As some of you may know, the international rates via USPS shipping recently doubled again. I.e., sending one copy of “Gut Feelings” (which is less than 6 oz) now costs me over $12 to send to the UK. A bundle of Happiness 1-3 now costs well over $30, save the flat-rate priority shipping envelopes I’ve come to adore, they are then reduced to $24 (which is still more than what I charge for the books combined, and an unfavorable amount to charge for shipping).
I have adjusted my shipping prices in my storenvy to reflect this unfair hike, and understand that this may dissuade much of our international audience from purchasing directly from us in the future.
With that said, we would like to start distributing more to international shops & distros, as shipping in bulk overseas is more cost-effective than to individual readers. Happiness has in the past been available at London retailers GOSH! and Nobrow, as well as Glasgow-based retailer Good Press, and would more than ever, like to do a better job of distributing outside of North America.
If you know of or run an overseas distro that would likely sell a giant art & comics book (and other zines), please message me! I want very much for our international audience to be able to get their hands on our books at an affordable price, and I think at the moment, this might be the best solution.
“On the surface, Leah Wishnia’s anthology GUT FEELINGS visually reads as a tornado of frenetic and (at times) grotesque imagery, brimming with a stream of both rambunctious and tortured characters who are pitched in a mosaic of revolving hallucinogenic experience. It could easily be shelved amongst the vast anthologies from fellow young underground cartoonists, as her rebelliously aggressive style falls in line with a lot of the anarchistic, counterculture-influenced artwork coming from many of her peers. However, to offer such a conclusive generalization would be a naïve and haphazard judgement, ignoring Wishnia as the true erudite artist that she is shaping out to be. A vocal promotor for the use of comics as means to critique society in all its forms, Wishnia is vibrantly aware and entirely unapologetic of the subjects she tackles in GUT FEELINGS, her artistic voice echoing a resounding deference to the idea that “the political is personal.” A combination of memoir, dreamlike make-believe, and penetratingly raw humor, her collection introduces Wishnia as a promising cartoonist and storyteller, paving a future for budding artists to create material that is richly thought-provoking and resisting of the status quo.”
All orders of Gut Feelings will help fund the next Happiness, just fyi B-)

New Sparkplug highlight: Crooked Teeth, by Nate Doyle.
"His autobio comics are joys to read, in a completely different way: spanning both sides of the country and exploring different punk subcultures, old friendship, crushes and love, the touring life and live shows, and fighting through uncertainty and depression, they contain episodes that almost anyone will relate to." Read the rest of the review here; buy the book here.
This issue (#5) is incredibly limited — we only have one left in stock! Buy it quick before someone else does!
20 interior pages, 5.5” x 8.5”, black & white, self-published, $3.00
