Twenty-five years ago, on May 17, 1989, I drove over to the tiny little Kinko’s copy shop at Golf and Roselle in Schaumburg, and printed 18 copies of my new zine, King-Cat Comics#1. So happy birthday, King-Cat!
I just want to take a moment and thank everyone who’s helped me through these 25 years– all the friends, family, and readers that have made this possible. I couldn’t, and I wouldn’t, have done it without you.
Today I’m in Fort Wayne, Indiana, standing behind my table at the Appleseed Con, an appropriate place to be all these years later, I think. There are few things I love more than comics, and it’s been a privilege to be a part of this world. Thanks!
Project of the Day—John Porcellino’s comics are about the big epiphanies that come from small moments. Characters gaze at stars or gaze at nothing and think about life, and they’re all drawn with a smooth, thin line, like they’re just barely there. Porcellino’s endlessly dedicated to self-publishing, and has become a bit of a figurehead in the comics scene because of that (and also, you know, his considerable talent), and now there’s a well-deserved documentary called Root Hog or Die about his life and work being made.
