by the Closed Caption Posse We usually pick this up every year in the fall, at SPX, but CCC is way ahead of schedule this year and the Copacetic shelves have already been graced with this hand-embossed-cover-sporting 80-Page Giant packed with brand new comics the likes of which you won't be finding anywhere else. The gang's all here, including – among others – Lane Milburn, Mollie O'Connell, Ryan Cecil Smith, Conor Stechschulte, Molly Goldstrom, and cover artist Erin Womak. The comics from Closed Caption Comics that we pick up every year at SPX have pretty much all been hits here at Copacetic, most of all this, the flagship title. While we believe that it's fair to say that CCC is working with some of the tropes established by Fort Thunder, there is quite a bit of original work here, and anyone interested in deeply personal, artistically informed comics work should be checking this out. ONLY ONE COPY AVAILABLE (as of 22 May 13).
Here's the latest anthology from the loose-knit collective of comics crafters that coalesced a few years back in and around the arts community centered on MICA. CCC9 is by far the most substantial volume yet and comes to us in a squarebound 6" x 9" tradeback format and weighs in at close to 200 pages! All the usual suspects are on hand: Ryan Cecil Smith, Molly O'Connell, Lane Milburn, Noel Freibert, Conor Stechschulte, Molly Goldstrom and Erin Womack; and, there are as well the works of new-to-us contributors of Andrew Neyer, Chris Day, Pete Razon Zach Hazard Vaupen. This is a vital group producing work that is not only well worth paying attention to, but, for the most part, also quite enjoyable as well. CCC9 is limited to a mere 500 copies, so you might want to consider prioritizing this one. WAREHOUSE FIND! A handful of copies of this nifty anthology just made its way into our hands, and we are now offering these copies for a tight 40% off! These won't be around forever... and now they're gone. It's possible we'll be able to find more.
