Northwest Press is headed to Comic-Con next weekend! Come by booth #2144 (Prism Comics) and say howdy to Dylan Edwards (Transposes), Jon Macy (Fearful Hunter), Charles “Zan” Christensen (The Power Within), and lots more great creators!
Every year, Zan helps polish up The Gay Agenda for Comic-Con International, which gives congoers a one-stop shop for all things LGBT at the Con. This year’s booklet, compiled by Andy Mangels, features a beautiful cover by Tara Madison Avery and Mike Sullivan, and is chock full of great panels, events, and info for the discerning queer comics fanatic.
The booklet will be available at the Prism Comics mega-booth (#2144, at the back of Hall C) and will also be available in convenient digital form online. Check out prismcomics.org for more info!
knowhomo said: Hi, my name is Rebecca and I'm one of the co-moderators on KNOWhomo and more importantly, a huge fan of NORTHWEST PRESS. My partner even knows my love and gifted me Qu33r this week for my birthday. I'm excited to hear you'll be coming to D.C. for Out Write. I find myself rearranging my budget to buy more on site that day than I have online. I wanted to say thank you for all you do. Seriously. It is a lot. The dramaturg and comic/graphic nerd in me is deeply thankful. -- Keep On, Keeping On! -R.
Aw! Thanks for the props!
We are thrilled to be coming back to the D.C. area (my childhood home!) to spread the gospel of LGBT comics at OutWrite. And we’ll have a bunch of new titles to show off! :-D
For those folks who aren’t in the DC area, don’t despair. We’re doing a lot of shows this year and might be in your area, too. Our full convention schedule is here: http://northwestpress.com/events/
Come see us in San Francisco this Sunday! Sunday! Someday! where we’ll be celebrating the first (hopefully ANNUAL) Queer Comics Expo at the Cartoon Art Museum!
We’re hosting a panel discussion about the mainstreaming of queer characters and creators in comics, called “Queer Comics… in Every Direction”. That will happen from 1:30 to 2:30, and will feature Jon Macy (FEARFUL HUNTER), Agnes Czaja (ANYTHING THAT LOVES), and Ed Luce (WUVABLE OAF), with Northwest Press publisher Charles “Zan” Christensen moderating.
We’ll also have a table set up all day with a huge array of comics from NWP and beyond, and other goodies.
Full details about the event here:
Forgot to post this earlier this week because I’m dumb! Ashley the Intern did a great cartoon celebrating Northwest Press’ journey north of the border this weekend at VanCAF in Vancouver. Come see us today at Roundhouse Mews from 11-5!
Jon Macy’s FEARFUL HUNTER has arrived! Without a doubt our most delectable release to date.
Ashley the Intern is back with the scoop on the Capitol Hillbillies collection that’s in Diamond PREVIEWS this month! That’s right, Chris Lange’s first collection of thoroughly depraved, silly, and entirely hilarious comics is available for stores to order right now, so make sure to let your local shop know you want a copy! (It’s item number MAY141493.)
Ashley the Intern has set up the disco ball and invited some of the characters from NWP’s books to a dance party! (Can you spot them all?)
You can join that party this Saturday at 7pm at TRUCK in San Francisco, as we celebrate the imminent release of Jon Macy’s new epic, FEARFUL HUNTER and all our great queer comics. With book giveaways, handsome cartoonists, and music by Double Duchess' davO, it’s sure to be a booty-shakin, big-smilin’ good time! (We probably won’t remember much the next day, so we’ll be sure to take lots of pictures.)
See you there!
