on a Friday AM
I'm planning a full review for later this weekend or week, but here's a heads up for CCS senior Alexis Frederick-Frost's first self-published graphic novel,
And I must let you know about the Trees & Hills and Friends anthology comic just out, which my son Dan and I have a humble two-pager in, and that's all
Trees & Hills cofounders Dan Barlow and Colin Tedford are the editors and coordinators of note, coaxing comics from crusty old-timers and neophytes alike, and the comic debuts this week (Colin is off to Stumptown Comics Fest in Portland, Oregon, and Dan will have a clutch of 'em to sell at the The Comic Book Show in Nashua, N.H. on Oct. 29). Hence, this announcement!
Trees & Hills and Friends is a fat 60 pages, packed with 19 comics by 22 creators from NH, VT and western MA, namely Megan Baehr, Daniel Barlow, Marek Bennett, Daniel Bissette, Stephen R. Bissette, Bill Couture, Colleen Frakes, Cat Garza, Chris Grotke, Jade Harmon, Tim Hulsizer, Matt Levin, Mark Martin, Keith Moriarty, Kathie Mullen, Blake Parker, Morgan Pielli, Zach Stephens, Bryan Stone, Colin Tedford, Anne Thalheimer, and M.R. Wilson. All that for $3. Such a steal!
Dan Barlow adds, "We'll have more information soon on where in New England to purchase copies soon. And there will soon be exciting news about a Trees & Hills gallary showing in Brattleboro, Vt. too! Plus, we're planning some release parties for the anthology in the three states for November and December." So, keep your eyes open here for more info and links as all this goes down.
OK, I'm outta here -- got a full day up in White River Jct. and Woodstock, VT today, and big -- big -- news likely next week relevant to all that...
