So I don’t make these kinds of posts often (only once?), but I wanted to now because I got sent an assortment of free comics from Anthony Meloro(!) And since I do it so rarely, here’s some other recent tumblr-related buys as well. (The cut-off point for recent being placed at a point that doesn’t make me feel too bad for buying too much stuff, extended to include Ebbits because I really should have mentioned that when I got it, and because Ebbits is great. Also ruling out people that are too high profile, for the same reasons and because it feels pointless for me to mention them. The cut-off point for that going right below Patrick Kyle(because I buy everything he does))
I wasn’t really familiar with Anthony Meloro’s comics from before, but I was glad to get to read some of them now. They were initially kind of bewildering to me, since they seem to build on a comics tradition I’m not too familiar with — that being American action/crime/b-list superheroics (I’m Norwegian). They don’t really have long, elaborate narratives either — reading more like a feverish highlight reel/recap-of-last-week’s-episode held together by the iconic nature of what would usually be called genre tropes or cliches. You should have a look if you haven’t already. He’s been posting some fun reviews of some of those genre comics on his blog recently as well. I put up two photos of the insides also, since he forgot to write “do not duplicate” in them.
The other comics are: 1) Paranoid Apartment & In the Up Part of the Wave by Lala Albert, Mimi and the Wolves & Eye of Horus by Alabaster, Ebbits 0 & 1 by Michael Litven and a bunch of comics by Mickey Z. et. al.
2) Hot Dog Beach 1 & 2 by Lale Westwind, Emmy by JMKE, Crawdads 3 by Karissa Sakumoto, Backyard & Patron Saint by Sam Alden, In Situ 1, 2 & 3 by Sophie Yanow, Sonatina 1 & 2 by V/A and Gut Feelings by Leah Wishnia, with a drawing that I liked a lot.
Yesterday in Thailand, riot cops yield to peaceful protesters by removing barricades AND their helmets in a shocking gesture of solidarity.

thanks everyone!!!!!!! the Mothers News Year IV Subscription Drive And Necessary Fundraiser is, as could be expected, a complete success. we have met our funding goal of $15,000 with an hour left to spare. thanks to everyone who contributed, whether by subscribing or by talking about it to others!
the special offers (tote bag, letterpress print, embroidered patch etc) will be rendered unavailable for purchase at midnight tonight (15 minutes from this posting). so this is exactly the last chance to get in on these things.
thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! jacob mothers news
What a lineup though.
sehnsucht-weltschmerz replied to your post: I was there last year and someone did a piece where they rented three planes with streamers behind them. The streamers read something to the effect of “We’re rich” “We do what we want” “Blah blah blah blah” and I thought that was pretty funny.
So hey! Big announcement! The Ditko! Zine Library will hosting its first ever small press / zine / comics festival this coming February at the Silent Barn. More details to come, but follow http://paperjamfest.tumblr.com/ for more updates and information about our exhibitors.
