Youth in Decline’s flagship publication is Frontier, a slim but essential Risographed book featuring the work of one cartoonist. Past issues have spotlighted Uno Moralez, Hellen Jo, Sascha Hommer, Ping Shu and now Sam Alden. And here’s the cover. The issue goes on sales at SPX and will feature a new 36-page comic by Alden.
Alden’s work has already been published by Uncivilizaed, and his “Hawaii 1997” has been widely anthologized. Expect this to be a hot ticket item at SPX!
