Hi. Frequent lurker, occasional poster. My new book CLOUD STORIES goes on sale in better comic book stores around the USA today so I thought I should make a post here about it. It's a collection of short comics stories loosely organized around the topic of clouds. They vary in subject and tone from horror to slapstick comedy, high fantasy to memoir. I think it's pretty good!

Hello, true believers!  Well, things seem kinda dark in my country for a while, due to the recent election, so I thought I would post some of my favorite indy comics friends, and hopefully help spread some queer cheer (and maybe help them make some money while I'm at it).  All creators have given their consent for me to post what I have.

You guys might remember Laurel Lynn Leake--she went by [personal profile] meatwhichdreams and posted some of her Lady Gaga stuff back in 2010!  Well, I'm pleased to announce that she has since gone to comics school, got her comics degree, and continued making awesome work, which I am pleased to own.  This is from All Rumors Are True, her cracked-out drag porn thrillfest!
Mega-images behind the cut! )
You can check out the rest of All Rumors are True (plus the rest of Laurel's awesome work) HERE!  Give the girl some love, y'all!

So my local Comic-Con was last weekend and I want to share one of my finds, a beautiful indie 5-issues miniseries called "Spirit Leaves" by Rossi Gifford, published by Chapterhouse Comics(Who also publishes Captain Canuck).

Descrption from the website:

"Scottish-born Rossi Gifford’s quarterly debut has been hailed as “a beautifully rendered surreal adventure” by Ramon Perez, and a “dynamic and involving with a gorgeous colour palette” by Dave Gibbons.

Freya, an albino deer girl training to be a shaman, sets off to the mystical forest to find out what is causing an imbalance. Along the journey,she meets a wolf boy looking for the same entity, and they agree to find it together. Both are determined to pursue this force and prove they are capable on their own – but how do you stop a demon?

In February and March 1974, SF writer Philip K. Dick had a series of hallucinatory experiences which influenced the remainder of his personal life and literary career. Although he generally treated these as genuine spiritual revelations, on which he wrote a massive journal commentary he called the Exegesis, he did occasionally consider the possibilities that these visions were symptoms of schizophrenia or a temporal lobe epilepsy. Whatever they were, in 1981 Dick sat with interviewer Gregg Rickman to discuss them, and in the summer of 1986, R. Crumb illustrated some excerpts in Weirdo #17. 2⅔ pages out of 8.

A fish story? )

David Mazzucchelli is probably best-known to this community as the artist on mainstream superhero storylines like Daredevil: Born Again and Batman: Year One. However, after completing the art for those projects, he moved on to indie comics which he wrote as well as illustrated. His Rubber Blanket anthology series and his adaptation (with Paul Karasik) of Paul Auster's City of Glass won some acclaim, but his 2009 magnum opus, the graphic novel Asterios Polyp (Pantheon) created a sensation in the indie/alternative comics world. It earned many enthusiastic reviews, and several awards, for its thought-provoking and moving story, filled with references to classical mythology, as well as its art and layout which played with the form of the comics medium.

Apartment renting. If you're lucky, you get to rent from a reasonable owner and share a building with people and animals who are halfway civilized. If you're not so lucky...you might just be New Yorkers Jane and Stephen from Alex Robinson's graphic novel Box Office Poison (Antarctic Press, 1996-2000; collected ed. Top Shelf, 2002). One page from Issue 4 (Mar 1997); eight pages from Issue 8 (Feb 1998).

Trigger warning for misogynistic slurs.

Karl Stevens is the creator of 'Whatever' and 'Failure,' among other indie comic projects. His current project can be seen every week in the free paper the Boston Phoenix, and online. His highly detailed and shaded sketches can also be seen in Anthony Apesos' "Anatomy for Artists" book.

His work is generally a combination of slice of life and very short stories, with some random sketch and figure studies throughout.

And then there's Olaf.

The chronicles of Olaf, collected in 'Whatever' under cut. 12 large images out of 127 page collected graphic novel.

Olaf is one of God's special creatures )

I found this while looking for an image to place on the previous post, and can't believe we haven't talked about it. Stephen Lindsay's website has the covers of this indie comic. Some covers are gorgeous, so I will post them behind the cut. And no, this is not an April Fool's thing.

Sacrilege and crack with Easter flavor. )

Well, Black History Month has slipped quietly into Women's History Month and I've gone from doing character spotlights to creator spotlights over at Ormes. The most recent creator spotlight? Alitha Martinez (who you may remember from her past work at Marvel)! She's on the creator-owned road now (though I hope Marvel convinces her to come back temporarily for its "Year of the Women") with her work Yume and Ever. Four scans from Yume and Ever beneath the cut!

It's called laying low. )

Hey! I've been doing character/creator spotlights every other day over at Ormes and I thought I'd double up on some of my favorite posts by hitting Scans Daily as well. Next up? Five scans from Brandon Graham's early work Universe So Big.

I'm Broham. )

Thought I'd share a comic I just read called Josh and Imp. Written by Jon Bernhardt and drawn by Diana Nock, it was made for an anthology that never got made.
It's kind of a freeform exploration of the superhero lifestyle, riffing on the Batman and Robin partnership. With kisses. And grappling hooks. It's a bit dialogue-heavy, but it's worth it for the awesome ending. I think you'll like it.

And one page from Robin under the cut )

This is my very first post here, so please be gentle with me. I made an image using the characters from Girl Genius.

For greater legality, three pages from Mystic Funnies No. 2:

Despite all byte crunching, the images are still 335 KB in toto.
