The 160 page Occupy Comics Anthology is in stores today. It’s jam packed with a lot of great creators. The story I did with Patrick Meaney is located right after the Alan Moore section. Patrick and I were just getting warmed up with this story, though. Our next comic is going to be a lot bigger. There should be announcement from the publisher very soon.

The next issue of Headspace is out in a week. It’s written by Ryan Lindsay and illustrated by me. There’s also some great backmatter by Dan Hill. I’m pretty happy with how the issue turned out! Also, I have to mention that Chris Peterson and Marissa Louise are taking a break this issue, but you’ll all be getting your fix next month when they return.

Headspace #2

Shane chases his son through the labyrinthine battlefield of Max’s memories and fears. Will he find a way out, and can he trust that path?

It’s currently available for Pre-Order on Comixology.

Headspace #2 is now available for pre-order.
Issue #1 was just the tip of the iceberg as far as the madness goes.
You’ll see. Oh, you’ll see.
Ryan and Eric really let rip with this issue.
Also, as well as editing this fine slab of comic book entertainment, this issue marks the first of my essays in the back matter. This issue I delve into The Prisoner, it’s relevance to today’s political climate, Prism and Edward Snowden.
It’s a madhouse of a comic. Go pre-order it over at ComiXology

OCCUPY COMICS Collected Book Hits Comic Shops This Week
with brand new 10-page story by Amanda Palmer and David Mack

One of the largest coalitions of socially-conscious creators in the history of comics, Occupy Comics will finally bring its complete, collected book to specialty retailers on April 1, with an advance release to comic shops on March 26.

The 160-page book features the work of over 60 creators including Alan Moore (Watchmen, V For Vendetta), David Lloyd (V For Vendetta), Molly Crabapple mollycrabapple (Shell Game), Art Spiegelman (Maus), Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead), J.M. DeMatteis (JLA, Spider-Man), Matt Bors (War Is Boring), Bill Ayers & Ryan Alexander-Tanner (To Teach: The Journey in Comics), Joshua Dysart (Harbinger), Mike Allred (Madman), Matt Miner mattminerxvx (Liberator), Matthew Rosenberg & Patrick Kindlon ashcanpress (12 Reasons To Die), Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night), and dozens more.

Debuting in this collected book is a brand-new, never-before-seen 10-page story by Amanda Palmer amandapalmer (The Dresden Dolls) and David Mack drdavidmrmack (Kabuki, Daredevil).

Founded by Matt Pizzolo (Godkiller) shortly after Occupy Wall Street took over Zuccotti Park in September 2011, Occupy Comics began as a means of spreading the word about Occupy at the 2011 New York Comic Con and evolved into a forum for artistic expression about the goals and themes of Occupy.

Pizzolo and co-organizer Aaron Colter launched a Kickstarter in November 2011 to fund a comic series devoted to creating a time capsule of the Occupy movement and raising funds to support protesters. The Kickstarter campaign earned three-times its funding goal in December 2011. To this day, 100% of Occupy Comics profits are donated to Occupy-related initiatives.

Occupy Comics issues began reaching Kickstarter backers in May 2012, and then new editions began reaching comic book stores in May 2013 through Black Mask Studios, the publisher Pizzolo co-founded with Steve Niles arcaneimages (30 Days of Night) and Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion) to distribute Occupy Comics and other likeminded comics. Black Mask Studios does not take any fees or profits from Occupy Comics.

Although Occupy Comics emerged as a means to support and reflect the Occupy movement, the project developed into a unique aspect of Occupy’s ongoing evolution by presenting a chorus of voices addressing a range of issues and themes as diverse as the movement itself.

Continuing the tradition of boldly political comics from Raw Magazine to WW3 Illustrated to V For Vendetta, Occupy Comics is already a modern classic and it’s not done yet.

"A worthy piece of the 99%’s long overdue payback."
-Scott Thill, Wired

One of 2013’s Best Graphic Novels
-R.C. Baker, The Village Voice

"It feels real and it feels hopeful, it allows you to feel and it doesn’t do your thinking for you. It’s a comic unlike any other comic you’ll find in the shop, for now…"
-Louis Falcetti, Bleeding Cool

"The support of Moore and Lloyd is notable both because of the weight they carry in the comics community, and because it was their comic, V For Vendetta, which first introduced the Guy Fawkes masks regularly worn by Occupy Wall Street protesters."
-Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly

"Thought-provoking, entertaining, & shockingly non-partisan."
-Brett Schenker, Graphic Policy

"Fuck this comic for being so good."
-Jamil Scalese, Comics Bulletin

Grab it today at your local comic shop, order it direct from Black Mask Store, or pre-order it now on Amazon.

[The incredible David Mack (whose beautiful art graces the cover of Occupy Comics as well as the preview pages we’ve embedded) has his own Kickstarter going right now, please help spread the word: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/337503446/david-mack-muse-life-drawings-2012-2014 ]

Justin Greenwood Pin Up: Unlocked

Man, Justin is amazing. Like, next level amazing. He should be doing more covers. And because we couldn’t decide after Marissa Louise coloured the pin up, we thought we’d offer all three versions; the coloured pin up, the muted palette pin up, and Justin’s bare inks. All are insanely gorgeous.

Justin is currently illustrating THE FUSE at Image with Antony Johnston, Shari Chankhamma, and Ed Brisson. It’s awesome, check it out.
