The latest Now is here and it looks like another winner! 120 pages of great comics from North America and Europe – and perhaps elsewhere, as well (not sure) – all making their North American debuts, regardless. Arguably the greatest value in comics going. The fact that both of the first two issues have sold out is certainly a strong point in favor of this argument. Don't miss out on this one!
One of 2017's best selling small press comics here at Copacetic, Ben Passmore's Your Black Friend – a public service annoncement in the form of an anecdotal short story describing a particular conjunction of unconscious white privilege and structural racism – is now the "title track" in this 120 page full color, hardcover collection. Within these pages readers will also find works previously published by The Nib, VICE, and the As You Were anthology, along with brand new and unreleased material. Anyone not already familiar with Passmore and his work should take a moment to learn more about this New Orleans-based creator – and take a peep at his vibrantly colored comics – on his "super-professional portfolio website", HERE. Passmore's work strives to provide a much needed perspective on life in these United States and is well worth checking out.
We've been carrying this series – which is now on its third issue – in the shop for awhile, but perseverated about getting up here on the site. But no more! Daygloayhole is Ben Passmore's one-man show (with a little help from his friends and fans). This first issue plunges us into the mire of a Nawlins-inflected, (post-)apocolyptic state of mind. 32 full (dayglow) color pages, with cardstock cover. Letters page! If you enjoy well drawn, irony-drenched, saracsm-packed, humorous action comics, then look no further – this is it!
The long-awaited colllaboration between Ezra Claytan Daniels (Upgrade Soul) and Ben Passmore (Your Black Friend) has arrived. THis 294 page, horizontally formatted, full color graphic novel explores the porous boundary between science fiction and horror to present an allegorical tale of contemporary urban life in these United States.
