Maximum Rock N Roll Comics Issue

Comics and punk rock are two sides of the same DIY art coin, and the creative cross-over between the two movements is a truly glorious one. So it’s great to see that the December issue of the seminal zine Maximum Rock N’ Roll is devoted to that very topic.

Guest editor Janelle Hessig from Tales of Blarg steps in as guest coordinator and brings with her comics creators like Jamie Hernandez, Gary Panter, Mimi Pond, Ed Luce and also a huge host of original punk rock comics from the wonderful Cristy Road, Josh Bayer, Avi SpivakKaz, and many many more. This issue definitely will bring a smile to your punk and comic lovin’ face!

Available here at the Isotope (of course!), good record stores, and also from the official website.

Happy Mini-Comics Wednesday!

The Wednesday after Thanksgiving means that Diamond and UPS aren’t shipping comics in the United States until tomorrow… so as is tradition we’re celebrating with Mini-Comics Wednesday @ the Isotope and debuting a whole bunch of exclusive new self-published comics, minis, and zines today.

And I do each year, I’ve cracked open the Isotope’s extensive vault of rarities of yesteryear too. Where else are you going to find long out-of-print xeroxed and indy comics by the likes of Jeff Lemire, Jim Rugg, Paul Pope, Jim Mahfood and Charles Burns alongside new comics of the superstars of tomorrow like Andrew Mar, Breanne Boland, Matt Voss, Amy Martin and Agnes (her comic No! Bad Kitty! shown here)? Supplies are, as I’m sure you can guess, limited. But there’s some darn good stuff on the New Arrival rack today. Join us in celebrating indy comic creators today!

Tomorrow the Marvels and DCs arrive on the big brown truck and will be on the shelf by 11am, which we like too. Life is good, isn’t it?

Tuesday through Friday
