Bon-Bon tee / Bon-Bon tank, by Katie Skelly x Seibei

As a fan of Katie Skelly’s work, I was pretty stoked when she joined forces with Seibei and designed some shirts featuring one of my favorite panels of Bon-Bon from Operation Margarine. Katie and I collaborated on a style guide on how to coordinate your very own Bon-Bon shirt with cloves, smudged eyeliner, and attitude. Katie also pulled some style inspo from her own wardrobe, Bon-Bon, and my wardrobe of primary colors, while I channeled Bon-Bon in an outfit I wore to MICE this weekend :3

leiladelduca and I will be hanging around Artist’s Alley DD-11 pretty much all weekend, along with the rest of the DD Comics Collective including royalboiler popgunwar simon-roy sandralanz mercurialblonde calicocomics sunbakerey  and… YOU???

We’ll have the CONVENTION EXCLUSIVE SHUTTER SKETCH COVERS (you can only get it from us! I believe this is the debut of #7′s and we have a very, very small amount of #1s) and SHUTTER trades. Leila will NOT be doing commissions so the sketch covers are your only chance to get a never-before-published piece by her. I’ll also have a stack of Tech Jacket trades and the Glory HCs. We’ll be leaving super early on Sunday, so come on down sooner than later!

Besides the table we can be found signing with imagecomics at their gargantuan booth over at 312, on Saturday from 4 - 5 p.m. and Sunday 11 - noon.

Leila will also be a featured guest at kurtiswiebe‘s RAT QUEENS AFTER PARTY on Saturday at 8 PM. I will not be there due to my ongoing blood feud with the entire Wiebe family.

Finally, we will each be jabbering on one of these fine panels!

Whether you like crime, westerns, sci-fi, fantasy, or genre mash-ups, creators Ivan Brandon (Drifter), Kelly Sue DeConnick (Bitch Planet), Jay Faerber (Copperhead), Joe Keatinge (Shutter), and Megan Levens (Madame Frankenstein) know that genre is just a starting point for endless storytelling possibilities. Come pick their brains.

From calicocomics Katie Skelly (Nurse Nurse, Operation Margarine, Agent 8) comes TONYA, a comic magical realist depiction of a crucial moment in the real life 90s olympic figure skater Tonya Harding. I would describe it as Black Swan with figure skating, feature wolf boyfriends, triple axels, and terrifying jealousy.
