District Comics has hit the streets (a month ahead of the time). The book really does look great. The printing and binding are fantastic, and I was pretty worried about how my colors on Burn, Washington, Burn would print. I had no reason to worry.
We’re going to be having our first signing for the book on Sunday, Aug. 19, from 3-5 pm at One More Page Books in Arlington, VA. I think there is going to be around 20 of the contributors there, which is going to be a blast. And knowing us we’ll probably find a place for a drink afterwards.
Plastic Farm: Sowing Seeds on Fertile Soil available for pre-order
My friend and colleague Rafer Roberts has a new collection of his book Plastic Farm available for pre-order.
Let me tell you that this book is weird. Very very weird. And really great. I know he just went through a massive re-lettering process for this edition and it’s got some great guest artists (Danielle Corsetto, Dennis Culver, Dave Morgan, Wendi Strang-Frost and Jake Warrenfeltz).
He’s sent me the info for it, so take it away Rafer!
PLASTIC FARM: SOWING SEEDS ON FERTILE SOIL in in the April Preivews and can be ordered using code: APR110754.
There is a downloadable order form here: http://plasticfarm.com/ssofs-order.pdf that folks can fill out and give to their local comics peddler. The book is also available for pre-order on Amazon: http://amzn.to/hT12R0.
Written and (mostly) drawn by Rafer Roberts, Plastic Farm follows the life of a man named Chester and his slow descent into complete insanity and chronicles how that madness reshapes the world around him. Chester has had a rough childhood, has a magic cowboy that rides a dinosaur living inside of his head, and is now, late in life, sitting in a nameless airport bar during a blizzard telling his life story to a group of people who really couldn’t care less.
Throw some money a local artist’s way and check out a book that has actually disgusted reviewers, but just makes me laugh. It’s just so freaking weird.
Disclaimer: I’ve known Rafer for years and have worked with him on a short that will show up this fall. But that’s all besides the point.
