Getting ready for APE

I work in a large, academic library, and we're lucky enough to have a letterpress workshop in the basement. Way back when I was an undergrad at The Evergreen State College, I took some letterpress workshops, and have been eager to get back in the practice of setting letters upside down and backwards.

This week I created letterpress covers for my new mini comic, Woman King, which will be debuting at the Alternative Press Expo this weekend, November 1st and 2nd.

Here's the setup on the Vandercook Press, with that lovely blue ink on the rollers.

...and here's what I'm going to be spending the next few days doing. Folding and binding mini comics.

The other mini I'm debuting at APE this year isn't so "mini", Giant Size Tragic Relief is a collection of issues #2-7 of the Tragic Relief comics. 85. x 11" and 52 pages. It's available right now from I Know Joe Kimpel.

Hope to see you at the show! I'll be with I Know Joe Kimpel at table #217.
