In the Aftermath of BellCAF

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!

Below are a couple photographs from the show:

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!

Bellingham Comic Arts Festival!

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

So help spread the word!

BellCAF is organized by Neoglyphic Media

Seeds are Sewn

Joel Skavdahl’s SEEDS comics are finally being printed and they’re getting a deluxe treatment!

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!

CAB, Short Run, New Releases!

November 8th – Comic Arts Brooklyn (Brooklyn, NY)

Comic Arts BrooklynWe’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.


November 30th – Short Run (Seattle, WA)

Short Run!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!

Orbiter’s Prism by Drew Miller

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!

Slithering Sleep is HERE!


Slithering Sleep
This has been an amazing project to work on, as it has slowly and mysteriously developed over the course of the last year to such an amazing culmination. Danielle is an amazingly talented artist and it’s really been an honor to work with her so closely to make this book. Slithering Sleep was made in a limited print run of 500 copies, and each copy is assembled by hand, with a seven panel centerfold stapled into the center of the larger book. A perfectly appropriate fit in that case for its premiere at the 3rd Annual Short Run Small Press Festival in Seattle. By the end of the show, we’d actually sold all the copies that we brought with us!

Slithering Sleep centerfoldOn the whole, Short Run is a great festival and it continues to be a really inspiring show for us to attend, as well as seeming to be growing more each year and turning into something really unique among those where we try to make a regular appearance. It was great to see folks caught by the cover of Slithering Sleep as they were walking past the table and get drawn in. Copies were flying off the table! This festival also seems to really showcase the strength of the community of creative people in the Northwest and it’s exciting to be a part of it! Thanks to the awesome organizers that make this festival happen – Kelly Froh, Eroyn Franklin, and Janice Headley. We’ll definitely be back next year!

Short Run 2013Short Run represents a cap to 2013 in terms of our festival appearances and releases, but it also means that we’ll soon be making some announcements about some of the projects already in the works for 2014, including the new planned release date for Poor Thing #2, which unfortunately had to be pushed back due to Drew moving across the country to the big city of New York. More to come soon!

Thanks for reading!
