Year in and year out, Chris Pitzer's AdHouse Books is a small press publisher you can count on to have amazing books that feature some of the best creators working, usually from mini-comics and building their way out to a larger collection, though sometimes stars in their own right.
|Katie Skelly's Operation Margarine|
Though not debuting anything new at SPX itself, this year's publications are no exception, as Chris brings books from Noah Van Sciver, Katie Skelly, and a reprint co-created by Jim Rugg with him as 2014 releases.
Pitzer and AdHouse will be hosting a series of signings from authors who have books with him. This is a tentative schedule, and subject to change, but presented here to help you, if you want to meet an author of one of the many great books available from the publisher. Taken from Pitzer himself, the links should direct you to their AdHouse books:
A brief rundown of the 2014 books:
|Noah Van Sciver's Youth is Wasted|
Operation Margarine by Katie Skelly is about two young women who go off the grid for their own personal reasons, many of which are kept hidden from the reader--and each other. Riding off on motorcycles, this unlikely pair find common ground in wanting to get away. With great use of the black and white art, pithy dialogue, and female characters who are bad-ass, this was a lot of fun to read and is highly recommended.
|Rugg's Street Angel|
AdHouse has been a part of SPX since 2002, and they show no signs of slowing down. Make sure you stop by Chris's table when you're at SPX this year!
