Lars Martinson’s “TONOHARU: Part 2” now available!

“Tonoharu: Part Two” Now Available
Twin Cities native Lars Martinson just got copies of his second graphic
novel “Tonoharu: Part Two” back from the bindery, and is currently selling
them on his website:

Lars will also be at the next Minneapolis Cartoonist Conspiracy Jam session
this Thursday at Diamond’s Coffee Shoppe, so interested parties can get an
advance look at the book there too.

Otherwise, “Tonoharu: Part Two” will be available in stores and on starting next month.

24 Hour Comic Book Day San Francisco is TOMORROW! Oct 2-3

Saturday October 2nd is the official date for 24 Hour Comic Book Day. This year, The SF Cartoonist Conspiracy has once again helped organize the event for the 4th year in a row. 34 cartoonists in the Bay area will be drawing at Mission Comics, Comic Relief, and Noisebridge. If you live in the area, you can stop in anytime between 11am Saturday to 11am Sunday and watch us work.

Organizer and SF Cartoonist Conspiracy founder Doc Pop will be also broadcasting his progress:

This will be my 6th 24HCBD project. As in previous years, I’ll be live-streaming my progress (and short bits of recorded updates) on my Ustream channel. As an added challenge, I’m considering creating my entire book with a BIC pen and some white ink. Check out my previous 24hr comics Robots Don’t Know Twitter, Boof!, and Ideas. I’m also printing full color copies of Robots and Boof! which will be available in 3 weeks!

So we hope that you can come out and join us for this exciting challenge.

Let’s Talk… Cartoonist Conspiracy Message Board Restructured

The Cartoonist Conspiracy message board had never been all that active, but in recent years it has become a real ghost town. With other forms of communications being popularized, message boards in general have become less active parts of the conversation on the internet. I think this is unfortunate… more and more conversation on the internet is going into corporate-controlled “gated-communities” like facebook, where one can only see and participate in the conversation if one chooses to be a member.

So, I’m attempting something that hopefully may make our board a little livelier.

Our message board has always suffered from “topic bloat.” When I first put it up, I figured that it made sense to organize the conversation into different conversational buckets… I now think this was an error. While in theory this made sense for browsing what you are interested in, in reality it just fragmented the conversation so you had to dig for what interested you.

The community button on the site now links directly into the new section of the message board for community driven-discussion.
This is the first area people will see when they go to look at the message board. You can post on any topic you wish to there.

You can still access all the old topics and content here… and all of our cells still have their own sections there… but now the conversation on the board will hopefully be driven by users rather than topic buckets.
