We provided an advance copy of How i Made the World to Ken Carson, manager of comics retailer That's Entertainment in Worcester, MA, who says, "'HiMtW' is a wonderfully crafted, personal story in the fine indy tradition of Tomine and Los Bros. Hernandez."
He goes on to note that "Writer Liz Plourde richly evokes the anxiety and restless doubts I imagine every college student feels. The particulars of the protagonist's surroundings, dreams and thoughts are amusingly odd and convincing. As she buckles under the monstrous weight of a finals project, there's a journey through night that ends in epiphany.
"Randy Michaels' art is also a revelation--clever layouts, clean and energetic lines, and expert spotting of blacks. His expressive art supports and deepens the characters and themes. Excellent, rewarding fun!"
We're excited to announce How i Made the World #1will premiere at
the Maine Comics Arts Festival (MeCAF) in May!
This very special event hosted by
Casablanca Comics will be held at The Portland Company Complex. We were
selected to exhibit our book along with over 100 talented writers, artists, and
publishers. Come get your signed copy before they hit the shelves!
The debut issue ofHow i Made the Worldwill be listed in the April edition of Diamond Distributors'Previewsmagazine, on sale in comic stores around the globe on March 26. From this catalog, comics readers will be able to order their very own copy of Issue No. 1, which will arrive in stores this June.
We'll be running a half-page ad in the Previews catalog. Putting the ad together was quite the creative experience! With the help of our stalwart supporters, Henry, Ed and Dom, we were able to turn our primitive, initial sketch into something we really like. Our special thanks to Caitlin McGurk, whose positive review of How i Made the World forms the centerpiece of our ad. Liz & Randy
