Strong work at Stumptown 2013. Here’s some of what I picked up.
Terror Scope by table-mate Beth Dean.
If you haven’t seen Beth’s work, you should check it out. It is awesome.
A beautiful little mini comic about a lucid dream club by Sophie Franz
Hells Dachunds by Reid Psaltis
Dachunds on a rampage. There will be blood.
Hawaii 1997 and Farmer’s Dilemma by Sam Alden
Sam is the most talented young cartoonist I’ve seen. His artwork is beautiful and unique and his stories are strong. Check out his blog for lots of new and interesting things.
Tomb of the Zombies by Josh Shalek
Solid stories, excellent craftsmanship, tireless storyteller.
Hic & Hoc Presents: Unknown Origins & Untimely Ends
a collection of unsolved mysteries
edited by Emi Gennis
A thick anthology of unsolved mysteries. Interesting and well done. More of these, please.
The Mire by Becky Cloonan
A tightly crafted story with beautiful artwork, as one might expect of Becky Cloonan. Get this if you can in a store or for $.99 at comixology.
American Analog (photo zine), Ideas, and Boof
by Doctor Popular
The Strumpet 2; A Transatlantic Blaze of Glory by Strumpet
Anthology by women cartoonists with some international flair
Phase 7, #17 by Alec Longstreth
Alec is one of the nicest, most talented and hard working folks I’ve had the pleasure to meet in comics. I would be happy to read anything he puts out. This issue’s Wheezer album on the cover promises good times.
Study Group Magazine #2 Edited by Zack Soto
This magazine/anthology/art exhibition is always interesting, well curated and a lot of fun. Cover to cover enjoyment. The same goes for everything Zack puts out. I wish there were more magazines like this one.
Frankie, Get Your Gun; An Acid Western by Robbie Rodriguez
Robbie can draw like the wind blows. And the covers are killer.
