Can it really be that I haven’t published a new minicomic in over a year? Obviously, that situation needs to be remedied immediately – and it shall! I will have a brand new minicomic debuting at the Locust Moon Comics Festival next weekend. Trepanation: Elective Surgery You Need Like A Hole In The Head is the print version of a comic originally published on The Nib. It explores the history and practices of the International Trepanation Advocacy Group, a small group of people who believe that drilling a small hole in your skull may be beneficial or even necessary to full brain function and mental health. This is a 16-page black and white comic with a full color cover, and will be sold at the show for $4 each.
Not going to be at Locust Moon this weekend? Fear not! After I return from Philadelphia, issues of this comic will be made available through my Etsy shop.
Interested in minicomics? I will be teaching a minicomics workshop in Philadelphia on Thursday, October 23rd. We’ll discuss various production methods, look at examples, and each student will have the opportunity to make a minicomic of their very own! The workshop will be held from 7-9pm at the Kelly Writers’ House (3805 Locust Walk). To sign up, email firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line: MINICOMICS, yes!
