this is the wraparound risograph cover image to the new Study Group Comics publication, a print version of my own It Will All Hurt webcomic!
the entire comic will be in full color on high quality bright newsprint in an oversized “Golden Age” format (48 pages at 7.37″ x 10.62″) comic book with two color risographed covers – the same format as The Secret Voice v2 #1. This will be a singularly attractive print object.
It Will All Hurt #1 contains chapters 1 & 2 plus bonus IWAH pin ups and design work by myself.
I implore anyone who likes the webcomic and wants to own a hard copy to pre-order it from studygroup comics. That helps us get the printing costs taken care of and it helps you get the book in your hands before anyone else!
IWAH #1 is available in both regular and a limited Special Edition of 50 signed and numbered with an original sketch by me and comes with an 11″x17″ signed risograph poster of the cover.
All pre-orders will get some cool extra Study Group goodies too!
IWAH #1 will debut in late April at the Stumptown Comics Fest, but we’ll start sending out pre-orders as soon as they are ready.
i am working on a bunch of things right now, feeling sort of schizophrenic at the constant gear shifting but at least it seems like i am getting close to seeing a lot of these projects to completion. the past few days i have been vigorously working at putting together a sketchbook/artbook/personal comics anthology for chris pitzer at adhouse. here is a sort of recentish sketch.
Wizard world has come to portland and i am going to be there at the press gang table doing prophet and it will all hurt sketches saturday and sunday only. the show is today(friday) as well but i can’t make it for that. here is the info from the press gang tumblr.
