Hey everyone! Just a little heads-up about the new zines available at Black Light Diner Distro!

HIGH ON BURNING PHOTOGRAPHS #5/ASYLUM #1 (Pittsburgh, PA/Santa Clarita, CA)

This split between Ocean and her penpal Matt, who is incarcerated. Meeting through a prisoner book program, they compiled this zine without ever having met, and the result is a zine on a diverse number of topics. In her articles, Ocean relates an attempt by her boss to create a Jackson Pollock painting, revisits 1997, and provides haiku book reviews. Matt's contributions tend toward the philosophical, as he questions what it means for something to be counterfeit, opines on philosophical zombies, and writes a "love letter" to Folsom Prison. I haven't read very many zines by prisoners, and this one was an eye-opener, providing just a glimmer of insight about what it is actually like to be incarcerated, and the many trials Matt will have to face even when "released."

Thanks for reading!

Publishing through Kablam?
Hallo all :)

Like the title says, has anyone had experience printing through KaBlam? I printed a 4 page sample of my comics and they looked great. Only thing is, the pages had a white strip around them. I found out myself reviewing the templates that this was actually the yellow area which they had said to try and leave some über-important stuff out of it...Of course, this could be my fault since I'm a total beginner at publishing through a company.

I'm interested in how you guys worked with setting up pages for print (if you have), especially for artbooks. I'm planning for one in the future and I kinda want to know how exactly to set them up, like for example with double-page spreads. :)

If none of this made sense, that's ok. I haven't slept for about 16 hours yet. xD

Please Help - Urgent
Karen Ellis, creator of diary comic Planet Karen, lost nearly everything in a fire this weekend.

The apartment above her own caught fire on Sunday night, and while firefighters fought the blaze for three hours, tragically, the occupant was killed. Karen is physically fine, but most of her possessions, including books, clothes and drawing supplies, are ruined beyond repair. The apartment itself has suffered so much structural
damage that she's also been made effectively homeless. (See this comic for an account in her own words.)

Karen is a valuable part of the webcomics community. If you can, please consider making a contribution via the donation button at Planet Karen to help out. Every donation, whatever its size, really counts!

Girl-Wonder.org, the organisation that hosts Planet Karen, is also planning a fundraising auction on Karen's behalf. If you have items you think you'd like to donate, please contact Karen Healey at ten.karen@gmail.com for details.

ETA: Please repost, email etc.--just make sure to catch the links!

ETA again: PayPal is not being link-friendly, so the link above now goes to Planet Karen, which has a donation button that actually works.

Killing the Grizzly #1: A Bold New Era

Written By: Dave Baxter

The world has changed.

There are less theatrical ways to put that, but none simpler in declaring this manifest truth: we’ve progressed. Beyond the printed page, though we’ve yet to leave those bastard scions of trees behind; beyond the water-stained warehouses and corner-crumpled cardboard boxes of overfed distribution systems. We feel far stranger today sitting there with a newspaper in hand, unable to double-click on names within the articles.

Writers, Artists, Bandits, and Revolutionaries--

SuperGrrrl Adventure Comix is a multimedia second-gen riot grrrl-themed anthology zine. We released our first issue with a bang this August, and we'd like our second to be every bit as awesome!

To that end, we are looking for submissions of previously unpublished original fiction, nonfiction, poetry, black-and-white art, comic strips, interviews, articles, and reviews; from writers and artists of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. As usual, we are looking for a wide range of topics and perspectives, but if you're feeling thematic, we'll give you a very loose theme to work with: gentrification, appropriation of alternative culture, and ways to counter 'em! (Submissions do NOT have to follow this theme, nor will all pieces we publish--take it as a loose suggestion at best.)


We cannot pay contributors at this time, but we will happily give you contributor copies, random comic books, and our undying gratitude.

Please see below for guidelines, and feel free to forward this around or post it anywhere you'd consider appropriate.
