New comics on the Radiator site today from Marnie Galloway (In The Sounds And Seas vol 2), Sam Sharpe (The Love Particle) and Jeff Zwirek (Blackstar No. 6).  

All three of them, along with Leslie Perrine & Grace Tran will be featured artists at Radiator’s kiosk at Redmoon’s Inaugural Great Chicago Fire Festival this Saturday, October 4 from 3:00 - 9:30!

If you live in or relatively near the city of Chicago, this festival should be on your schedule for Saturday.  It is going to be a huge spectacle full of fire and music, bringing together Chicago’s neighborhoods to the main branch of the Chicago River.

His series Phase 7 will delight you, and his graphic novel, Basewood will move you with its massive imagery, detailed world-building and mosaic-like patterning!

What are you waiting for!  Alec awaits!

Happy National Voter Registration Day, Tumblr.
The number one way of celebrating it? Registering to vote.
Every year, millions of eligible Americans neglect to register, which means that millions of important voices are utterly silent on Election Day. Don’t be one of them. There’s basically a 100% chance that something you care about is on the ballot, something you don’t want to be quiet about.
So be one of the loud ones. Register already. It’s an easy form that you already know all the answers to. No excuses.

Thanks so much to Neil Brideau of  ohboycomics for making sure I didn’t miss out on this amazing diorama / comic set for his ongoing book, The Plot. It’s meticulous and beautiful. I also owe Neil BIG for that blueberry muffin on Sunday morning, which helped me narrowly avert collapse.
Neil is a long time SPX volunteer, regular SPX exhibitor, a key organizer of Chicago’s CAKE festival, proprietor
of the new comics distro radiatorcomics and ALSO one of those people who, when you meet him, you sense his passion, resolve and enthusiasm instantly.  
I am so privileged to know him, call him a friend and to have him a part of the SPX family! 

Woah what!!!! Thanks Michael! SPX was a total blast and then one half of another blast.
