Jim Winters and I will be sharing table space for the 10th annual Zine Fest in San Francisco.
September 3 + 4, 2011
11am – 6pm
San Francisco County Fair Building
1199 9th Ave and Lincoln Way
in Golden Gate Park
We’ll be selling screen prints and zines as well as our latest collaborative effort, Queen for Two Weeks. There will also be a special appearance (and signing) by our imaginary office assistant, Ondine LaBoeuf. We’ll be sitting right next to the talented and lovely Superdilettante.
Come say hi!
The 99th issue of the Elsewhere Philatelic Society zine is now available!
It has 32 pages. There are articles about the Key System and Ornithopter Jumpsuits and by such luminaries as Erik Jamuel. The cover (and Commemorative Stamp) were created by yours truly. It is good, and you want one. A lot of love went into this one. It’s rich with content. CONTENT, people! It ain’t just another pretty thing to behold.
Send four well-concealed one-dollar bills (or two two-dollar bills or one two-dollar bill and two one-dollar bills) to EPS / P.O. Box 411553 / San Francisco CA 94141. No checks, no credit cards, no money orders, NO COINS.
You can also buy one at Needles & Pens, Dog-Eared Books, Issues, and Goteblud.

A few highlights from the Alternative Press Expo (a.k.a. ‘The Temple of Spendy’):
First of all, I have to mention my yearly APE companion: Anne-Maria. I love going to these things with AM. She talks to everyone. EVERYONE. She is not afraid tell the scary metal-obsessed tattooed boys that she wants their shirt. She draws out the shut-ins and makes them feel human again. She’s a gem.
The Queer Comics Panel hosted by Justin Hall is always a lot of fun. A good discussion of Genre: Slice of Life books vs. Fantasy books. Sat with the Verasphere for this talk, and I think they should start a Mrs. Vera comic ! Was most interested in Cedric Hollows by Sina Grace. I need to get myself a copy. Liz Baillie was also amusing: need to check out ‘My Brain Hurts’.
In other gay comics news: Wuvable Oaf. Bought a couple of issues, and they’re hilarious. I was laughing at loud in the aisle at the image of Baby Wuvable Oaf emerging from his mother’s loins, already sporting a thick beard and hairy arms. Too much.
Big news in lynda barry land (straight from the mouth of the D&Q guy): ‘the near sighted monkey’ is turning in to to a ‘what it is’ style work-book about drawing. All hail LYNDA BARRY!
A few new hardcover books (I budgeted $100 for the expo, aaand spent every thin dime) HOT POTATOE by Marc Bell, and Masterpiece Comics by Robert Sikoryak (who also gave a talk on Sunday with my friend Isabel Samaras). Got these fine fellows to sign my books.
