I am going to be in Seattle this weekend from the 1st to the 3rd of March, 2013, for the Emerald City Comic Con (ECCC). I’ll be at Table G-01 with my #makecomics spirit animal, Paul Allor.
There will be certain things available in which I have words. Here are their details.
FATHERHOOD comic one-shot – $4
This emotional noir crash about a father’s love for his daughter warping when he breaks down and enters an imaginary pulp landscape is a gruelling story of love and chasing down what you feel you need, whether it’s by car, foot, or bleeding knuckle.
Featuring art by Daniel Schneider, colours from the incomparable Paulina Ganucheau, letters from Brandon DeStefano, and design from the sublime Christopher Kosek, this book was an emotional task to create. The result is 22 pages of high stakes narrative with a back up essay and one of the finest covers I’ve ever seen on a comic.
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.
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 ECCC for $1 off retail at a clean $15. 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 🙂
OXYMORON HC – $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 ECCC exclusive seller of this fine volume – and I can sign it and so can Paul Allor (contributor himself and conveniently sitting right next to me).
If you aren’t at ECCC you can try your luck on Amazon or wait for it to be Diamond solicited soon (sans the names of Lindsay and Allor scrawled inside them).
HEADSPACE – free for your peepers
I’m bringing a pitch with me to ECCC. It’s for a prospective miniseries and features art from Eric Zawadzki.
Headspace is about Shane Garraty, the sheriff of Carpenter Cove, discovering his town is actually a construct created by the government within the mind of a spy to mine information and memories from him. Garraty then discovers the spy was the man who murdered his son. Amidst a full scale attack from the spy’s disturbed memories and fears, Garraty must find a way to survive so he can bring the man to justice.
If you ask, I’ll be more than happy to show you the preview 5 pages and awesome design work of Ryan Ferrier.
Yep, I’m also bringing some cool FATHERHOOD merch with me. I’ll have:
Poster prints of the gorgeous cover at 12 x 18 on card stock – $6
And stickers (because I LOVE stickers) at 3.75 x 3.75 – $2
I’m going to try and get around the con, I have a list of things in my notebook already that I need to remember to buy, but otherwise please find me at Table G-01 and hit me up for a chat. I’m always keen to talk comics or pretty much anything – I actually find it hard to sow down once you get me started. I’ll also have my iPad on there so you might want to scope out some sweet art for forthcoming things like my MLP one-shot, or my #beachnoir project.
I look forward to seeing you all there!
