Portland’s LInework NW comic arts festival is on indefinite hold, meaning Comics Town, USA doens’t have its own indie show.
New comics! SF madness from Zack Soto, boxing fantasy from Neil Kleid, Jake Allen and Frank Reynoso; NYC history from Julia Wertz; a collection from Andrea Tsurumi; an intense Italian micropress; and a controversial kickstarter is finally coming to print.
There haven’t been many new developments in the “Future comics” category of late; that is comics that use animation, gifs, or other tablet- or web-based technology as a storytelling tool, beyond Madefire’s leading the category. It seems like motion comics and the costs of developing platforms have sort of put this on the backburner…plus guided view and the like are now such a standard aspect of reading comics that they don’t elicit much comment.
Zack Soto has a new print edition of his comic, Secret Voice out for The Brooklyn Comics and Graphic Festival. It’s a 48 page handful of A-MAY-ZING. Enjoy an excerpt below. Shannon OLeary
