  3. SPX 2014 Debut

    The Fuglies:

    "A pair of genetically enhanced girls go on a rampage of murder and cannabilistic mayhem while being chased by the authorities through a wilderness populated by savage genetic freaks & horrific mutations. "

    Steve Carter and Antoinette Rydyr as the collective S.C.A.R. have produced some of the most powerful Horror and Sci-fi comics to come out of Australia. Drawing inspiration from the themes and art of 50’s and 60’s genre comics and then taking it up several notches, The Fuglies is the perfect example of Steve and Antoinette’s modern blend of hardcore Horror and Sci-Fi.

    The Fuglies will be available at SPX in September and elsewhere soon after.

    Pick up 104 pages of full colour S.C.A.R. in the Savage Bitch collection available now from Te Pikitia Press Store.

    Tomorrow we’ve got a press release going out highlighting the international guests we’re excited to welcome to SPX 2014.

    Some you may recognize immediately, others you may be encountering for the first time but every one of these talented creators is someone you should know!

    Here’s the rundown!

    Simon Hanselmann will arrive from Australia to debut Megahex, his eagerly awaited new collection from Fantagraphics, collecting the darkly comedic and unexpectedly moving comics that have earned him an enormous following online.

    At SPX, Hanselmann will kick off a national book tour with Michael DeForge and Patrick Kyle; the trio will participate in a special live edition of the inkstuds radio show at SPX, led by regular Inkstuds host Robin McConnell and special guest co-host Brandon Graham ( royalboiler ).

    Aisha Franz is a German cartoonist whose SPX debut and first book for Drawn & Quarterly ( drawnandquarterly ) is Earthling, which has also been published in German, French, Italian, and Spanish.

    Franz lives in Berlin where she is a member of the Treasure Fleet comics collective. In addition to an active illustration career she has contributed comics to Pitchfork Review ( pitchfork , Kus!, Kuti Kuti ( kushkomikss ), and many more publications. Her second graphic novel, Brigitte und der Perlen-hort, has been published in German and French.

    Yvan Alagbé and Dominique Goblet will travel to SPX from France and Belgium, respectively, with a range of work from the avant-garde Brussels-based publishing house Frémok. Alagbé co-founded the influential French publishing house Éditions Amok, which later merged with the Belgian publisher Fréon to form Frémok and continues to champion poetic work at the borderline of comics and fine art.

    Alagbé’s new book École de la Misère, rendered in beautiful ink and wash, further expresses his clear-eyed, penetrating career-long investigation into mysterious desire and explosive cultural conflict.

    Goblet, an early contributor to the Fréon flagship anthology Frigorevue, has produced a challenging and beautiful body of work that productively troubles the distinctions between fiction and autobiography, and between narrative and poetic image-making.

    At SPX she will debut the groundbreaking full-color graphic novel Plus si Entente, a book produced collaboratively with German cartoonist Kai Pfeiffer. Working internationally, the pair swapped pages and responded to ideas, images, compositions and colors proposed by the other to test the possibilities of narrative within the comics form.

    Exhibiting as Frémok, Goblet and Alagbé will also bring with them many works from the publisher’s catalog, including the award-winning collection of Kamagurka and Herr Seele’s Cowboy Henk comic strips (an instant sell-out at MoCCA) and the American debut of Kamagurka and Seele’s brand new Cowboy Henk book, Histoire de la Belgique (pour tous).

    Mana Neyesteni is an Iranian cartoonist and illustrator for economic, intellectual, political, cultural, and professional magazines. He is particularly known for his work for the newspaper Zan and Persian language Radio Zamaneh.

    A 2006 political cartoon by Neyesteni prompted riots among the oppressed Azeri minority in Iran; the paper in which the cartoon appeared was promptly closed and Neyestani was imprisoned. Upon his temporary release three months later he left the country and currently resides in France. He is the recipient of the Cartoonists Rights Network International award for courage in editorial cartooning, 2010.

    His graphic novel An Iranian Metamorphosis was originally published in French, and will debut in an English-language edition from Uncivilized Books at SPX.

    Publisher, editor, critic and event organizer Daniel Jiménez Quiroz is the editor of Revista Larva, the leading Colombian comics anthology, which publishes work by artists from throughout South America. Larva has spun off the comics publishing house Editorial Robot, which has published work by artists including Peter Kuper and Powerpaola.

    Quiroz also co-organizes the Entreviñetas comics festival which is now in its fifth year and has featured guests including Gabrielle Bell, Ruppert & Mulot, and Anders Nilsen. At SPX, Quiroz will exhibit work from Colombia and will participate in a special panel about Spanish-language comics, including Spanish critic Santiago García, Colombian critic Pablo Guerra, and American publisher Scott Brown.

    Quiroz’s visit to SPX is supported by the Ministerio de Cultura of Colombia. Many other international publishers and artists will exhibit at this year’s event, including London-based New Zealander Roger Langridge and Australian cartoonists Frank Candiloro, Matt Emery, Luke Humphris, Matthew Hoddy, Caitlin Major, Nicholas McIvor and Lex Sugden.

    How about that line-up?!?

    With my latest comic Monster Zero complete and at the printers, you can purchase it digitally for just 99c here!

    Want to know what it’s about? Well here’s a synopsis!

    So you like kaiju huh? Of course you do! But you ain’t never seen a kaiju like Artema before…

    Monster Zero is the story of Artema, who in the world of giant monsters stands out as a truly unique creature. Unfortunately, there are those who don’t appreciate her finer qualities and seek to make life hell for her.

    Naturally, Artema feels powerless against these creeps, but at her lowest point, she learns a valuable lesson on self-esteem.

    Featuring 30 bubblegum-coloured pages in A5, this is one to check out if you love your giant monsters (and you do, lets face it!)


    For the morning crowd!
