small world after all

Well, the initial announcement of our Ax news seems to have everybody excited (which is really gratifying — thanks, guys). I’m still playing catch-up myself! This is an earlier announcement than we normally do, so the questions are pouring in before even we know exactly what’s going to be in the book.

But one thing’s for sure — in the course of my research I was not expecting to see this on the cover of Ax #36 (2003-12-31):

Archer Prewitt’s Sof’ Boy? Adrian Tomine?! Jason?!? How deep does this rabbit hole go?

Our pals at San Francisco’s ISOTOPE Comic Lounge whipped up this flyer for our annual post-APE jam (including probably the most wholesome-looking photo of Brett I’ve ever seen):

Leigh Walton talks comics and maybe other arts. (RSS)
He also works for the very excellent publisher Top Shelf Productions (which does not necessarily endorse the views and opinions, etc, herein).
