What I Got at Linework NW 2015


Here's a rundown of what I picked up at Linework NW over the weekend. This does not include the amazing archaeopteryx print from Reid Psaltis. They're alphabetical so I don't play favorites:

  • 36 Bear Delux (prose/comics combo anthology, including Reid Psaltis)
  • Alone Forever by Liz Prince (last book from Liz we didn't have)
  • Bird Girl and Fox Girl by Yumi Sakugawa (her Sparkplug mini I didn't have)
  • CE/ZE by Suzette Smith (newest Sparkplug mini!)
  • Dream Gardens and Sculpture Gardens 1 by Sean Christensen A.B.T (cool-looking story and an abstract)
  • Everything Eventually Connects (one of Nobrow's pop-up books!)
  • Gems, John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, PDX 100, and Second Chances by Matt Sundstrom (Amazing work doing drawings of real places and things, and so affordable I bought almost everything he had.)
  • Indy 1 (promo material for the consortium of micro pubs working together for Diamond coverage)
  • Invincible Summer/Clutch splits 21/24 and 22/25 (longstanding comic zine work)
  • Limited Edition Linework Sketchbook mini from Luke Ramsey
  • Magic Whistle 14 from Sam Henderson (another great set of comedic comics)
  • Middle #1 by Lisa Rosalie Eisenberg (newest comic from a long-time favorite)
  • Milk Carrots 3 anthology, including Malachi Ward, with a sci-fi theme
  • Miniature Bestiary Vol 1 and 2 by Sera Stanton (two cool art minis I missed at Short Run, was happy to get at this show)
  • Non-Binary by Melanie Gilman (An autobio comic about their non-binary gender status, a subject very important to me)
  • Runner Runner's latest anthology
  • Structures 1-11 mini by Tom Kaczynski (art mini from Uncivilized that looked cool)
  • Vision Quest (new alt comix tabloid from Portland)


I can't wait to read them, and of course, review my favorites for Panel Patter over the course of the year!
