Flu Drawings

Posted in comics, zines by michaeldeforge on September 25, 2013

I had a weird, 24-hour flu on Monday, so I made some drawings on a couch that turned into this eight page story. I coloured it Tuesday. It will be risographed by Colour Code Printing and available in an edition of 200 later this month.

Hey! Just found out this zine I made for Tom Kaczynski “Structures” series will be out in time for TCAF this weekend. They’ll be on sale at the Uncivilized Books table, and maybe for sale (or at least display) at mine as well!

For those of you who aren’t coming to TCAF, it is available to preorder from the Uncivilized site.

Cover design by Tom K!

Also, Uncivilized Books artist James Romberger interviewed me for Publishers Weekly.

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 itself (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. If 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!

Loose #2

Posted in zines by michaeldeforge on August 21, 2012

The cover and some of the interior pages of Loose #2, a quick sketchbook zine I made. I’m dropping off a few copies at the Beguiling the rest will be available for free at Frank Santoro’s comic sale this Saturday, which I am attending.
