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.
I got the tattoo - and i love it <3
Just so you know that Lindsay Watson is a VERY SERIOUS ARTIST, check out these drawings of ButtDick from the Portland Zine Symposium. Dear Linday, please let us publish a zine of ButtDick Adventures. [Non-ButtDick Merch Here]
Lindsay Watson conjures up truly magical artwork. We present for you now this “Care For Your Spirit” artwork on 9x9 inch screen-prints on archival quality acid-free paper in a hand-numbered edition of 50, available now in the freshly revamped Silver Sprocket Store. They’re $10 each flat or $25 framed. Also available on pins.
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.
Check out this video of our field trip to “Caturday! Take Your Cat to the Park” last weekend with Nation Of Amanda's brand new “I Want All Of The Cats To Love Me The Best” shirts.
Buy one on the new Silver Sprocket store-thing.
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.
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.
All weekend we will be slingin’ free haircuts, bad idea potion and a willingness to employ direct action to make up for comic-cons missing harassment policy (WE RIDE TOGETHER! WE DIE TOGETHER! WE HIT CREEPS WITH BIG FOAM SWORDS TOGETHER!) oh and also we will be doing things to help us pay for the table like slinging brand new screen prints, zines, pins and all kinds of other bullshit from the likes of Ben Passmore, Lindsay Watson, Ferin Fick, Andy Warner, Ben Snakepit, Mitch Clem and Nation Of Amanda. Not to mention the horse we rode in on of the rootenist tootenist stickers, patches, shirts, As You Were #1, 2 & 3, screen-prints, a fishbowl full of advice/everclear, healing crystals, hammers both large and small, tonka trucks, hoaxs, screams, a mirror that when you look into it it tells you the future, a mirror thats just a real mirror so you can see how pretty you are, whatever chotchkies we think will make doc hammer like us. so on.
If you can’t get down to Slam Diego, peek them graphics above for tiny previews, and we will premiere all this new artwork full-on with mail-order links when we get back starting July 29th.
Oh shit wait we have a crazy-comin-at-ya-straight-up-like-what? awesome and gigantic new screen-print from Liz Suburbia next week that won’t be ready for San Diego, but fuck it, I’m writing about it right now anyway because its about skateboarding and chopping heads off and you’re gonna freak out.
