Market Monday: Small Press New Releases - April 16, 2014

Bohemians: A Graphic History GN, includes work by Sharon Rudahl, Sabrina Jones, Afua Richardson, Rebecca Migdal, Summer McClinton, and Ellen Lindner

The nineteenth-century countercultures that came to define the bohemian lifestyle spanned both sides of the Atlantic, ranging from Walt Whitman to Josephine Baker, and from Gertrude Stein to Thelonius Monk. Bohemians is the graphic history of this movement and its illustrious figures, recovering the utopian ideas behind millennial communities, and covering the rise of Greenwich Village, the multiracial and radical jazz world, and West Coast and Midwest bohemians, among other scenes. Drawn by an all-star cast of comics artists, including rising figures like Sabrina Jones, Lance Tooks, and Summer McClinton, alongside established artists like Peter Kuper and Spain Rodriguez, Bohemians is a broad and entertaining account of the rebel impulse in American cultural history.

Whores of Mensa #2: This anthology is presented by Jeremy Dennis, Mardou and Ellen Lindner. The theme of this issue seems to be a sexual exploration of “east meets west”, many of them period stories….When reading an anthology, I often think about if I’ve read this kind of story a million times before, because such stories tend to fade from my memory moments after I’ve read them. With this comic, I’m happy to say that this isn’t the case, and that it even rewards multiple readings. http://bit.ly/19dCkgd

I’ve been too occupied to keep up with the events of the past week and a half, so I thought I’d get kind of caught up today!

Featured Event of March 28-April 8:

Saturday, March 31 – Sunday, April 1, 2012

There are a lot of conventions this weekend, but I’m compelled to recommend Oz Comic Con at the Goyder Pavillion in Adelaide, South Australia!

I know from past messages that Aussie comics fans aren’t always sure which pros are among their numbers, and aspiring Aussie creators have to contend with the vast distance between them and the Big Two editors.

Pros at this year’s Adelaide Oz Con include none other than DC artist Nicola Scott (Birds of Prey, Secret Six, the upcoming Earth-Two) and OEL mangaka Queenie Chan (The Dreaming, In Odd We Trust)!  In addition, Nicola Scott will be doing portfolio reviews on Sunday morning!  Be sure to sign up early at the Information Booth.

There is also an artists’ alley, but I can’t find a listing for who’s there— tell me if you are!  Or go there and discover new Aussie lady creators!

Market Monday
Undertow GN by Ellen Lindner

Set amidst the chaos of a 1950s summer weekend on Coney Island, Undertow tells the story of Rhonda, a girl overwhelmed by events beyond her control - her mother’s alcoholism, her best friend’s death by drowning - and now a social worker who’s intent on making it all better.
'Beautifully drawn in a sinuous, sharp style, Lindner's characters are unforgettable…' Jessica Abel (La Perdida, Artbabe).

A very cool UK comics project has been brought to my attention that features a ton of awesome British comics talent— including many, many ladies.

Nelson is a 250-page collaboration between 54 of the UK’s most exciting comic creators. It is an unprecedented experiment to create one complete story – a collective graphic novel.
London, 1968. A daughter is born to Jim and Rita Baker. Her name is Nel. This is her story, told in yearly snapshots. Each chapter records the events of a single day, weaving one continuous ribbon of pictures and text that takes us on a 43- year journey from Nel Baker’s birth to 2011.
Based on an original idea by Rob Davis and co-edited by Davis and Woodrow Phoenix, Nelson celebrates the incredible diversity of talent in British comics today. Creators known for their editorial and national newspaper strips unite with those from humour comics such as the Beano, The Dandy, and MAD Magazine joining a wealth of talent from children’s books, indie publishing and webcomics, with the science fiction and superhero worlds of 2000AD, Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse.
Part exquisite corpse and part relay race, Nelson spans decades of British history and a myriad of stylistic approaches in telling the story of one woman’s life by 54 creators, in 54 episodes, detailing 54 days. The result is a surprising and compellingly readable book that is sad, funny, moving, poignant, ridiculous, heartfelt, and real. This is a story like none you have seen before. (via Blank Slate Books)

Female creators include Ellen Lindner, Sarah McIntyre, Suzy Varty, Katie Green, Simone Lia, Kate Charlesworth, Kristina Baczynski, Kate Brown, Carol Swain, Philippa Rice, Kate Evans, Alice Duke, Posy Simmonds, and Laura Howell.  
All proceeds go to Shelter, a housing and homelessness charity.  You can order it from the publisher at the link above.  You can check out some preview art at the Forbidden Planet blog.
