Sundays cover

Welp. We did it.  Yes, we made another book and any at MoCCA this weekend can get your paws on one.  I am really proud of this volume.  This is the first volume where we left the majority of the editorial responsibilities up to just one of the four editors.  That lucky one was me, Chuck.  I have no idea why I said I would but I am glad I did.  We have 21 amazing contributions this time around and the book clocks in at 134 pages.  We have some of the usual faces and lot of new faces in this one.  The first obvious change is our cover was designed by someone other than us.  That was one of my first things I wanted when I set out to make this book.  And the real first and only name I thought of was Damien Jay.  Damien always has had an amazing knack for designing some of my favorite covers.  And his color choices always just hit me in the right spot.  Luckily when I asked him he said sure, even though he was about to have a baby with the equally talented Minty Lewis.  So huge, huge thanks to that guy for doing this at a time when his life was going through a major change.  Oh and Damien managed to contribute a story as well.  Whattaguy!

This book has a really loose theme, as have most of our Sundays volumes.  This time out I instructed the artists to dance on the theme of Forever Changes which I also subtitles the book.  I didn’t give too much direction just suggestion and inspiration.  This book is filled with a lot of my friends, heroes, and people I only know from seeing their work online.  I just want to thank them for indulging me on making my dream comic.

So who is in this book?

Pretty cool, right?  You have to see this book!  I’ll put it up for sale online after this weekend on the Oily Boutique.  We are numbering these suckers this time and there are only 300 of them and that is it.  No reprinting.  Here is a video of it:

We’ll be at MoCCA of course.  Our traditional festival to unveil a Sundays book.  We will be at table H15.  Just look for the row with One Percent Press, Alec Longstreth, Tugboat, and Secret Acres (we are right next to Secret Acres), and you’ll run into us for sure.

I stole this map from Alec Longstreth(Thanks Alec!)

Also at the table will be another anthology called Kids put together by Melissa Mendes(she’s a friend of mine) and Jose-Luis Olivares.  Both books were printed up at CCS this past weekend so there is a lot of natural love between us.  I read the book yesterday all the way through and it is so solid and amazing.

Another book being released at MoCCA is Sean Ford’s Only Skin #7!  This is the last one!  I’ve watched this book grow from a project in our first year at CCS into the highly sought after self-published comic.  It’s amazing to witness Sean’s dedication to completing a project this big.  We are very proud of him and hope he does well.  Oh he already has.  The collected Only skin will be printed next year by our Mocca neighbors, Secret Acres.  Speaking of Secret Acres, they are debuting a highly-anticipated book by another one of the old Sundays crew, Joseph Lambert.  his book I Will Bite You will be dropping like a bomb.  Stop by and get that one for sure.  I saw the book last weekend and pooped inside of my pants.

And finally I leave you with some photos of production fun:

Hello all! Just wanted to drop a line and let you know that we will have a limited amount of Sundays available at SPX. You can find it at table H2 right next to our friends at One Percent Press and across from Alternative comics. Along with Sundays, you can check out a smattering of comics by the Sundays editors. Among these will be the debuts of Sean Ford‘s Only Skin #2 and a new split-mini by Alex Kim and Chuck Forsman called Hey,Guy. Can’t wait to see you there!

Like Sean said before, SUNDAYS SOLD OUT! We’ll have more copies soon and they will be available at
*Copies are now available at:

I Know Joe Kimpel.com 

This post was taken from my own blog. I’ve taken out everything that doesn’t pertain to Sundays though. I think.

Here we go:

MoCCA 2007

Sundays Sold OUT!

It was a solid two days of traffic as buzz built around the book. Thanks to all of our friends who sent people to our table, or told them to stop by, you guys are the best. Special thanks to James Sturm for personally bringing people to the table several times; and to the CCS table for being our buddies across the way, we sent people to you and we know you sent people to us.

It would be easy for us to milk the interest in CCS and use that as a platform to toss our books out there, but the fact is that the books we students are putting out are really good! The quality of stories, art and production are right there among the best at the show, and we’ve only just begun.

MoCCA took place in four rooms just like this one. It was huge and bright and white. Like a comics heaven.

“Hey guy. What’dya doin over there? D’you wanna comics? D’you wanna large format comics? Where you goin?”

Medusa, the book unfolding out onto the floor, sold out! It was written by our Jess and drawn by Alex. It was great, a real involving read with the format and flowing artwork and language.

Alec Longstreth and James Sturm talk. About what, I wasn’t privileged enough to know.

The one and only Rich Tommaso came over to our table early to check out Sundays, but was unimpressed with the size…

I mean, look at the size of his pages of original art!

I continued to take as many pictures as I could, trying to document the weekend, but I wasn’t the only one:

Chuck gave me a taste of my own medicine. It was sweet and filling.

The show filled up soon, and remained constant.

The one and only Sam Gaskin had a good show with his Pizza Wizard debuting. It was easily one of my favorite books of the show.

The Sundays table was right up against the One Percent Press table. We were one big comics family.

In addition to carrying the 54-page 11 x 17 inch anthology masterpiece Sundays, the table also had books by each of the co-editors. It was a handsome table, made only handsomer by the handsome folk behind the table.

Here’s Alexis Frederick-Frost, CCS grad and author of Maria of Montmarte and La Primavera with his wife Kristen, and myself, the third-wheel.

Sundays was only 10 bucks at MoCCA, and you got a free screen-printed bag to carry all of your wares in. It will be 12 on IKnowJoeKimpel.com in a couple of weeks. But still well worth it. And you may even get some free sketches or comics along with it.

The second day started with a cookie for Chuck.

WOO! Alex sells the very last copy of Sundays to some guy!

Alexis sells and signs his very last copy of Maria of Montmartre to some guy!

Ken Dahl sells a copy of Monsters #2 to some lady, who was a huge fan. Of the comic, or the mustache? We’ll never know.

The famous Clutch McBastard karate chopped my face off when I asked how he thought the show was going.

We made free sketch bookmarks for people at the Sundays table,

Jeff kept an eye Loked down on Charlito. A man of fierce loyalty, Jeff made sure Charlito didn’t talk no jive to his Sundays Brothers Sean or Chuck.

Sean, one of Sundays’ editors is a man of class and disguise.

Thanks to everyone who made this weekend amazing.

MoCCA was a blast! The first print run of the Sundays Anthology sold out, but Editorial is planning to go back to press immediately and make copies available on I Know Joe Kimpel by the end of the week. We just want as many people who want to to be able to see this book.

Thanks to everyone who came out and supported and visited us at MoCCA. It was an unbelievable weekend on several levels and I’m sure the other editors will chime in with their reports soon.

Keep checking out this blog for more Sundays news. We’ll let you know here when the book is available online and we’ll keep posting info about the talented contributors roster.

A special thanks to Heidi MacDonald, who mentioned Sundays several times on The Beat and helped spread the word. I got to meet Heidi for the first time this weekend and she’s great. Thanks to all who helped spread the word.

Favorite book from MoCCA so far: Jamie Tanner’s The Aviary, but I’ve barely scratched the surface of a huge stack of books.

Stay tuned, there’s more Sundays info to come. Thanks again.
