We all know what today is, don’t we, wicked children?
Today is the day our enemies promises are revealed as false–and so we triumph!
Shame about MTV, though.
Ladies and gentlemen, if you have been following this blog you will be aware that Jason Franks will be attending SPX in Bethesda, Maryland this year–his first US appearance since Comic Con 2010. Franks will of course be selling The Sixsmiths and various other books… plus he’ll have a special treat for Sixsmiths fans.
Debuting at SPX will be an ashcan book for the long awaited Sixsmiths vol.02 containing the first chapter of the book, “Blessed Black Wings”, and some preview artwork from some of the other chapters. The ashcans are handmade minicomics and will be available in extremely limited quantities, so make sure you hit him up early.
The kind folks at Modern Myths have read and reviewed vol.01.
If you like lots of good jokes at the expense of the ‘burbs and don’t mind a little adult content while you get them, tryThe Sixsmiths. If you’ve spent time as an outsider and are occasionally inclined to ponder the experience, do try The Sixsmiths. And if you’ve ever thought the best expression to wear while dealing with the question of what’s deviant as opposed to what’s normal is a wry grin, absolutely try The Sixsmiths. I’m sure you can resist the lures of Beelzebub.
The rest of the review is right over here. click on through to see what they thought!
Want to see a scomplete page from Bobby N’s chapter of the new book?
Might be he’s posted one over on his blog.
Bobby’s chapter, for those who are curious, is called ‘Daily Bread’.
We have been stoking the fires of perdition, O wicked followers, and lo: a new voice amongst the Legion.
Please praise and venerate Bobby N., our new brother in Darkness!
Bobby’s Digested, which is one of Australia’s best-known and most-admired independent comics (now published by Gestalt). He’s also the author of the much-reprinted comics novella Withheld. Last year Milk Shadow Books published a collection of his early works called No Map, But Not Lost.
Here’s a sample of his work for Sixsmiths vol.02:
This is not the first time I have worked with Bobby: we did a short piece together for Kagemono called Feeding the Goldfish, which completists among you can also find reprinted in No Map and in my own early work collection, Ungenred.
Welcome aboard, Bobby! It is a great pleasure to have you among us.
