Sundays 2 will be back at SPX this weekend at table G1. Come visit!
It’s been an exciting time for many of our esteemed Sundays editors and contributors and while they would never toot their own horns, I’m more than happy to be the tootiest horn in the land on their behalf. So here’s a peak at what Sundays folks will have at the Sundays table and other places throughout the show this weekend:
First up, it’s a big weekend for editor Chuck Forsman, he was nominated for three Ignatz Awards for his hilarious, dark comic series Snake Oil - Chuck will be at the table signing copies of Snake Oil and negotiating a bailout for Bank of America. Come on by to check out Snake Oil issues 1 and 2 and his story in Sundays 2, if you haven’t already.
Next, it’s also a big weekend for editor/screen-printer extraordinaire Alex Kim. Alex will have his freshly printed, Xeric-funded graphic novel Wall City available. He’ll also have a hilarious, beautiful new Eagle Fight Squad story – it’s a full-color comic that folds out to deluxe poster size. Also, check out the first Eagle Fight Squad stories in Sundays 2.
Editor and cover artist/designer of Sundays 2, Joe Lambert, is planning to have a top secret new mini along with his ever-growing collection of amazing minis (if you haven’t seen the cavemen one yet, you lose, dear reader); and if you’re on the ball, you can pick up a copy of Best American Comics 2008 beforehand (I don’t think Houghton Mifflin will be at SPX). If you’re nice, you can get Joe to sign his beautiful endpapers for the book or his mini Turtle Keep It Steady that was chosen for inclusion in the collection.
Editor Jeff Lok will have the first part of his graphic novel in progress, Pockmarked Apocalypse, a staggering sad and funny epic. Not to mention his Sam and Dan strip in Sundays 2.
Sundays editor Bryan Stone will not be at the show, but his work will be there in the form of Bash! Magazine. Bryan has done an Onion Head story in each of the first three issues of the magazine, alongside the likes of Theo Ellsworth and Eamon Espey. And you can check out the very first Onion Head story in Sundays 2.
Sundays 2 contributor Sam Gaskin will have a new issue of Pizza Wizard at the show, as well as his first collection Fatal Faux Pas – those books will be over at the Secret Acres table, H5. He’s also performing some live music at the crazy Atomic Books Anniversary party Friday night, October 3rd. I think they’re calling it SPXplosion. You can, of course, also read his amazing strip in Sundays 2.
Sundays 2 contributor Ken Dahl will have a new issue of his highly regarded Monsters series, the third issue, which features a truly bitching AND disturbing cover. He also has his new book Welcome to the Dahl House out this year from Microcosm, which if you haven’t tracked down yet, this weekend is the perfect opportunity. Ken will also be on a book tour of the East Coast the next week or so, including stops at the Atomic Books SPXplosion party and SPX itself. And if you missed his hilarious contribution to Sundays 2, omg, you can get it this weekend!
Sundays contributor Denis St. John will have a new issue of Monsters & Girls, continuing the funny-horror-mystery of Amelia.
Sundays contributor JP Coovert will have a new book he’s illustrated called The Last Invisible Boy, not to mention a ton of new stuff at his One Percent Press table. One Percent Press will be right next door to the Sundays table, check out their awesome music and comics offerings here for now.
As for little old me, I’ll have my three issues of Only Skin and a brand new screen printed Only Skin poster that you can hang on your wall, just to let people know what you’re all about.
I know, I know, you’re asking – what if I could get one book that had awesome work from all these awesome cartoonists and more? Well, dear reader… YOU CAN! Sundays 2! This weekend, table G1 at SPX, right by the entrance. And of course, you STILL get a snappy screen-printed bag to carry home all your goodies in.
Wow. That’s a lot, thanks for reading! We hope to see you at the show. It should be a good one.
