Last of the Basket Ogress Pages
I'm very close to finishing "Basket Ogress" (not counting corrections, of course), so these are the last pages of the book that I'm going to post. You can read more than half of the story online here. The whole book will (hopefully) be available in stores by May.
Speaking of stores- if you're in the Upper Valley area, visiting the Center for Cartoon Studies or skiing or sampling some maple syrup, there's a bunch of local stores that are now carrying my books, and books by other local cartoonists! Here's a short list:
The Grape Vine in the Hotel Coolidge, 39 South Main Street in White River Junction, VT. They're primarily a gift shop/convenience store, but they've got a little spinner rack with our comics.
Revolution at 26 North Main Street in White River Junction. Coolest clothing store in the area, also have a nice display of local comics, books and zines.
Left Bank Books in Hanover NH has a display of CCS mini comics right near the register. While you're there, check out their used books. There's some amazing stuff.
Stephen Bissette maintains a booth at the Antique Mall at Quechee Gorge Village. It's full of comics, movies, memorablia AND comics by Steve, CCSers, alumni and other local cartoonists. Quechee is a bit of a drive, but there are free cheese samples at the Cabot store in the same building, so it's worth it.
And...I think that's it? Something new next week.
