Several friends had booths at this year's San Diego Comic-con, so
I thought I would give their things a plug or two.
This was the booth for the Pu-pu Bros., a group of cool artists from Portland including Bwana Spoons, Martin Ontiveros, and APAK.
You should check out the new issue of their comics 'zine, Pencil Fight #3!
This is a picture of my friend Taro with manga artist, Yoshihiro Tatsumi. Well know comic book guy, Adrian Tomine (Optic Nerve) was involved in helping get Tatsumi's comics published in English recently in a collection called The Push Man and Other Stories.
A second volume, Abandon the Old in Tokyo comes out later this year.
Here is a picture of Deric Hughes, co-creator of the comic series Living in Infamy. It's about a town of super villains in the witness protection program. They are hoping to develop it into a film down the line.
Ludivico Technique, the publisher, has a new title The Red Line coming out later this year as well.
Here is the booth for CFQ/Femme Fatales magazine. CFQ was known as Cinemafantastique and has been around covering all things genre in Hollywood for a long time. It's sister publication is Femme Fatales, and that magazine features up and coming movie starlets in states of near undress.
In the fall, these guys are planning on releasing Geek Monthly, kind of nerdy "Maxim".
