Damn it so many great artists and publishers are gonna be at SAFARI this Saturday!!! Fuck that pretty little nob row elcaf thing, THIS will be a measurement of interesting comics in the UK!!!!
Wish we could be there!
Copies of Happiness #4 may be available at Safari this weekend with Antoine Cossé at the Breakdown Press table or at the Good Press Gallery table. Unless the shipments of books didn’t arrive in time, which they probably didn’t. Ask anyway!
Future Man just returned from RIPExpo in Rhode Island and brought these goodies back to Bellingham!
- Happiness Vol. 3 + 4 edited by Leah Wishnia - This is an awesome comics anthology that captures the energy and excitement of the independent creators’ movement better than anything else I’ve come across.
- Mimi and the Wolves Act I: The Dream by Alabaster - The first book in an epic tale of affairs, alliances, and friendships in a quest for power and self-discovery.
Really awesome stuff, now available for checkout!
Happiness #4 now available to check out at The Bellingham Alternative Library!
tonylamothe said: What is the best way to submit art and/or music?
Email happinesscomix (at) gmail (dot) com introducing yourself and your work (a link to a website or portfolio works best). Please note that since the 4th issue just came out I do not plan to start putting together the next issue for at least another year…
However I do try to post open calls for submissions to other comic/art publications on here when I stumble upon them!
Plummeting through endlessness. Me Nut Nut Nut 3 randomness.
Excerpt of one of three pages i have in Happiness Comix #4, edited and published by Leah Wishnia. Its huge and theres a butt ton of cool shit in there, including a large feature on punk flyer art and a cd. Happiness cover art by Jordan Speer.
happinesscomix.net and happinesscomix.tumblr.com for more info
i also have a few copies at papertowncany.bigcartel.com
Also this just in: The “Happiness Music Compilation” can now be streamed on bandcamp. All orders of the book come with a free digital download of the album, in addition to the physical CD. happinesscomix.bandcamp.com .
And if I didn’t already mention this — all remaining pre-orders (and new orders) for #4 are going out this week! + Currently available at Dripper World & Bluestockings, soon available at Desert Island (dropping off books 2morro), additional retailers tba soonish.
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??!?!?!??!?!
We don’t have a table at SPX this year but am wondering if it would be worth it to just show up and walk around and give out/trade/sell happiness #4 from a tote bag? Maybe that’s not allowed though, I don’t know.
Not sure that there would even be any demand for the new issue there, what with the sheer size of the event and number of exhibitors, but it would be nice for the new issue to be available somewhere at the event just in case?
WHAT DO YOU THINK, INTERNET????
To anyone who ordered Happiness or anything else from the spithouse storenvy in the last few weeks, please check your spam box for anything from “lvwlvwlvwl” or “happinesscomix” (both gmail addresses).
from the sounds of it, it seems like my messages to customers are going directly into their spam boxes not the main inbox … :P
I have been nominated for an Ignatz Award in Promising New Talent!
Thanks to the jurors for the nomination!
Attendees are the voters. So if you come to SPX next month, September 13 - 14, you can vote! Check out all the other nominees.
For your reading ease, here are the three comics of mine that are part of my nomination:
Boy Genuis is a combination of two pieces.
- The comic can be read on my website here
- The physical copy also includes my drawing + writing piece, She sighed and crumpled to the floor…, which can be read here
- Physical copy can be purchased here
Until It Runs Clear is also a combination of pieces.
- The book begins with the comic behind every young girl’s arse…
- and ends with the comic Until It Runs Clear, and also has various drawings and paintings.
- Images of the physical copy can be seen here.
- Physical copies are out of stock, and I will be reprinting it for SPX.
I’m also going to have a new comic debuting at SPX titled Dear Amanda. More on that soon!
Thanks, I hope to see you at SPX!
Congratulations to Happiness #4 contributor Cathy G Johnson on their ignatz nomination!!!! :D
THIS FRIDAY! August 15th, 7 - 9pm at Bluestockings Bookstore in NYC:
"Blood & Happiness" - a father/daughter joint book event/reading/presentation!
Join award-winning crime writer Kenneth Wishnia, in the debut of the re-release of his novel BLOOD LAKE (PM Press). He will be reading a passage from the 5th book in his Filomena Buscarsela series, which is about the dangerous and destabilizing conditions that have led to so much migration of Latin American refugees to the U.S.
This will be followed by a presentation by Leah Wishnia, cartoonist and editor of Happiness Comix. She will be doing an “animated” reading/screening of her comic featured in the new issue of Happiness.
The two will then discuss how they use distortion, humor and the grotesque to depict society’s absurdities in their work and publications, and questions will be opened up to the audience.
Copies of Blood Lake and Happiness #s 3 & 4 will be available at the event for purchase & signing! Please consider attending if you live in the NYC-area. You may RSVP here on Facebook.
