We’ll debut two books at this year’s MoCCA Arts Festival: Borb from Jason Little and David B.’s Incidents in the Night: Book 2. Jason will be in attendance, as well, to meet readers and sign copies of the book. We’re super excited about the show and the new space! Find us at Table 317 on the third floor. Further information at the official MoCCA site.

We’re thrilled to announce our Fall 2015 line-up today. We’ll publish two new Graphic Novels: the second collection from rising star Sam Alden (It Never Happened Again), and an amazing debut from Minneapolis’ best kept secret, Caitlin Skaalrud. We’re also trying something new: a book of fiction. The Deaths of Henry King is a collaboration between award winning authors Brian Evenson and Jesse Ball that features macabre illustrations from cartoonist Lilli Carré.
The subscription offer for this season is now available, as well. Grab it from our website!
The first review of Jason Little’s Borb is out, and it’s a nice one. Publishers Weekly says “Little’s elegant linework, minimal dialogue, and unwavering focus on the man’s day-to-day struggles are powerful, giving us a gruesome, slapstick view of society’s underbelly.”
Simon Moreton’s new book, Plans We Made, has seen a successful run on Kickstarter. With a day left to fund, the book is beyond its initial funding goal, sitting beautifully just above seven thousand dollars. While the book will be nationally distributed this Fall, there’s still time to support the Kickstarter and pre-order a copy now.
Check out the campaign here. Congrats to Grimalkin Press and Simon!

James (Post York) Romberger conducted a great interview with artist Tonci Zonjic. Zonjic is fairly well-known for his work on Dark Horse Comics’ Lobster Johnson and his Image book, Who is Jake Ellis?. It’s an excuse for two artists obviously influenced by Alex Toth to chat about Toth, and Zonjic has some smart things to say about developing one’s voice.
