The first Bellingham Comic Arts Festival was an amazing success!
Thanks to everyone who came to see what it was all about, and to all the exhibitors who came to share their work. Everyone put a lot into the show and it was apparent as you crossed the room and saw the astonishing high-caliber work from all the exhibitors. Thanks also to the volunteers who helped make the show go off without a problem!
We are really happy to have been able to put on this show and so grateful for all the support! We are excited to see how the small-press community grows and to host another show like this when the time comes!
The Bellingham Comic Arts Festival (BellCAF) is a single day festival celebrating the diverse array of today’s cartoonists, illustrators and printmakers creating new and exciting work, whether it takes the form of comic books, zines, prints, graphic novels or something altogether weirder!
BellCAF will take place Saturday, March 14th 2015 from 12:00pm-7:00pm at:
The Majestic Hall
1027 N Forest St
Bellingham, WA 98225
ATTENDANCE IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!!!
So help spread the word!
BellCAF is organized by Neoglyphic Media

We’ll have pre-release copies available at both Comic Arts Brooklyn and Short Run this year, so come by and see them in their true splendor. These early copies do not yet include the mini-book that will come packaged with these comics, so we’re offering them for a discounted rate if you buy it now and we’ll mail you the mini-book as soon as it is printed.
For those who won’t be able to make it to either of these shows, we’re still offering pre-orders at a discount, but they will not ship until the mini-book is printed.
Check our tumblr for more preview images!
We’re headed back to CAB again this year where we’re going to be premiering Joel Skavdahl’s SEEDS #1-5 Print Set!
On top of that, we’ll have a new print from Ben Nadler, ‘Pioneers of Astrophysics‘, and ‘All Around Us‘, a HUGE newsprint poster created by Danielle Burton for Briana Marela.
This looks like the biggest Short Run yet and we going to be coming out in force for this one! Drew Miller, Cullen Beckhorn, Ben Nadler, and Joel Skavdahl will be running the table throughout the day.
Also, Drew Miller has a new short comic that will be featured in the Short Run festival anthology, On Your Marks #2, which will be risograph printed in an edition of 250!
For the occasion of the first ever RIPExpo in Providence, Rhode Island, we released a new short comic piece from Drew Miller, that comes as a self-contained story.
This time, Drew is working loose and expressive in a fully colored and painted style unlike his previous comics. Fans of Drew’s Poor Thing will find something different, but just as exciting!
Orbiter’s Prism will be available soon through many of our stockists or can be ordered direct.
Any direct orders will also include a free copy of the Emergence Newspaper while they last!
Come check us out on our festival circuit this summer:

Just off the presses, we’ve got a new publication coming out for Free Comic Book Day that you can expect to see around any of the bookstores that usually carry our titles.
Done in the spirit of Seattle’s Intruder and Providence’s Paper Rodeo, a crew of us have started a new free newspaper for art and comics. The first issue was just printed and features new work from:
We are making these available to bookstores for the cost of shipping alone; just get in touch through our Contact page!
