Howdy All- I wanted to let all the greta folks who have supported me in the past that I have a new Kickstarter running in an effort to publish two additional comics in 2014
One is a reprint of Pure Entertainment Comics #4. Originally published in 1983 by Look Mom, Comics!, brought together some of the best cartooning talent in alternative comics from the New York area (and beyond!) to celebrate, denigrate and generally disseminate Rock Music. Many of the artists in Pure Entertainment went on to bigger and better things and this reprint will provide a great "Then and now" perspective on these great cartoonists. Pure Entertainment will be a 72 page, B&W 5" x 7.5" pocket book edited by Pete Friedrich and featuring pieces by Bob Camp, Peter Kuper, Mort Todd, J.B. Bonivert, Dave Simons, Bobby London, Gary Hallgren, Gene Fama, Michael Fontanelli, Eric Cartier, Voss, Liberatore, and much more! The book includes a huge range illustrated of bands and songs – from early Roxy Music to New York Dolls to Devo to Geza X and everything inbetween, plus lots of original storylines! Many of the artists in Pure Entertainment went on to bigger and better things and this reprint will show their amazing original stories and also provide a great "Then and now" perspective on these great cartoonists.
The second is a true story about about record stores, sketchy night clubs and meeting the Ramones! "Do You Remember Rock N Roll Record Stores" is adapted from Bela Koe-Krompecher's self titled blog about his life back in the early 90s and is illustrated by Andy Bennett. As always, thanks for your support in whatever form it might take, be it pledges or just throwing up the link on your twitter and facebook feeds!
