Big Plans #5

With bold simple lines, classic comic panel layout, and a little self-deprecation, Big Plans is the semi-autobiographical comcis of Aron Nels Steinke. Aron has a knack for highlighting himself at his most obnoxious, sweet, and funny, whether he is watching movies and talking to himself, struggling through an interview, or spazzing out trying to make his wife to drive faster to a comic's panel. In this issue, our hero gets his first teaching job, recalls his mulleted, gun obsessed youth, and walks out of the comic's panel.

Ci vediamo cover

Ci vediamo

By Hazel Newlevant

22 pps., 6.5"x5.5", die-cut cover, saddle stitched

"CiVediamo" is an Italian goodbye. Literally, it means "We'll see each other." Ci Vediamo  the mini-comic is a wordless story of love, loss and moving on. The comic uses overlapping vellum pages to tell the story, showing the ghosts of the past and how they change from different perspectives. Hazel Newlevan'ts Xeric-winning wordless mini comic is a melancholy tribute to the lost loves that disappear like dandelions in the wind. A lovely comic that is just meant to be held in the hands!

Dockwood ~ Signed! cover

Dockwood ~ Signed!

By Jon McNaught

hardcover, 64 pgs, 7.7"x10.4"

Shipping April 29th: Dockwood is a small town in South East England, population 26,000. It is home to a bowling alley, a boating lake and Willowbrook Outlet Village.

It's a cloudy Tuesday in October and the residents of the town are going about their business as usual. In Elmsview Nursing Home, a kitchen porter dutifully prepares lunch for residents. Elsewhere, a council worker sweeps the fallen leaves from the pavements. Along Nettlefield Road, a paperboy is delivering his daily round. And in the trees, swallows gather noisily in preparation for their annual migration.

In this new work, Jon McNaught weaves together the everyday lives of three locals against an evocative backdrop of autumnal transitions. Bittersweet and contemplative, Dockwood is for anyone who believes the stories that take place within life's small moments can often be the most meaningful of all.

Jon McNaught is a Ignatz-nominated cartoonist and printmaker living in Bristol. He also works as a printmaking instructor at the University of the West of England. He has produced comic strips for Nobrow, Art Review and Stripburger, among others. His first book Birchfield Close was published in 2010 by Nobrow Press, followed shortly by Pebble Island, both received wide critical acclaim and have earned him plaudits from some of the world's foremost cartoonists.
