Hi everyone,

We’ve got great news!

After a brief hold-up Gay Genius will see its official release this weekend and next.
In Portland there will be a release/dance party tomorrow night! Lots of artists and excitement.
Saturday, April 30 · 7:30pm – 11:30pm
In Other Words
14 Killingsworth St.
Portland, OR
The party is FREE.
I’ll be in Canada at the Toronto Comics Arts Festival next weekend and (customs willing) I’ll have a supply of Gay Genius with me there too, as well as the other new books: The Disgusting Room and Reich #8. Toronto, Ontario is a great city and well worth the trip for love of comics.
Saturday May 7th is Free Comic Book Day and select stores will be carrying Dan Quayl, a free book published by Sparkplug, Teenage Dinosaur, Revival House Press and Gazeta Comics. It has art by Amy Kuttab, Jesse McManus, Jason Overby and Blaise Larmee. Also it is a tribute to Portland’s one and only John Callahan. I should have some in Toronto too.
