SPX was incredible this year! I am still recovering from all of the incredible talent that just walked around right in front of me. SWOON.

My wife and I brought home quite a haul of books and art. I ended up being a print junkie this year. Here’s some of the awesome that will soon be hanging on my walls…

The Tortoise by Dustin Harbin
Pest Control by Andrea Kalfas
Polypheme and Odyssea bySam Bosma
Little Traveler or Explorer? (I can’t find the name!) by Natalie Andrewson

You can get the “Professional Explorer” print by our featured guest artist Natalie Andrewson in the OOSA Print Shop, but only until the end of the month.

The fabulously weird and spooky horror short, SELFIES on, is now live and ready to be read by you, the reader. (Illo by myself)

It’s really starting to look like 2014 is the year of the giant, oversized offbeat anthology comic. Not only have we gotten books like Cosmic Scoundrels and Giant-Size Kung Fu Bible Stories, but today, Boom! Studios announced the latest offering from their creator-owned imprint, the Boom! Box 2014 Mix Tape, and it already looks amazing.

Clocking in at an oversized 8.5 x 11″, the Mix Tape is set to include a pretty impressive roster, including covers by Teen Dog creator Jake Lawrence and a new Lumberjanes story written  by Noelle Stevenson, and a new story from the award-winning team behind Adventure TimeRyan NorthShelli Paroline and Braden Lamb. And if that wasn’t enough, we have an exclusive look at character designs for four short stories by Rian Sygh, including Teen Prez, which may actually be the Sensational Character Find of 2014.

Boom! Box is, of course, the Boom! Studios imprint that brought us Midas FleshLumberjanes and Teen Dog, so I feel pretty safe in saying that they have a pretty strong track record going into a big anthology that’s meant to show off their roster of creators. That said, I’m more into these truly bonkers high concepts we’re working with here.

Sygh’s designs are for four of the stories included in the 48-page one-shot: Worst Witchesby Paul Maybury, Teen President by Eryk Donovan, Port-a-Potty by Stefan Toshef and Punk Rock Grandma by Alexis Ziritt. Yes. Punk Rock Grandma. There hasn’t been a title that great since… Well, since Teen Dog, I suppose. That one’s pretty hard to top.


"Worst Witches" by Paul Maybury?

"Punk Rock Grandma" by Alexis Ziritt?

You know this is going to be good!

A Shatterstar themed drink and draw broke out Sunday night in the hotel lobby after SPX was over. Ed Piskor just happened to have the 848 page X-Force omnibus on hand for reference, of all things. 

SPX is a strange and wonderful place where beautiful things happen.
