October/November things

Posted in comics, misc, zines by michaeldeforge on October 24, 2012

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Toronto launch party on Sunday! Special thanks to the Beguiling and Chris Butcher for putting us on and to Michael Comeau for interviewing us. Had a good time reading, hanging out, drinking too much soju, etc.

Here’s a rundown of stuff I have coming up for the next 30 days. Me and Patrick Kyle are bringing the East Coast wing of our “not actually a tour” book tour to three other cities.

First off is a signing at The Dragon in Guelph, this coming Saturday at 6pm.

After that, we’re going to Bergen St Comics on Thursday, November 8th in Brooklyn, right before BCGF. With us will be the insanely talented Jane Mai, who is debuting a new book from Koyama Press called Sunday in the Park with Boys.

The following week we’ll be at Librairie Drawn and Quarterly in Montreal on November 15th, 7pm. We’ll be reading and doing some sort of slideshow presentation there, too.

At the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Fest┬áitself (Nov 10), I’ll be tabling with Koyama Press. I’ll be debuting the mini comics Cody, Loose #3 and Molecules (published by Space Face Books.) I’ll also have a new three-page comic in the BCGF issue of Smoke Signal.

And speaking of new minis, the first issue of my Oily Comics series is now available for sale.┬áIf you aren’t an Oily Comics subscriber yet, you should be.

Lastly, I’ll be in Robin McConnell’s “Horror Hangover” show in Vancouver. The opening reception is November 23rd, and a ton of great artists are contributing pieces. Here is a muddy scan of the pen and marker drawing I made for it. It is inspired by my favorite “scary movie,” Todd Haynes’ Safe:

Okay, I think that’s all for now!
