Just had a very sweet convo with our facilities manager who said, “When I took this job, I figured it would feel like getting punched in the face seven times a day. It’s really more like ten, but I still like it,” which is a p accurate assessment of working here as far as I can tell.

best zine distro of all time // RIP // always in my heart

Like so many, I credit Pander not just with my interest in reading/making zines, but also for my friendships with so many amazing and wonderful people. If it wasn’t for the Pander message board, I would have missed out on some tremendous friendships. I still miss some of the regular old daily life threads on that board - what are you wearing today, what are you reading, what are you eating. So many little details of life to be shared and explored!

I don’t want to feel again

This soooonnnggggg my all-time teenage jam!

"To love a swamp, however, is to love what is muted and marginal, what exists in the shadows, what shoulders its way out of mud and scurries along the damp edges of what is most commonly praised. And sometimes its invisibility is a blessing. Swamps and bogs are places of transition and wild growth, breeding grounds, experimental labs where organisms and ideas have the luxury of being out of the spotlight, where the imagination can mutate and mate, send tendrils into and out of the water."

Dear Students,

This sweeeeet song is full of images. If you are stumped about what to do for your final project maybe you can play a song you love like I love this song and make it the launch pad to start getting somewhere right away.

O! It’s true!

Your final project can be started by something as ordinary and extraordinary as a scene that’s called to mind by a song.

I’m just sayin’!

Sincerely

Prof. Chewbacca

I can feel it today, that summer feeling. It’s going to be a good one, right? Let’s all drink some beers in the park and play some bocce and croquet soon, okay?

A comiXologist Recommends:
Coleman Engle recommends Lumberjanes #1

Lumberjanes is an awesome new series from BOOM! Studios’ new imprint BOOM! Box that showcases the tremendous talents of numerous up and coming women in the industry.

 The story, written by Noelle Stevenson (gingerhaze) and Grace Ellis (ohheygrace) is about a small group of friends and their time at a summer camp for “hardcore lady types”. With this first issue we are introduced to the main members of The Roanoke Cabin: Mal, Molly, April, Ripley and Jo. Out late one night, they come across three-eyed foxes, a cryptic message and an agitated camp counselor…all in a day’s work! While the girls are off getting into trouble, magic and mystery flicker around the panels. It’ll be exciting to see what’s in store for them!

 The artwork is done by Brooke Allen (brookeallen) whose incredible sense of line weight, storytelling and attention to detail make each page a knockout. Allen (who put out a book called A Home For Mr. Easter with NBM, which can be downloaded on comiXology) is no stranger to cartooning, taking inspiration from Blutch, Akira Toriyama, and Jeff Smith and creating her own engaging and stellar worlds.

Adding to the charm of each page are beautiful colors by Maarta Laiho and hand lettering by Aubrey Aiese. The marriage of Allen’s art, Laiho’s colors and Aiese’s bubbly, playful words seems effortless.

 If this first issue is telling of how the series is going to be, we should all be super stoked to see more! Like, SUPER stoked!
