It wouldn’t be a West Coast Tour without a stop at the Alternative Press Expo. We’ll be there all wekkend. Our table is 126.
Gabrielle Bell will be at our table as part of her West Coast Tour in support of The Voyeurs. She will be signing and drawing in books on both days.
Tom Kaczynski will be there both days as well. Check out his mini-comics and ask him about his forthcoming books: Beta Testing the Apocalypse and Trans Terra.
On Sunday we will have a special guest: Zak Sally! He will be signing copies of his amazing, hand-printed collection of Sammy the Mouse Vol. 1. Stop by and ask him about Sammy the Mouse Vol. 2 (coming next year from us!) We haven’t been at this show for a few years and we’re excited to attend it again. Stop by (remember, table 126!) and say hello!
We’ve been very quiet lately. That’s because we’re brewing up some amazing things behind the scenes. This morning (Friday, 6/15) Uncivilized Books & La Mano are packing into a car and driving to the Windy City in time for some CAKE: the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo! All weekend we’ll be showing off some of our recent efforts. Here’s what you can expect to see:
July Diary by Gabrielle Bell. One comic for every day of the month of July. Who knew one month could pack such a punch! Includes several pages of Gabrielle’s process comics. 40 pages!
Structures 12-23 by Vincent Stall. The response to the first volume of the Structures series was overwhelming. We decided to expand it into a series. We’re inviting some of our favorite artists & cartoonists to contribute a Structures book of their own.
Cartoon Dialectics Vol. 2 by Tom Kaczynski. We sold out of the first edition of this very quickly. We decided to go back to print. It’s got a new cover and the whole thing was printed by the blood, sweat and tears of Zak Sally on his infamous La Mano press.
Before CAKE even starts, Gabrielle and Tom are going to be at Brain Trouble doing some live drawing or reading panels or both or neither. In any case, they’ll be there!
If you’re in Chicago, please come and visit our table (#27). Gabrielle & Tom K are going to be hanging out at our table and will be happy to sign books and answer questions about the tools we use, French literature, New Wave film, the crisis of Capitalism and the future of architecture. Feel free to bring your own favorite topics. See you there!
Uncivilized Books will be exhibiting at TCAF (table 116). We’ll have copies of all of our publications, including the brand new True Swamp!
On Sunday Tom Kaczynski will be participating in a panel on Print Culture (1:15 – 2:00). The panel will be moderated by Zak Sally and will also include John Porcellino and Dylan Williams!
See you in Toronto!
