AND just to reiterate, it will all hurt is being carried by diamond comic distributors. for issue two: APRIL PRE-ORDERS DUE APRIL 22, and issue #3 will be in the May previews under alternative comics.  orders have been pretty good so far. thanks to people bugging their local comic shop and thanks to comic retailers for taking a chance on such an outlier, and thanks to   for the really nice beat article on it will all hurt.

 here’s a handy pamphlet Marc Arsenault made to promote studygroup’s April & May books. and here is the cover to issue #3 in case you missed last months post.

APRIL 15, 2015. running concurrent with linework the wrenchies pages will be on display all month at tiny’s on MLK not too far from the linework venue the norse hall where i am sharing wall space with one of my best buddies gabriel taylor. there is even a bigger collaborative painting by gabriel and i. here is a older and rawer grainy photo version of it:

the reception is this wednesday, the 15th of april, 2015. there will be beer and coffee and food available for purchase. as well as some art to look at. i am not selling any more of the wrenchies pages i still have on my person but the beguling has a bunch for sale if you were interested. i have spent a lot of time in this coffee shop working on my comics over the years and is one of the first places i went to when i first moved to town. there is also a sold out electric wizard show that eve at the hawthorne theatre, which is very fitting as i thanked them in the wrenchies for helping me get that book done. fyi i am just a fan of their music and have no relation or attachment to any of the actual guys in the band.

here’s a couple pics taken by the incredible artist steve lieber

I will HAVE SOME WRENCHIES COPIES AND DELUSIONALS ON HAND TO SELL AND DRAW IN AT TINY’S AND LINEWORK. BOTH ARE FREE EVENTS.

also there is now a facebook page for the wrenchies. please go to that and “like” it if you are into that sort of thing.

and don’t forget about earth day on the 22nd. so try not to use gas or buy anything wrapped in plastic or something.

friday @ 7:30 pm!
