In conjunction with our Fall Books Kickstarter, William Cardini is detailing the bizarre and fascinating origin story of Vortex's main character, the Miizzzard on his blog.  Give it a read, you won’t be disappointed!  Afterwards, be sure to hop on over to our Kickstarter page to help turn these comics into a beautiful graphic novel.

Welcome new followers! Here’s a comic I’ve never before posted online in full, “The Miizzzard of the Year One Million ATTACKS the Floating Crystal Witch.” Originally published in Future Shock #2, edited by Josh Burggraf.

For more adventures of the Miizzzard, preorder my graphic novel Vortex from the Sparkplug Books Kickstarter. Only 18 days to go in our campaign!

Preorder a copy of the collected Vortex in the Sparkplug Fall Books Kickstarter campaign. Only 22 days left! I really appreciate everyone who’s donated so far, we’ve raised over $1500! Pages above from the third issue.

Here’s the comic I did for The Hairpin, in case you missed it!

I’m splitting my time between writing and drawing the end of DUMB while also producing new comics for HP for the next however-long-they’ll-let-me. If you want to see the end of DUMB, get it here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/get-dumb-done/x/1685860

And stay tuned to the Hairpin for more originals!

it’s HAPPENING!

To help promote our Fall Books Kickstarter, we’ll be putting up the first three pages of Reich #12 this week.  Please check them out and take a moment to get into the story.  Then consider contributing or sharing!  This book can only be published with your help.  To everyone who has already given or shared, thank you so much!  We really appreciate it. 

If we can get the funds up to $3000 by Sunday, I will post page four on Monday, so if you’ve been waiting to contribute, now’s the time to do so!

You can check out the rest of the Reich series in our store!

It is time!  
From across the country and across the globe and across town, the best and brightest in independent comics are descending on the unlikely location of Bethesda, Maryland (ok, North Bethesda. OK, fine maybe it’s Rockville you pedants, you’re messing up my point), which is the ancestral home of the Small Press Expo, which turns 20 years old in 2014.  
And, if I may say, we have quite a party in store for you all this weekend.
The good news is, you’re ALL INVITED!
23,000 square feet of comics await you!  280 tables, 700 cartoonists!
SPX is waiting for you!

If you’re gonna be at SPX today, be sure to say hi to Sparkplug!  Table J9B!
