Huzzah! The third issue of ELFWORLD has arrived!

This issue is just jam-packed with genre goodness! This is the biggest single issue yet, clocking in at 48 pages (does that count as "Gargantuan" or just "Large?") of crazy fantasy comics from your fave indie-cartoonists. We've got Ed Luce (Wuvable Oaf), Malachi Ward (Expansion), Tom Biby (Two Fine Chaps), Jesse Reklaw (Slowwave), Maris Wicks (Project: Romantic), Julia Gfrörer (Too Dark To See), Ryland Thomas, Jess Smart Smiley (Upside Down: A Vampire Tale), and Eve Engelos & Josh Moutray (icecreamlandia), and endpapers by Anna Branning (Dutch Door Press). All wrapped up in a lovely letterpress-printed cover with artwork from EW founder Jeffrey Brown, hand-printed with the aid of Julia Gfrörer!

All in all this is bang-up issue, with everything from delusional ant warriors and role-playing owl bears to kindly witches and vengeance-seeking shapeshifters. Also, I designed the craziest table of contents yet for this issue, with heraldic shields for all the stories AND a full on miniature battle scene! Check out a bevy of preview images below, if you are doubting the majesty of this tome!

Available now for orders online and also making its premiere at the first-ever Image Comics Expo in Oakland this weekend!

Press Gang/Family Style at Image Comics Expo this Friday-Saturday-Sunday

Sunday, February 19, 2012

Family Style and Press Gang will be at the first annual Image Comics Expo for three fun-filled days of comics insanity! This looks to be a pretty cool and unusual event, with a massive line up of Image Comics dudes celebrating the 20th anniversary of that company and a wide variety of other creators showcasing their creator-owned, self-published, or otherwise artist-directed comics. With Image having a banner year with the new Prophet, Walking Dead, and much more, this seems like it will be a very fun and zeitgeisty convention, nicely straddling the mainstream and indie parts of the comics scene. We're gonna be at table # A608 in Artist's Alley, come say "hi!"

Family Style will be releasing the long-awaited third issue of ELFWORLD, which features fantasy tales from Ed Luce, Julia Gfrörer, Jesse Reklaw, Tom Biby, Malachi Ward, Maris Wicks, Jess Smart Smiley, and Eve Englezos & Josh Moutray, all wrapped up in a lovely letterpress-printed cover by Jeffrey Brown!

Floating World Comics will be premireing DIY Magic by Anthony Alvarado, with all new illustrations... Its gonna be a lovely little book. We'll also have a full range of Press Gang goodies, including the newest issue of Study Group Magazine, Diamond Comics, Object 5 by Killian Eng, and a bunch of comics from Jonas Madden-Connor, Zack Soto, François Vigneault, and more!
