New Titles in the Catalog! Ochre Ellipse #3, Mr. Mortiz and the Machine, and Bird Brain #1

Saturday, September 26, 2009

We had a little burst of creative productivity recently, and now you can reap the benefits! We've got not one, not two, but three brand new titles for your enjoyment, and all of them are now available for purchase in our catalog:

Jonas Madden-Connor hits another one out of the park with his latest... A sci-fi story reminiscent of Louis Trondheim, Chris Ware, and Alex Raymond, this is one amazing book! Click here to see it in our catalog.

Following his appearance in this year's Best American Nonrequired Reading anthology, Nick St. John follows up with a full-length mini-novella, Mr. Mortiz and the Machine. A layered story of loss and memory, it shares some themes with Ochre Ellipse #3, the two would make a very interesting read together! Click here for more info.

François Vigneault has begun a brand new project with his series Bird Brain: Lovingly rendered sketches of birds from Great Horned Owls to Dark-eyed Juncos, and brief, auto-biographical jounal entries detailing his encounters with them. For more ongoing nature journaling, check out his Bird Brain Journals blog. Click here to buy it!

Nick St. John in Best American!

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

I just got to see this year's Best American Nonrequired Reading anthology, with Family Style's Nick St. John's Further Notes on My Unfortunate Condition included! We are so pumped for our good pal! Family Style is delighted to be the distributor for both the original mini-comic version of FNOMUC and Nick's lovely, full-length follow-up, Mr. Mortiz and the Machine. You can read more of Nick's comics on his website, and both are still available from our Family Style catalog.
