This Friday, July 19th, is Memphis Zine Fest V, and I’ll be there showing & selling my recent comics like Sultana & the Watusi webcomic primer … along with a pair of new minicomics I completed just for this show. While zine fests always charge me up with enthusiasm for comics that can be made from a single sheet of paper, I need to remember that I don’t have to wait until a festival comes along to play around with the format! Here’s the scoop on these issues:
• Smeary Soapbox Press-ents #15: This issue is another “art” mini, collecting some of my favorite pencil drawings from 2018.
• Smeary Soapbox Press-ents #16: This is an (ever-so-slightly) revised version of a story I wrote & drew in 1993, kind of a proto 24-hour comic, in which a breatharian and an Elvis
impersonator tribute artist confront their haunted wallpaper.
Be sure to come out & say “hi” at Crosstown Concourse from 5-8 on Friday during this annual celebration of MidSouth zines and zinesters! Not only will I have these new (and old) minis & comics, I’ll also have an early purchase opportunity for next month’s ALL-NEW digest (more on that in August, of course)!
Can’t make it? You can always get copies from me by mail, postpaid for just $1.00 each in the US …
or become one of my Patreon patrons during the month of July 2019 at the Correspondent or Art Lover level & I’ll mail you copies! (Plus, joining gives you immediate access to other online bonus comics, including a full-color Human Spring adventure!)
[January 2023 UPDATE: I’ve closed my Patreon page.]

Good luck, Dale, and I hope you have a lot of fun! You certainly have a bounty of goodness to offer! Wishing you continued success!
Thank you, sir — I think it will be a good evening!
I always like to have something new for shows. But I just wander around and give them away. I can’t see myself being able to sit at a table all day trying to get money for them to pay for the table.
I’m glad you have a distribution model that works well for you, Keith!
