BMore Into Comics #4 is this Saturday at the Wind Up Space in Baltimore, MD. Come on out and buy stuff from me and a bunch of other very talented and charismatic cartoonists.
Superstition dictates that I buy a copy of any comic I had some part in when it comes out. Today was the first time I’ve ever bought two at a time.
And now a word from the Producer and Editor and Chief of the previous 4 issues of Washington DC’s own comic book anthology newspaper - Magic Bullet, CAROLYN BELEFSKI

I’m excited! I think this is the best Magic Bullet yet! And I’m not just saying that.

Probably one of my favorite Nightmare the Rat strips I’ve ever done is in this issue.

Shutter #4! July 9th! Skeletons! Robots! Rat Kids! Ghosts! Poker! Elephant Guns! BANG! BANG!
Leila del Duca draws it. Owen Gieni colors it. I write it. Ed Brisson letters it. You read it…? FIND OUT ON WEDNESDAY.
P.S.: Just confirmed Shutter, Vol. 1: Wanderlost TP is gonna be coming out in November, collecting #1-6. IMPORTANT NOTICE: This ONLY collects the SHUTTER lead feature so none of the bonus comics, Tiger Lawyers, letters columns, Shea Hennum essays, along with the many other single-issue exclusive perks will be collected. So — PLEASE pre-order the single issues as that’s the one way to GET IT ALL (it also helps us/the series tremendously and we personally love you for it).
Out this Wednesday! Here’s a little preview.
These boxes used to be in my house. The 25 on the right are all single issues. The pile in the back left corner is Plastic Farm: Sowing Seeds, and the other 15 boxes are Fertilizers and Seasons of Growths.
And, as a reminder, PLASTIC FARM single issues #1-12 are only ONE DOLLAR EACH, or the entire set FOR ONLY TEN BUCKS.
I should, now that I think about it, make some sort of package deal for the three books with spines.
It has reached the point where I need to move my inventory of PLASTIC FARM books out of my house and into storage. One of the largest portions of that inventory is PLASTIC FARM #1-12. In order to reduce the amount I’ll need to put into storage, I’m putting those single issues online for what I’ve been selling them for at conventions.
I’ve also got some reasonably priced original artwork in the store as well, and once you finish reading 1-12 you’re gonna want to continue by reading PLASTIC FARM: FERTILIZER and PLASTIC FARM: SEASONS OF GROWTH IN THE FIELDS OF DESPAIR.
