    Last week I wrote this piece for Comic Book Resources about the new Teen Titans #1 cover. The point of the piece was hey, there’s a broad demographic DC *could* be hitting with this book but the cover is certainly not made for that potential demographic. Instead, it’s more of the same-old,…

    Check out this really interesting article by Janelle Asselin that points out the inherent misogynistic dumbass attitudes in mainstream comics. The artists who is being criticized responded on twitter and just comes off like an idiot and ignorant. Get a brain, stop making boring sexist comics, and maybe create a comic which is better than teen titans.

    The quality of strips this time is even higher than last issues. Once again there is no thematic premise that runs through all the work, as we want all are guys and gals to explore what ever they want. This means there are stories about wizards, cats, hard partying corpses, the social upper-hand of the straight edge community and so much more.

    We had the release show for it two weeks ago in Birthdays in Dalston. Thanks to everyone who showed up, which was loads of you, and all the bands who played, people who did a comic, and just anyone who was involved in the production of this comic. BIG LOVE TO EVERYONE.

    Roll on The Gutter 3, which should be coming out April time.

    image


    TSNTLG is a short collection of Rose’s illustration and comics from the past few years, ranging from observational sketches to cartoon strips to awesome drawings of burgers. Expect funny, bittersweet depictions of little moments that remind us of everyone from Lisa Hanawalt  to Alison Bechdel to John McNaught to Sara Varon.  

    Rose has worked with and contributed to publications and events like The Comix Reader, Spike Island and Bristol Ladyfest, worked to compile the fantastic Dog Comics! compilation(featuring the aforementioned McNaught + many others), ran workshops and has published her own comics such as “Hardware Island” and “Horace and Emma” with Often and Mistakes, a vast comics/illustration empire she co-runs with Grace Denton.  

    We’ll be collaborating with Often and Mistakes for this release which will be 20 pages long, printed with black and blue riso ink on luvly yellow paper. 

    It’ll be released on the 5th of October and we’ll have pre-orders going up very soon. 

    For now here’s some preview images!
