I can't believe that shows are rapidly approaching and I haven't made Post One about it. Well, here goes:
Tryptic Press' Super Cool Guy Make-Up Con
April 20, Porter Mills Gallery, Beverly, MA
Now that isn't the official title of this con, but the gentlemen from Tryptic Press (all fellow Montserrat College of Art alumni, along with TJ and myself) decided at VERY short notice to make some calls and emails and round up as many of the BCC artists as possible and stuff them into a local studio/gallery. For free. They are the heroes the North Shore deserves. Hopefully, many of you planning on coming to BCC will find your way to this. Heard of good vibes? These will be BEST VIBES.
Maine Comic Arts Festival
May 19, at the Ocean Gateway, Portland, ME
MECAF is just getting in higher and higher demand every year. I was good signing up for this show, I really was. But we still ended up on a waiting list because the tables sold out in twenty minutes. We made it in once again, though, and it's a good thing. This relatively small, indie-creator-only show is generally the highlight of my year (at least for all things comic-related). Jeff Smith of Bone fame is the special guest this time around.
Philadelphia Comic Con
May 31 - June 2, at the Philadelphia Convention Center
Yeah, this show really starts Thursday, May 30, but hotels ain't cheap. If you've been to the Philly Comic Con before, you know what to expect: lots of comics, lots of artists, a bunch of celebrity guests, and hours of confusion deciding what to eat at Reading Terminal.
Boston Comic Con
August 3-4 at the Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, MA
Woo! Rescheduled! BCC is back on in a different location. Don't know what the situation with guests is going to be, but we'll be there for sure!
Granite State Comic Con
September 28 - 29, at the Radisson Center, Manchester, NH
GraniteCon has moved to the fall, and it's two days now! Neat! This should give us ample time to finish Underburbs #15, so our New England fans don't have to see the same stuff at our table for three consecutive shows.
•••We'll post any additions to this list as they happen!•••
How to order Underburbs issues of your very own:
•Either send us a note here or email us (email@example.com) telling us which issue(s) you'd like to order.
•These are the mail order prices (add an extra $2 to the entire order):
•Regular Issues: $4
•Issue #10 (full color): $4.50
•TPB #1: $11
•TPB #2: $13
•Because nobody likes to pay extra fees, I'll throw in a bonus sketch with every order.
•T-shirts are available to order! They come in two styles: Angela (black graphic on light purple) and Winifred (red graphic on navy blue)
•T-shirt sizes are men's S, M, L, and XL.
•T-shirts are an extra $3 a pop because they require even bigger envelopes. $13 still isn't bad for a T-shirt and a sketch, though.
•Be sure to include your mailing address in the PayPal message
•If for some reason, you can't/don't wanna use PayPal, we accept checks/money orders. It'll just take a little longer since we'll be waiting for your payment to come in the mail.
•Since The Underburbs is not our full-time job yet, those of you who are caught up with the series may find there's a wait between issues. We'll do everything in our power to shorten that wait. As always, we'll keep you posted right here whenever there's a new issue or any other developments.
•Thanks for reading our comic and supporting us! We wouldn't still be doing this without all of you.
