Hey there.  Going to SPX 2011 this weekend?  Expect to see a table(D2) with the old Sundays banner flying with some old and new stuff for sale or perusal. Here is the rundown:

Melissa Mendes:

Melissa is debuting her freshly printed, 100+ page Xeric book, Freddy Stories at SPX. This is a treat. If you are familiar with Melissa’s previous Freddy comics, this book has all those stories plus like 40 more pages of new comics. Get one for the kid in you or in your life.

Melissa will also be doing a reading at Atomic Books in Baltimore on Friday before SPX with a ton of other great cartoonists. We recommend going to this event. It is always fun and Atomic always comes through with the free drinky-poos…if you are into that sort of thing.
 Joseph Lambert:

Our pal Joe will be with us this weekend as well as hanging out with the Secret Acres folks where you can get Joe’s amazing I Will Bite You.

This book is causing a ruckus and getting nominated like 2 times for Ignatz awards(given away this very weekend). Come say hi to Joe. He always has some superfresh prints and mini comics for sale. We hope Joe gets a brick or two this weekend. That would be a well-deserved perk for this hard working man.

Oh and we almost forgot that Joe is in the new and last Mome available at the Fantagraphics table.

Sean Ford:

The always reliable Sean Ford will be in attendance with copies of Only Skin his super awesome mystery-ghost-murder-comedy comic book series. Maybe he’ll have a special print for sale as well. Maybe something like this?

Sean is plugging away at finishing up Only Skin for its publication next year as one book by Secret Acres. Things are happening!

Chuck Forsman:

Let it be known that I am now writing about myself. I will have The Ground is Soft and a new mini comic called The End of the Fucking World for sale. This new comic will be cheep and isn’t for kids.

I am also in Mome 22 and will be signing at the Fantagraphics booth, 11am to noon on Saturday and noon to 1 on Sunday. Come by and talk to me because I expect I will be bored.

Unfortunately, Alex Kim won’t be with us this weekend. We’ll be missing some much needed laughs due to his absence. But we have it on good authority that AK is working on something big. SOMETHING BIG.
Sundays cover

And of course we will have copies of Sundays 2 and the latest, Sundays Forever Changes. We hear that Warren Craghead may be wandering around the show this weekend. Maybe he’ll draw in your copy of Sundays Forever Changes for you, you lucky duck.

Okay okay. Have a good weekend. I hope your basement isn’t flooded.

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:
A page from Snake Oil #2, Git it, Pretty Kitty!

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.

Monsters 3!  Ken Dahl!

Monsters 3! Ken Dahl!

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!

Screen print postah!

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.

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!
