There’s a great comic strip by David Steinlicht and Julio Ojeda-Zapata in the St. Paul Pioneer Press today about Free Comic Book Day… you can see the whole thing here. Best of all, it shows a bunch of characters from local cartoonists, and makes a nice mention of the Cartoonist Conspiracy in the panel shown below.
Pictured in the panel, clockwise from left, would be the little girl in Zander Cannon’s “He Becomes Who Kills Him: A Horror Story” mini-comic from the Lutefisk Sushi Volume B box, one of Sean Tenhoff’s Bean Men, Bob Lipski’s Uptown Girl, my character Soapy the Chicken, and one of Ken Avidor’s demons.
The strip also mentions Twin Cities locals Sam Hiti, Ryan Kelly, Dan Jurgens, Patrick Gleason and, of course, Charles Schulz.
Thanks much to Conspirator Steinlicht and Mr. Ojeda-Zapata for the plug!
Saturday is my favorite holiday of the year. Go to your local comic shop on Saturday and get some free comic books, just for being you…
