Ed Luce + SF Pride

Join us in celebrating SF Pride Month with one of our most favorite comic creators of all… WUVABLE OAF‘s Ed Luce!

We’ve been championing this amazing comic series since way back in 2007, and we couldn’t be happier to get to have Ed back in for another official event.

Ed will be sketching and signing his two brilliant body-positive bear-is-beautiful hardcover volumes WUVABLE OAF (back in print!) and WUVABLE OAF: BLOOD & METAL. And also the oh-so elusive brand new flipbook issue WUVABLE OAF #5 (are we still the only shop with these? We might be.)! We’ve also dug up a few copies of HENRY & GLENN FOREVER AND EVER #1 which features a fantastic Ed Luce love story featuring the cutest couple in all of comics, Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig.

And what better way to do an Ed Luce event than with a rare turn of events… we’re also stocking a bunch of variant covers featuring Ed’s art, including the Robin Hood and his band of badass queer outlaws comic MERRY MEN #1 and also Ed’s contribution to Image Comics celebrated #Pride Variant Covers, DEADLY CLASS #29 and REDNECK #3! Now we’ll admit that we’re a bit biased but objectively these are the two best ones of all of these variants, right?! Totally! Also, hey Ed, how do we get one of those great t-shirts?!

Looking forward to seeing you all!

It Is A Wuvable Pride Weekend

In honor of Pride Weekend we’re celebrating with local cartoonist & SF indy comics icon Ed Luce.

We’ve got a worldwide exclusive version of his comic with shiny “foil ink” covers that Ed has been calling the WUVABLE OAF #1: PINK FOR PRIDE CHROMIUM EDITION, and we’re also carrying two of his limited edition HENRY & GLENN prints, including a classic and also a brand spankin’ new print. Check them out:

SF Pride Weekend!

In celebration of SF Pride weekend, here’s a sneak peek of Fantagraphics’ upcoming NO STRAIGHT LINES: FOUR DECADES OF QUEER COMICS historical anthology put together and edited by Isotope regular Justin Hall of GLAMAZONIA fame.

This book is debuting at San Diego Comic Con this year but Justin was kind enough to give us a peek at an advance copy during our (rather awesome) HENRY & GLENN party. NO STRAIGHT LINES is a massive 328-page hardcover and the first real comprehensive historical look at the history of LGBTQ comics. Filled with excerpts by creators like Alison Bechdel, Howard Cruse, Christine Smith, Ralf Konig, Dan Savage, Eric Shanower, Ellen Forney, former Isotope staffer Tristan Crane, and so many more.

Check out these two outrageously hilarious Mexican wrestling masked interviews with Mister Hall for more about this book. Video one is here. And also check out video two which takes place in a bathtub. (laugh)!

Have a great Pride weekend!
