I will be a guest and artist alley tabler at the Sydney Supanova this weekend from the 21-23 June. I’ll be at Table A4. I’m really looking forward to chatting with people and just generally lounging about in a comics atmosphere – and it’s certainly a great show for this. If you are interested in buying any of the stuff in which I’ve written words you can find the details and prices and images below.
FATHERHOOD – a comic one-shot $4
This one-shot comic from Challenger Comics features art from Daniel Schneider, colours by Paulina Ganucheau, letters by Brandon DeStefano, and design from Christopher Kosek. It’s a 22 page standalone story of a father going a little crazy trying to please his daughter. There’s also a back up essay by me on fatherhood, and the cover is pure liquid gold.
Because I’m Australian, and thus postage to the world is hard to afford, I also have the digital version of the book available on the Challenger Comics site. It’s 99c so feel free to get into it.
I’ll also have rad print posters of the cover for $5 each and cool stickers for $1 each.
MY LITTLE PONY MICRO SERIES: RAINBOW DASH #2 – a comic one-shot $5
Rainbow Dash is getting schooled by some very nasty cloud gremlins. How is she going to save Equestria from the saddest event in their lives? Also, how will this book reference MILLER’S DKR, FIGHT CLUB, THE SIMPSONS, and BLADE RUNNER, amongst others?
This one-shot tale set in the MY LITTLE PONY world and focusing on Rainbow Dash features super fantastic art and colours from Tony Fleecs. It’s one of the most fun things I’ve ever written and it’s completely all ages.
I will also have a variety of the US-only variant covers that weren’t available in Australia, so if you want in on that action I don’t feel like gouging so the flat price for any issue is $5.
OXYMORON – a HC comic anthology $25
This book is a collection of comic shorts all about the Oxymoron character from ComixTribe. There is a rogues gallery of creators associated (Paul Allor, Jason Ciaramella, Joe Mulvey, Mark Poulton, Daniel J Logan, John Lees, and a hell of a lot more). I wrote a short story in there, with art from Daniel J Logan, and it’s pretty brutal. Perhaps not for the kidlets but definitely something to sink your teeth into. And all the other stories are dynamite as well. To top it off, it’s an oversozed HC because our Kickstarter went gangbusters.
Treat yourself to this now as I’ll be the Australian exclusive seller of this fine volume. I’m only stocking 24 of these beauties and they are a variety of the variant covers so get in early if you want the A CLOCKWORK ORANGE inspired one or perhaps the jam cover is more to your tastes.
If you aren’t at SydNova you can try your luck on Amazon.
THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS: EXAMINING MATT MURDOCK AND DAREDEVIL – $15
This analytical tome of essays – of which I edited, contributed some, and contracted others into – explores the themes and narratives of Marvel’s Daredevil character. I write about Matt Murdock’s storied love life and how the Brubaker/Lark/Gaudiano run is inspired by cinematic noir from the 70s. Other luminary scholars, including Tim Callahan, Julian Darius, Matt Duarte, write about topics from Mike Murdock, to Daredevil’s relationships with Spider-Man and the Punisher, as well as the science fact involved in the creation of this blind vigilante. As a gigantic Daredevil fan, I can assure you this is the book you need to read.
Because I don’t want to mess around with change, and I’m such a good bloke, I’m selling the book at SydNova for $1 off retail at a clean $15 (though that’s American retail and the book will probably cost you more at your LCS when it drops in August). You are welcome.
BLIND DATES AND BROKEN HEARTS: THE TRAGIC LOVES OF MATTHEW MURDOCK – $5
This Sequart Single volume takes my major essay from the above book and produces it as a standalone purchase. It’s slim, it’s sexy, and it’s only $5; and it’s all from me. I analyse and discuss Matt Murdock’s forays into the romantic battlefields with Karen Page, Elektra, the Black Widow, Typhoid Mary, and Milla Donovan. There is also a special Coda inclusion – but you’ll have to buy it to find out who that is.
Again, if you buy the main book it has this essay so you don’t need it. This is more a sampler or something for the Ryan K Lindsay Completist
LEE – a prose anthology $15
The superb people at CRIME FACTORY have put together an anthology of short stories all about and starring Lee Marvin – I know, right? It’s the coolest idea ever. And I was honoured to be asked to contribute so you can get a tale of old man Lee Marvin in his aged years racing death. It’s a pulpy tale and completely surrounded by even better stuff.
Also, the cover is amazing.
THE DAY I DESTROYED THE WORLD – a comic one-shot anthology $6
The esteemed group at the ACT Comic Meet (legends behind the triumphant BEGINNINGS anthology) decided to make up an anthology one-shot based around the title above. Teams put together two page stories and I’ve got one in there that’s no doubt embarrassingly amateur compared to what surrounds it – and I say this because I wrote it, but also illustrated and lettered it and that’s always going to be ‘interesting.’
You can score a copy from the ACT Comic Meet table over at J1 or I will hopefully have a few on my table throughout the weekend. You should probably buy it for Emma Stewart’s cover alone – it’s boss.
I should be at my table for most of the weekend. I know I’m on at least one panel (details to come) and I absolutely have to go back issue bin diving but otherwise I’m there for a good time so come along and share it with me. I promise you, I’m a man who knows how to chat
I’ll also have Ben Rosenthal sharing my table and being a nuisance and selling copies of SCW and DARE.
Jin Chan Yum Wai will be shilling HIGH SCHOOL ROMANCE next to us.
Queenie Chan will be on my other side, which I’m excited about, and next to her is Tristan Jones.
Facing off across the alley is the intimidating force block of Mark Brooks, Jon Sommariva, David Yardin, and Tom Taylor so that should be fun.
Then around the corner is Chris Claremont and George Pérez, so that should be even more fun.
I hope to see you at SydNova, it’s a great show.
