New Books in the Shop from Matt Furie, Michael DeForge and Study Group


Dungeon Family by Matt Furie. New from Mt. St. Mtn. I like to imagine that these are all the creatures that would be in bonus levels to Narbacular Drop – the precursor to the popular Valve video game Portal. A quick search reveals that there are bonus levels for Narbacular Drop.


There really is a mini-comic revival going on, as Charles Forsman at Oily Comics has been proving, along with Space Face books and Matt Furie’s new book above. I swore we would not start carrying lots of minicomics again, like we did in the 1990s. Partly out of not competing with our good friend Rick at Poopsheet, but largely out of staple fatigue. So… here we are with the second installment of Michael DeForge’s Elizabeth of Canada.


Now a big fat juicy pink and blue slab of a proper magazine has landed in the form of much-awaited Study Group Magazine #2 from editors Zack Soto and Milo George. I’m still too dazed from the wonderful big plate of homemade noodles and bulgogi I ate with these gentlemen last weekend during Stumptown Comics Fest to be able to focus much on the magazine, but I can assure you it is one of the major releases of the season.

Also newly added to the shop are these vintage units: Smith’s Adventures in the Supermundane by Farel Dalrymple, Atlas #3 by Dylan Horrocks, Clover Honey by Rich Tommaso, and Fuff #1 & Fuff #2 by Jeffrey Lewis. There are probably a few other things too. There’s much to be added yet. We are a tiny bit back-logged.
