hows that grab ya?
Fuck the shadow proclamation,
Idea by Zack, design by Danny The Girl!!!
DW drew this, and like reverse Tron, its out of the interweb into the tangible realm where you can stick it on your Nissan Stanza or turn that hole in the butt of your favorite jeans into an OppriTEARnity by putting Kid Clampdowns funnies over it.
If you judge success by how many Tumblr likes something gets, this got them all. You’re on tumblr right? Yeah, you liked it.
