Hey guys, CAKE’s this weekend, right? I’m pretty excited! So many of my favorite people are going to be there and I’ll be sitting next to a lot of them! Sharing elbow room with Czap Books will be Mimi Chrzanowski, Dailen Williams, Cathy G. Johnson, Olivia Horvath and Jessi Zabarsky! Millionaire row.
I’m going to have my usual set up, with copies of my newest piece “He fought like a little tiger in a trap,” a collaboration with Cathy, as well as a few copies of Josh Burggraf’s Future Shock 4. If you were tryin to get this at TCAF with no luck, be sure to swing by early - it’s a great one.

Come see Simon at SPX 2013! Make his trip to our shores memorable, profitable and kind like I know you can, America.
this is an astonishing sequence of panels, I like this a whole bunch. Very evocative with just a few swooshing lines per panel. It feels kinetic. Cartoonists have been dealing with motion since comics were invented. There’s no one way or one set of ways to handle the concept. It is always an abstraction of reality. It just so happens that this sequence is particularly effective, if you ask me.
“Smoo” comics by Simon Moreton. Check him out with the Retrofit group at Small Press Expo this September.
So a few weeks back we informally dropped that Heidi MacDonald of The Beat had generously offered her minicomics collection to SPX as a contribution to the Small Press Expo Permanent Collection at the Library of Congress.
Well it’s time to start sharing some of this cool stuff with you, all of which will be documented and accessible for all time at the LOC - forever preserving these independent voices in comics and cartooning.
Three great books start us off, including circa 2000 work from Craig Thompson, Dave Roman, Jason Ho, Jeff Zornow and Matt Feazell!
Take a look!
That time that guy Frank came to SPX and brought some minicomics.
The Sleep of Reason is a 360-page black-and-white anthology of horror comics for mature readers. Inspired by likes of Taboo, Uzumaki and Black Hole, this collection is devoid of the familiar by design. There are no garden-variety monsters in The Sleep of Reason; no well-worn terrors from film and television. This is an anthology of comics that strive to inspire unparalleled dread.
No monsters with a rule book. No easy answers.
If you’d like to see the rest, please help fund the book over at Kickstarter! There are some really cool rewards—$100 can get you the book plus an original page from our story—and the lineup is intimidatingly cool.
I drew this page and several with it for a cool short! Send this bad boy your money!
